Europe Rates Michael Jackson's Moonwalker For Virtual Console

Pan-European Game Information has given Michael Jackson's Moonwalker, the iconic 1990 Sega Master System game, a 12-rating for Nintendo's Virtual Console, raising hopes the King of Pop will make a posthumous return to video games.

PEGI listed the game with a content indicator for "depictions of violence." There is no ESRB rating as yet. The negotiations to republish this game must have looked like Red Rover played by 24 lawyers.

    Excellent. I really cannot wait for the game to be released on the Virtual Console.

    Could this lead to more licensed games?

      Could this lead to more decent and/or more Master System games too?

    Erm, it was iconic on the Mega Drive (I'm still haunted by scratchy samples of a kid squealing "Michael!"). The Master System version wasn't quite so ace.
