31st October, 2008 – This week’s Virtual Console update is taken over by spooks and spectres, as we celebrate Halloween with these creepy NES gaming classics!
Devil World (500 Wii Points)
In Devil World you become the heroic dragon Tamagon, who must defeat evil by collecting dots inside a maze, and destroy enemies with your fire breath. However, you’ll need to keep an eye on the devil at the top of the screen, who instructs his minions to move the maze in random directions, trying to squash Tamagon within its walls.
Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse (500 Wii Points)
Set a century before the previous NES adventures (also on Virtual Console), Castlevania III follows Trevor Belmont and three new allies – Sypha Belnades, a young priestess, Grant DaNasty, a pirate and Alucard, Dracula’s son – as they embark on their ominous mission to take on Dracula and his evil minions!
Ghosts ‘n Goblins (500 Wii Points)
Brace yourself for the NES version of the arcade hit – famed for its devilish challenge. As Arthur the knight, do you have what it takes to smite evil and brave some of the toughest levels ever created to save Princess Prin-Prin?
