Currently, North America is getting NightSky, Liberation Maiden, free Mutant Mudds DLC, and Ghosts 'n Goblins next week. Damn.
The NES version of Ghosts 'n Goblins is hitting the 3DS Virtual Console on October 25, according to the Capcom Unity blog.
The game, originally released for the NES in 1986, is out on the Wii Virtual Console in every region. This is its worldwide debut on the 3DS.
This is the first game in the Ghosts 'n Goblins series, which was then followed by Ghouls 'n Ghosts (the Genesis version of which is on the Wii Virtual Console), Gargoyle's Quest (Game Boy available on 3DS Virtual Console), and Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (the SNES version of which is on the Wii Virtual Console).
