In the ultimate Ironic Twist, Nintendo puts Shovel Knight and Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse onto the eShop on the same day.
Shovel Knight of course being a faux 8-bit game that uses music meant to mimic the hardware limitations of the Konami VRC6 soundchip for the Famicom.

Akumajou Densetsu is of course THE game one thinks of when they think of games that benefited from the use of the VRC6, and naturally because the NES used a proprietary Sound chip built into the console rather than having the sound chip built into the game cartridge/Famicom Disk System, all the awesomeness that the VRC6 channels brought to Castlevania 3’s soundtrack was lost… aaand this is the version of the game that nintendo keeps feeding us through downloadable services.


... yes, the formatting on this post looks funky because I copy-pasta'd from my Tumblr blog.

This is a busy eshop summer so far!

The fact that there are still new DSiWare games coming out just seems insane to me. 3DS has been out over three years.

Shin Megami Tensei IV is always on sale and I still don't have it yet. One of these days....
