Nintendo eShop Digital Download Thursdays

There’s a lot of content this week on the eShop. One of my favorite games from the Super Nintendo is now available on the 3DS Virtual Console: Super Castlevania IV. It has an amazing soundtrack and fun gameplay mechanics, like swinging across gaps with Simon’s whip. With pixel perfect mode on the 3DS, this one will look extra sharp.

For the rest of this week’s download news, read the official press release below:
