Classic NES games return; Mega Man 4, Castlevania and Ghosts n Goblins hit 3DS Virtual Console!

Well technically, the latter has only been announced for the 3DS Virtual Console rather than released, but either way, that’s three pretty good NES games coming to the eShop some time soon.  First up, the trailer for Mega Man 4:

It’s not the best Mega Man game in history, but it’s a decent enough one with some very nice music, and a game which definitely deserves to come to the eShop sometime.

Next up, Castlevania. First game in the series rather than a more recent one, but that’s no bad thing.  Plus, it might get some newer games interested in the series and make them want to buy Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate when it comes out next year.  Here’s the trailer for it:

Finally, Ghosts ‘n Goblins.  No trailer, but Capcom has confirmed on their blog that it’s coming to the 3DS eShop, for those people who want to play one of the hardest and most punishing games in history:

So yeah, good news for any NES fans, since quite a few classic NES games are coming to the 3DS Virtual Console fairly soon (at least in Japan).
