Nintendo Download: Castlevania Dracula X Edition

Nintendo updates their eShop each Thursday, and today they have for us a fairly poor lineup, with the exception of Smash (of course) and the under-appreciated SNES classic, Castlevania: Dracula X. It looks like Nintendo is yet again making October Castlevania-month, with releases of the GBA’s Circle of the Moon and Harmony of Dissonance (our favorite of the GBA ‘Vania’s) coming next week and the following.
