Old school Castlevania goodness

Snooping around some of the shadier parts of the Internet I found a hacked version of Akumajō Dracula X Chi no Rondo for the Wii Virtual console. Some generous soul had ported it over to pal format so that we westerners also could enjoy it.

In case youre not a Castlevania nerd you might not know about this game. Dracula X is a Castlevania game that came out for the PC Engine Super CD in Japan back in 93. Its considered by many to be the best traditional Castlevania and I have wanted to try it out for quite some time. A remake recently came out for the PSP but since I dont have that system and needless to say I dont have a PC Engine with the Super CD add-on so this is perfect for me.

I very much enjoy the pre Symphony of the Night era Castlevania games so Im really happy to be able to play a perfect port of it for Wii, in 480p none the less.
