Game 1: Indie darling Cave Story had a strong run reaching the Sweet Sixteen as a 13 seed, but its time came to a close at the hands of Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, which has fittingly reached the finals in the Transylvania region. Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow is the only remaining handheld original in the field (although other titles have appeared in handheld form).
Game 2: The second seeded Resident Evil 4 defeated Mega Man X2 in fairly short order, garnering all but three votes and becoming the second spooky game in the finals of this spooky region. Resident Evil 4 is the only 3D title appearing on a Nintendo platform remaining in the tournament. Both games remaining in this region released in the year 2005.
