    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
     
    If you're a fan of Castlevania but never played the Game Boy game - don't!

    The Mutant Mudds update is out today too -- definitely downloading that.

    Wait, TWO Virtual Console titles in the same day? What madness is this?

    I get confused by these games because no platforms are listed... which platform was Ghosts & Goblins on? It's not the same game as the NES one is it?

    @GelatinousEncore Grant am mad.

    STFU & GTFO.

    Castlevania: The Adventure was one of my favorite Gameboy games EVAR!

    @Zero

    SUPER-MAD!

    In the Nintendo Direct, they said Liberation Maiden, that Suda 51 game, was available in the eShop now. Can anyone confirm?

    Also, I'm with Grant, Castlevania:The Adventure is good. And in case you accuse me of nostalgia, I played it for the first time last year.

    @Jargon
    Yeah I was confused about that too, is it really today? Can anyone check? Please be true!

    I think he said available "today", meaning it probably won't be up for another hour and a half. But yeah, I'm pretty sure he did say it would be up today.

    @rebonack
    I'm very very very very very excited!

    I'm going to be too busy until probably Sunday to play it but I can't wait!

    I'm pretty sure Night Sky is available today as well. Looks like we'll have to wait until after noon (EST) to find out for sure, though.

    EDIT: The Mutant Mudds update (with 20 new levels) is available NOW. (currently downloading!)

    Hm, for some reason I thought we would get more of the older retail games on the eShop today (stuff like Pilotwings Resort or something) but I guess not. Still...not too shabby of an update!

    Holy cow, this is an epic update. If nothing else, I'm downloading the free Mutant Mudds stages. But I'm also interested in the Suda game and Night Sky.

    @GameDadGrant

    I think that's coming next Thursday. I remember reading that somewhere...

    @GameDadGrant@ludist210
    Is Pilotwings Resort going to be $39.99? If so I'm going to cough up a lung.

    @deathly_hallows ...of course it is? That is still the official retail price.

    @deathly_hallows

    I'll cough up a lung too if that happens. To be honest though, I don't know the price. That's a bit much for Pilotwings Resort IMO...even if the game is full of content (which it is). I can't explain really why I feel that way, but I do.

    If they also release Mario Tennis Open on the eShop, I'd probably download that. Even for the full $40. I think that game would be worth it for sure.

    Whatever happened to the promised ZEN Pinball DLC?

    @Zero
    It really shouldn't be that price though.
