Two Castlevanias Spook the Wii U eShop This October

October: 31 days of frightening freaks frolicking frivolously about, all culminating towards the one day of the year where I have to begrudgingly bequeath my precious candy reserves because of some cruel, widely-accepted tradition–it’s a pain in the neck, if you ask me.

Thankfully, Konami is making the month all the sweeter by doling out two classic Castlevanias for the Wii U eShop–two fairly obscure entries, no less. The elusive SNES conversion of Rondo of Blood, Dracula X, drops October 2nd while the criminally ignored Circle of the Moon releases a week later on October 9th.

Both come highly recommended, but do yourself a favor and pick up the GBA masterpiece, especially if you’re new to the series. Symphony of the Night commands a lot of attention these days, but CotM is every bit as robust and enjoyable despite its condensed, portable nature.

Also, this happens.

Now if we could just get some Aria of Sorrow representation…
