Gargoyle’s Quest II Finally Getting A Virtual Console Re-Release?

By Spencer . February 4, 2014 . 2:01pm

gadCapcom’s Gargoyle’s Quest series is one of their lost gems, but it appears that Gargoyle’s Quest II will be re-released as a Virtual Console game. Australia’s Classification Board rated Gargoyle’s Quest II: The Demon Darkness with Nintendo as the publisher indicating this is a Virtual Console release.


Gargoyle’s Quest was released for Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console, but in the West Gargoyle’s Quest II was only for NES so this is likely the Wii U game. Capcom made a Game Boy version, but only released it in Japan. With Gargoyle’s Quest II coming back on the market hopefully we’ll get the excellent Super Nintendo sequel Demon’s Crest in the future.

    Demon’s Crest very much please and thank you!

    I remember it was almost game of the year in the same year that Super Metroid was released in GameFAN magazine. That alone means something.

  • Kaetsu

    Cool. Hopefully Demon’s Crest will follow.

    Gargoyle’s Quest II remains the only title in the series I haven’t played, and I love the original Gargoyle’s Quest and Demon’s Crest, so its re-release would be great.

      GQ2 is closer to the original than Demon’s crest, so you should definetely play it :D

  • TiamatNM

    I’ve only played the first one but it was one of the first games I ever owned I think. Good game :D

    Demon’s Crest for the Virtual Console. Oh my yes. I will accept the NES version too, but man that Demon’s Crest. Such forms. Much darkness.


    We need Demon’s Crest in virtual console after this one ASAP
