Castlevania: Rondo of Blood Gives Virtual Console A Vampire Kiss


imageA real classic is coming to Wii in a few hours. The original version of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood will be available as a Virtual Console download today.


And by “original” we mean “original Japanese version.” This 900 Wii Point ($9) download is an unaltered Virtual Console import. While Konami completed a translation made for the PSP remake, they didn’t use it for the Virtual Console re-release. Few Virtual Console games are updated, but there are Wii games with changes. Nintendo added picture sharing to Pokemon Snap and replaced Kawasaki jet ski ads in Wave Race 64.
