Master of Darkness, Game Gear’s Take On Castlevania, Headed To 3DS Virtual Console

0

Japan gets another Game Gear title on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console next week—Master of Darkness, a platformer reminiscent of Castlevania, but published by Sega. Similar to Castlevania, you get weapons and sub-weapons to use in combat. Sub-weapons in Master of Darkness tend to be ranged weapons like pistols with limited ammunition.

 

Also similar to Castlevania is who you’re after. Master of Darkness has you play as a paranormal investigator named Dr. Social, searching for Dracula, who’s behind a series of London murders. The game will be released on June 27th.
