Castlevania is a series that has experimented with its formula trying out genres as diverse as puzzle and fighting games, but the NES sequel, Castelvania II: Simon's Quest, is still considered the series oddball. It is now available on Wii U's Virtual Console.

You can check out a trailer for recent Virtual Console addition below. Super Castlevania IV and the original Castlevania are also available on the Virtual Console. As per usual, the game is discounted if you owned the Wii Virtual Console version of the game.

Our Take
As always, I am happy to see more games coming to Wii U's Virtual Console. There are still a lot of missing games, though, which I've spoken about here.
