Mega Man 4, Castlevania, DK hit Japanese 3DS eShop

Fingers crossed for Western releases soon

Four big-name NES games will arrive on the Japanese 3DS eShop store next week.


Castlevania, Donkey Kong and, most excitingly, Mega Man 4 will all be released via the Japanese eShop on October 17.

None have been confirmed for release outside of the territory, but with often ahead of EU and US with digital releases, titles arriving over there can often be an indication of what's to come.

Be warned though - Nintendo won't be rushed. Mega Man 2 arrived on the Japanese eShop back in August and we're yet to see it's release locally.

But Nintendo did recently confirm that Zelda II, Mario Golf, Castlevania: The Adventure, Ninja Gaiden, Wario Land 2 and Super Mario Bros.: Lost Levels will arrive in US before Christmas (dates below), so some of us will have plenty to be getting on with regardless.

Mario Golf (launches Oct. 11)
Castlevania: The Adventure (launches Oct. 25)
Ninja Gaiden (launches Nov. 8)
Zelda II - The Adventure of Link (launches Nov. 22)
Wario Land II (launches Dec. 20)
Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (launches Dec. 27)
