Last week, Nintendo announced two classic Castlevania titles would arrive on Wii U Virtual Console in October. Today, Nintendo announced Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance would also be released later in the month on the North American shop.


As noted in the North American eShop update, Castlevania: Dracula X is now available, and on October 9, Wii U owners will be able to download Castlevania: Circle of the Moon.

Come October 16, the 2002 Game Boy Advance title Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance will be released. The game is set 50 years after Simon Belmont dispelled Dracula’s curse, and stars his grandson, Juste Belmont, who is on a quest to rescue his childhood friend.

Also arriving on Virtual Console October 16 is Game Boy Color title Harvest Moon 2, although it will be released for 3DS.

The biggest release of the week for the North America eShop, is Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. It arrives on the shop tomorrow, but you can save yourself some time but downloading the free game update (ver. 1.0.2) today.
