We know that Wii U will be adding three Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games on the North American eShop tomorrow, but thankfully, the 3DS won’t be left out of the Virtual Console fun. Specifically on New 3DS, Capcom is bringing out Super Ghouls’n Ghosts.

Here’s an overview:

“The third game in the legendary Ghosts ‘n Goblins series of video games, Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts follows Arthur in another quest to rescue the princess, his fair maiden and damsel in distress at large. Players take control of Arthur and defeat the creatures of the night to save the day once more. Discover what glory awaits those brave enough to take on the armies of Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts.”

Super Ghouls’n Ghosts will cost $7.99 when it arrives on the New 3DS Virtual Console tomorrow.


It was already clear that Unholy Heights would be launching on the European 3DS eShop tomorrow thanks to the weekly Nintendo Download PR. However, we now have confirmation that the game will be out in North America at the same time. It’ll cost $6.00 / €5.99.

Unholy Heights offers tower defense gameplay along with demon monster apartment management. Players assume the role of the Devil “who creates an apartment for monsters to defend against pillaging wannabe heroes”.

Here’s some additional information:

In this creative Tower Defence game you sucker monsters to live in your apartment building by buying them furniture according to their needs. Once they are in your apartment, have them breed stronger offspring, charge them rent or KICK THEM OUT! Your army is the only thing in the way of you and the sickeningly sweet good folk who try and erase the monsters presence.

And a trailer:
