Demon’s Crest

The Capcom classic Demon’s Crest is coming to the New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console in Europe this week. Check out a new trailer for this release:

Capcom has yet another Virtual Console game lined up for the New 3DS Virtual Console in North America this week. Tomorrow, the SNES release Demon’s Crest will be on the eShop.

If you haven’t heard about Demon’s Crest previously, this brief overview will fill you in:

“Firebrand must set off to recover the six magical stones of the Demon Crest before the realms of humans and demons fall into the hands of his evil nemesis, Phalanx. Breathe fire, claw walls and hover across seven intense levels as you fight to save the realms from eternal unrest!”

You’ll be able to pick up Demon’s Crest for $7.99.

Watsham also said that Renegade Kid “pitched a lot of things” to Capcom as well as Konami. But much like Demon’s Crest, talks did not progress too far.

Watsham’s tweets are as follows:
