Nintendo Store Update: Beware the Red Arremer

"An impressive robust update awaits all 3DS users today in the form of a few new downloadable titles and some NES and Game Boy classics.

Liberation Maiden is a new $8 3D mech shoot-em-up conceived by the minds of Suda51 and Akihiro Hino. Those of you familiar with the Humble Indie Bundle will no doubt recognize action puzzler NightSky, which has now gone 3D.

Mutant Mudds owners get a free update today that gives them 20 free bonus levels, meanwhile Nintendo’s doing the opposite by offering two new New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC packs for a small price.

3DS and Wii players can also get a couple of Virtual Console games. SNK arcade shooter Shock Troopers has graced the Wii Shop Channel and two classically ghoulish titles come into the 3DS’ eShop just in time for Halloween: NES controller-destroyer Ghosts ‘n Goblins and the Game Boy’s first Dracula-slaying romp, Castlevania: The Adventure.

A word of warning with Ghosts ‘n Goblins: Beware the Red Arremer. He’s a douche.

Castlevania: The Adventure hasn’t aged particularly well considering protagonist Christopher Belmont walks like he’s wearing lead boots, but it has some excellent music. That alone may be worth its $4 price tag."
