Weekly Digital: Moonwalking up stairs never gets old

"With Halloween occurring this week, it was no surprise to see lots of appropriately themed digital releases and sales on PSN, eShop, XBLA and Steam.

Konami has finally decided to show its face on the Wii U Virtual Console, releasing the classic Super Castlevania IV for $8, or $1.50 if you already have it transferred from your Wii. You ought to give the official eShop trailer a gander. Whoever made that knows what makes the game especially great: the fact that you can moonwalk up staircases. The game also happens to have one of the best SNES soundtracks in existence, you should read my loving Liner Notes piece on it.

PSN and Xbox Live users aren’t left out of the Castlevania loop: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD is now available for download, taking the former 3DS exclusive and giving it an HD paint job." - Patrick Kulikowski (3DS, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Retro, Sine Mora, Super Castlevania IV, The Typing of the Dead: OVERKILL, Wii U, Xbox 360)
