Fangs for the memories

No sooner has the Australian Classification Board tipped us off to a future appearance from Castlevania: The Adventure on 3DS Virtual Console than it's told us about Vampire: Master of Darkness (simply Master of Darkness in PAL territories) coming to VC too.

Developed by SIMS Co. — who later went on to specialise in fishing games, including Reel Fishing Challenge and SEGA Bass Fishing — it's a Castlevania-like title set in Victorian England, starring the fantastically named Dr. Ferdinand Social.

The original title was released on Master System and Game Gear, and the age rating doesn't specify which version is rated, but we'd bet all our bottom dollars it's the GG release as we haven't had a new Master System game in years.
