That's one brave knight

It may not be that Mega Man game you were hoping for (and thank god it's not Mega Man Xover), but Capcom has just announced that the NES version of Ghosts 'n' Goblins will be making its way onto the 3DS eShop on 25th October in America.

This soul-crushing side-scroller hit arcades back in 1985 and received eventual console ports that weren't quite as pretty but played just as well. Designed as a quarter muncher, the game is known for its incredible difficulty, which requires you to beat the game twice in a row in order to fight the final boss.

While there are no firm details on pricing, the game will land just in time for Halloween. While you count down the days, make sure to check out our review of the Virtual Console Arcade version.
