Juan Antonio Becerra - better known as Locomalito - has created some amazing indie games in his time, and Maldita Castilla is perhaps the best-known. Inspired by Capcom's Ghouls 'n Ghosts and set in medieval Spain, this action platformer has already thrilled PC players with its tight gameplay and retro-style visuals, and console owners have been given the chance to get in on the action thanks to recent releases on the Xbox One and PS4.

A while back we reported that publisher Abylight was aware of demand for the game on the 3DS, and it would seem that we won't have to wait very long to get our hands on it, as it's just been submitted to Nintendo for approval:

It's great to see that the 3DS is still getting support on the eShop, and having played the PC version we can say right away that - barring some complete disaster in the porting process - this will be an essential purchase. Do you like the look of it, or will you be taking your cash elsewhere?
