Ghosts ‘n Goblins coming to the 3DS eShop next week

The original — and insanely difficult — Ghosts 'n Goblins game from Capcom is hitting the 3DS eShop.

The rerelease is based on the version for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and will be available on Thursday, October 25.

Ghosts 'n Goblins wasn't included on the list of 3DS Virtual Console updates that Nintendo sent out earlier this month, which contained Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels and Ninja Gaiden, among other titles.
