Nintendo adds Mario Kart 64, Castlevania Dracula X to Virtual Console

More classics hit the Wii U VC

Nintendo is adding two classic titles to the Virtual Console collection this week, Mario Kart 64 and Castlevania Dracula X.

Mario Kart fans should have no problems remembering Mario Kart 64. The Nintendo 64 successor was a follow-up to the Super NES classic. The title offers improved courses and a head-to-head four-player mode. The game also includes 20 different courses, an will be made available on the Wii U Virtual Console.

On the Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS, fans can download the classic Castlevania Dracula X. The game was a Super NES horror classic, where players take on the role of Richter Belmont. Players will once again equip the legendary Vampire Killer – as they set out to save his beloved. Battle against monsters that lurk in the shadows and strategically use magical tomes, mystical power-ups and titanic weapons. Unfold another chapter in the Belmont family’s lineage, with more than seven stages of grim encounters and myriad of possibilities depending on the choices that you make.

Nintendo is also offering quite a few eShop sales this week, on both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eshops. Great deals this week include Just Dance 2017, Runbow and Teslagrad. If you are looking for new themes you can pick-up Pokémon New Partner, and
Pokémon Full-power Z-Moves.

The Nintendo 3DS has been extremely popular of the holiday season. In November Nintendo announced that the latest Pokemon hit, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, officially shipped over 10 million units worldwide. That was enough to earn the game the top-spot on Nintendo’s sales-charts, and was an increase of 150% beyond Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. With hits like Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon breaking records left and right, the actual Nintendo 3DS hardware has been tough to find. Online retailers like Amazon.com have had a hard-time keeping the Nintendo 3DS in stock over the holidays, but select modles and bundles are still available through Nintendo’s promotional page on Amazon.com and through third-party vendors.
