While we were telegraphed on Mario Kart 64‘s Wii U virtual console release, it turns out that Castlevania: Dracula X will also be getting the VC treatment — this time on the New Nintendo 3DS.

Castlevania: Dracula X is the Super Nintendo remake of Castevania: Rondo of Blood — a game that originally released on the TurboGrafx-16 (exclusively in Japan) in 1993. The SNES port (which released as both Castlevania: Dracula X and Castlevania: Vampire’s Kiss) launched in 1995, featuring a remade artstyle and graphics.

The game has also seen a PlayStation Portable 2.5D remake titled Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles which launched in 2007.

Castlevania: Dracula X is now available on New Nintendo 3DS’s eShop for $7.99.
