Supergrafx game leads Japanese Virtual Console lineup for October


Surprise! A new system is being added to the Japanese Virtual Console lineup -- the NEC SuperGrafx! Except Nintendo and Hudson aren't treating it like a new system, and are instead treating SuperGrafx games as 800-point PC Engine games, with no other indication of the system of origin. The lack of fanfare may be related to the fact that the whole released SuperGrafx library is seven games. In October, what may be the best-known SuperGrafx game, a quite good version of Ghouls 'n Ghosts, will be available for download.

Also good news: another Kunio sports game, known in the US as Nintendo World Cup; Castlevania II, a year after the US got it; and Enduro Racer (yay!). The full list is posted after the break!
