Get ready to do the Monster Mash: Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts has arrived in the North American New 3DS Virtual Console during today’s eShop update.

The third game in the devilishly difficult Ghosts ‘n Goblins series, Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts is a side scrolling run and gun platformer hell-bent on trying your patience and crushing your soul every chance it gets. Donning little more than a suit of armor and an unflattering pair of boxer briefs, the valiant knight Sir Arthur must once again battle hordes of the undead to rescue the kidnapped princess Guinevere from the demon king Astaroth. While most players will be turned off by its old school challenge, the incredible level design, imaginative enemies and gripping gameplay help secure it as one of the best platformers the SNES has to offer.
