Good news for Castlevania fans who have been wanting to replay the game on Nintendo’s more recent consoles; The first game in the series arrives today on Nintendo’s eShop.

For those unaware, the first game in the popular Castlevania series released in 1986 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Developed by Konami, it was a typical platform game that placed you in control of one Simon Belmont, a descendant of the vampire hunting Belmont clan. Simon travels to Dracula’s demonic castle, Castlevania with the goal of taking down the evil master of the castle.

Wielding the famed whip, “Vampire Killer”, as well as several secondary weapons, such as daggers and crosses, will Simon be able to put an end to the menace of the most powerful vampire to ever walk the earth? Or will Dracula feast upon the blood of a Belmont this night?
