Rondo comes home: Dracula X Rondo of Blood to hit the Japanese Virtual Console

When the Wii's Virtual Console was first announced, the collective "meh" uttered by fans of illegal video game emulation was so massive, it could be heard around the world. Pirates had been playing NES, SNES, Turbo-Graphx 16, and Genesis games free of charge for years, so naturally the idea of being forced to pay actual money for these games was an underwhelming prospect.

However, even the most hardcore gaming pirate has to crack a smile at the news that Dracula X: Rondo of Blood is finally making it to a modern home video game console. If the grumbles from well known gaming pirates down at the Scumm Bar are accurate, Turbo-Duo games like Dracula X: Rondo of Blood are extremely difficult to emulate. That's why it was so exciting when Rondo came to the PSP last year, and why it's so exciting that it's making it's way to the Japanese Virtual Console this month.

Undoubtedly, the game will eventually make it to Wii's of the Western persuasion. If we got previously unlocalized, screwball games like Milon's Secret Castle 2, we will most certainly get Rondo. Konami knows that any game in the Castlevania series will sell big in the Western market, not to mention the fact that some maniacs are still willing to buy the original Rondo for over one hundred bucks.

Thanks, Justin!
