Forgotten Nintendo Game Suddenly Gets Revived for 3DS

The-Mysterious-Murasame-Castle-1A classic Nintendo game never imported for Western shores is making its long overdue appearance nearly thirty years after its creation. Nazo no Murasame Jō, translated into The Mysterious Murasame Castle, was originally released for the Famicom Disc System in Japan in 1986. It never received a port onto a normal Famicom cartridge due to development issues and the dive-bombing of its popularity after release, and Nintendo of America had very little interest in its overly Japanese roots either.

The Mysterious Murasame Castle has remained a lost hidden gem of Nintendo’s library ever since, elusive to all who don’t participate in the emulation and import gaming scenes. Bits and traces have appeared in Nintendo compilations like the Super Smash Bros. games and Nintendo Land, but this mysterious page of history will be overturned for all on Aug. 7 when it finally appears on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.

Nintendo announced it will be the next game to complete in their Nintendo Challenge on its official Twitter page.
