Nintendo Switch Online adds Castlevania Legends and more for Halloween 2023

Nintendo Switch Online

Nintendo has announced Nintendo Switch Online has added some classic titles just in time for Halloween including Castlevania and more.

The paid subscription has added the two new Nintendo Entertainment System games DEVIL WORLD and The Mysterious Murasame Castle alongside the Game Boy classic Castlevania Legends.

Here’s a rundown on the games, plus a new sizzle reel trailer:


  • DEVIL WORLD – One of Shigeru Miyamoto, Takashi Tezuka and Koji Kondo’s early Famicom games, now available for the first time in the U.S.! Navigate treacherous mazes and avoid the machinations of the devil in this puzzling adventure – but be careful, because in DEVIL WORLD this demon calls all the shots! Luckily, fans of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may already be familiar with his antics as an Assist Trophy: Wherever the devil points, the entire maze will scroll in that direction, potentially constricting your movements and closing off your escape route. The devil really is in the details!
  • The Mysterious Murasame Castle – A mysterious, villainous force has taken control of Murasame Castle in feudal Japan. Join Takamaru, a brave and young samurai apprentice, and use his sword and shuriken attacks against swarms of enemies on a journey to reveal the source of evil wreaking havoc across the land.

Game Boy

Castlevania Legends – Storm Dracula’s castle and enter the heart of evil in this action-adventure game, released for the Game Boy system in 1998! Take up arms as Sonia Belmont – first of the legendary Vampire Hunters – and confront the Prince of Darkness in this adventure that takes place before the original Castlevania game. The history of Castlevania begins here!

Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack is part of the new subscription tier that launched in October 2021. It adds classic Nintendo 64 games, Sega Genesis games, and Game Boy games to Nintendo’s online service.
