Classics titles Demon’s Crest and Gargoyle’s Quest II are coming to the eShop on October 30th, Capcom has announced on a recent blog post. The games are part of the Ghost ‘n Goblins franchise and they feature red demon Firebrand as a protagonist.

For those unfamiliar, Gargoyle’s Quest II is a side-scrolling platformer with action-RPG elements that came out on the NES in October 1992. Due to the trilogy’s rarity, Gargoyle’s Quest II was overlooked by most people, so if you missed it back in the day, here’s a chance to the play the game for the first time. Demon’s Crest was released on the SNES in 1994. The game’s notable for its innovations that came in the form of new transformations, bosses, secrets and, of course, the fact that this is the only game in the series that used a Mode 7 world.

Gargoyle’s Quest II is playable on both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and comes out on October 30th. Demon’s Crest will be out on the same day, but it’s only playable on the Wii U.
