The Belmont Clan Lives!

Dracula X: Chi no Rondo!
Check that out! I have been searching for a long time to get Dracula X: Chi no Rondo (Castlevania: Rondo of Blood) on my Wii. It only saw a Japanese release when it first came out for the PC Engine (TurboGrafx-16) in ’93. It was remade recently for the PSP, but who has one of those? I heard from a podcast that it was out on Virtual Console for the Wii, but yet again, only in Japan. I spent a long time scouring torrents looking for a rip of it, but it wasn’t until about 2 weeks ago that I found a link to it on some obscure forum. Then came the task of trying to get it onto my wii. I have installed WADs before, but that was many moons (and firmware releases) ago. I can happily say after hours of internet research that I now have Rondo of Blood running on my wii. To answer some sceptics questions I know I could have gotten a rom and emulator for pc with almost no problems, but the Virtual Console emulations are near perfection and I like playing older games on a TV. Feels more natural. In closing, hooray for perseverance and a dash heaping spoonful of obsession.
