Konami has shipped both Castlevania: Curse of Darkness and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare to retail outlets across our great country. Wow, that was a mouthful.

“Castlevania: Curse of Darkness tells a captivating tale of betrayal and revenge. However, in an interesting twist, this installment does not purely focus on the struggle between the Belmonts and Dracula, but instead concentrates on two new characters from Dracula’s inner sanctum,” says Matt Knoles, Product Manager, Konami Digital Entertainment- America. “This story shift has given the series new dimension and has allowed the development team to add incredible new gameplay features and character abilities that have never been seen before in the Castlevania series.”

The console versions of TMNT3 promise to focus more on teamwork, character development and control than previous games. You'll also be able to earn experience points to improve and evolve the Turtles’ traits and abilities for more varied, powerful attacks and moves.

Castlevania is available for $50 on both the PS2 and Xbox, while TMNT 3 is only $30 on the PS2, Xbox, GCN, and the Nintendo DS.
