RIP Dio, Here Is Your NES Game

Holy Diver

What kind of world do we live in where Ronnie James Dio is gone from us and Killswitch Engage are still permitted to make music by law? A horrible, upside down and deeply unfair world, frankly. Here at Heavy we love Ronnie and are also massive nerds so we combine the two by playing Holy Diver, a Japan-only Castlevania clone inspired by one of the greatest songs ever.

I have absolutely no idea if this is an official license but it was released in Japan only, so it must be totally awesome! Five levels of  blessed scuba and killing monsters by Irem, the R-Type people. Did I mention this game only came out in Japan? And that it’s awesome?
