The new Nintendo 3DS gameplay takes on the character of Don Ramiro who wards off the evil invading the lands of Tolomera. Note that there are more than 49 types of enemies in "Cursed Castilla" along with 19 final bosses. Nintendo 3DS players are also set to unlock 16 achievements and find the secrets to 4 different engines.
