Daimakaimura (大魔界村) is an arcade game by Capcom and sequel to Makaimura. It was ported to the PC Engine SuperGrafx in 1990. In the West it is known as Ghouls'n Ghosts, though this version of the game was not originally released outside of Japan.
Ghouls'n Ghosts features the knight, Arthur who must restore souls stolen by the evil Lucifer (including that of his lover, Princess Prin Prin). Though it is considered a classic, Ghouls'n Ghosts is notoriously difficult thanks to the constant waves of enemies and traps despite Arthur only having a couple of hit points.
This version of the game would see a re-release on the Wii's Virtual Console alongside the Mega Drive version, though while the Mega Drive version would become available in other regions the SuperGrafx version remained a Japanese exclusive. The game saw another re-release on all regional models of the PC Engine mini, making it the first time this particular version was available outside of Japan.
