Castlevania Chronicles Updates Classic Original on Playstation – Today in Retro Gaming – October 8th, 2001

Retro gaming fans that were gaming on the Nintendo Entertainment System surely remember the first Castlevania game.  Konami was in rare form with this release and gamers showed their appreciation with each new release by buying the sequels and giving free word of mouth advertising.  In 2001 Konami brought over to North American Playstation owners […]

Playstation Doused with Blood by Castlevania Symphony of the Night – Today in Retro Gaming – October 2nd, 1997

Picking right up where Castlevania Rondo of Blood left off, Castlevania Symphony of the Night was a seminal release for many fans of the franchise.  This was Konami doing what Konami excelled at- 2D side scrolling action.  The difference here was that while there was a lot of action, probably more than any other Castlevania […]

So Bad It’s Good – Dracula Unleashed Redeems Sega CD Full Motion Video

Okay, full motion video games seem to get a bad rap by the majority of gamers.  No matter what it is, when it was released or who starred in it, gamers like trash talking full motion video (FMV).  It is one of those weird quirks of gaming.  Back on the Sega CD, and on Macintosh/PC’s […]

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest Creeps onto the Nintendo Entertainment System- Today in History: April 27th, 1990

Taking place seven years after the original Castlevania, this installment takes a rather large departure from what fans knew from the first title.  Simon is on a pilgrimage to visit his family’s resting place and meets a lady that tells him that Dracula has placed a curse on the Belmont family (bummer).  Unlike the first […]

Review- Castlevania Spectral Interlude for ZX Spectrum

Okay, this is a tough review to write for me.  Not because it is a bad game or anything but because Castlevania Spectral Interlude is just so damned good.  While this is a fan made title, i.e. technically illegal as Konami has not licensed this version, it feels like an official Konami release.  Aleksander Udotov […]

Konami Cracks the Belmont Whip in Super Castlevania IV on Super Nintendo- Today in History- December 4th, 1991

The Castlevania series is destined to go into the annals of gaming history as being an iconic series.  If video games crashed tomorrow, Castlevania games, in general, would be well regarded years to come.  Konami has not taken many chances with this franchise (I am ignoring the Nintendo 64) and played it fairly safe in […]

Simon Belmont Cracks His Whip on the NES: Today in History- May 1st, 1987

The Nintendo Entertainment System has many iconic titles available for it from the Mario series to the Mega Man games. One series that is just as iconic and also started on the NES is Konami’s Castlevania series. Today, in 1987, gamers were introduced to destroying vampires with a whip and a classic was born. Castlevania […]

Game Hack: Castlevania Simplified 2.0 Released

If you are a new gamer just discovering retro, or are a long time gamer, you probably realized sooner than later that the original Castlevania is not easy. Not by any means. Konami made Castlevania hard and it became a badge of honor back in the day to be able to brag that you have […]
