I got this on release and so far the best part was finding a note in the sewers referencing mario brothers! is this one worth keeping or trading in?



DePapier said:

I just finished the game 100% and needed to give it a shout out. The combat is awesome, the 3D graphics are surreal, the music is profound. A really great experience.
Now on to that Hardcore Mode.



DarkCoolEdge said:

This is one of 3DS' best. Without a doubt. Controls are spot on, combat is fun, graphics are superb, the sound is very good...
It is now my favorite Castlevania.
