Let's Talk About Castlevania

25 years of memories

This week has been Castlevania features week.

A Guide to Hunting Dracula

The old-school way

So far this week we’ve listed our top 10 Castlevania games, while also launching the Nintendo Life Book Club with the horrific Simon’s Quest novel. A common theme across the series is the quest to defeat Dracula, mostly by trekking through his unfeasibly huge castle.

Virtual Console port is bested using some smooth moves

Those of you brave enough to have downloaded the Virtual Console port of the original NES Castlevania will be aware that the game is hard. As in tough-as-old-boots hard. Here at Nintendo Life Towers we've lost count of the number of NES pads we've broken over the years attempting to put Drac...

Modder recreates first stage for PC shooter

Dracula's castle has come down with a bad case of alien head crabs. Where are the Belmonts to stop them?

The mod retains the same look of the 8-bit rendition in its transition to 3D, complete..

But it's a lovely screenshot nonetheless

Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth comes out in Japan on the 27th of this month, but aside from a few images in Famitsu, we've seen precious little of the game thus far. That's changed somewhat, but not by much. A single screen from the game has been released onto the net, and while we'd rather have a few images to gaze longingly at, it's nice enough. The..
