I wonder why Legends never got re-released. Is there some kind of ownership rights issues with that game?

@Wavey84
Is it even possible to port the DS Castlevania games to current consoles?

Apparently the N64 Castlevania games are skipped over as well in addition to Legends. Maybe they will be on N64 NSO?

I've played quite a bit of Aria of Sorrow randomizer, and it makes you appreciate how good some of the other weapons can be, and when you should be using them.

For the boss battle before the final boss, Kaladbolg or Balmung are particularly good choices, Vjaya and Laevatain are also good, and if you have it, Positron Rifle is very useful.
A few weapons with multi-hits like Vjaya, Positron Rifle, and Gungner pair well with the Succubus soul effect for health recovery, that enchantment (yellow) soul is a bit too useful.

So I'd been planning on getting Symphony of the Night for a while on PS3. Which would leave Bloodlines and Dracula X/Rondo of Blood as the main 2d Castlevanias I never played.

So now I can just get both on Switch if I want. Suddenly. Just like that. So surprisingly, Dracula X might be the thing that pushes me to get this.

Got all three plus rondo on my SNES mini so this doesn't exactly get me excited. Great for first timers though. If you haven't played them you simply must if you're a CV fan!

Not as far as I know. It released around the same time as SotN and was overshadowed and written out of the canon by Iga and the Belmont origin was instead replaced by Leon Belmont is Lament of Innocence. The reason? He didn’t like the idea of a female Belmont.

And yes we have DS games on Switch right now, Megaman ZX and ZX advent.

@Wavey84 It's not up to Konami if Castlevania Requim gets released on Switch that's up to Sony as they are the ones that funded the game which is why it wasn't released on Nintendo or Microsoft consoles unlike the Advance Collection.

Also it would be hard to bring Dawn of Sarrow to the Switch considering how much that game makes use of having Dual screens.

@Tasuki Well only for Drawing the seals and destroying the ice blocks. But both of those could be tweaked like in the romhack. The seals are automatically drawn and the ice blocks could be destroyed with weapon attack after you get Balore's soul.

Also I might be getting confused here its been years since I played Aria of Sorrow but weren't there a few souls that you could only get by trading via the link cable?? I remember my friend and I trading Souls in that game but don't remember if that was the only way to get a couple of them.

Playing circle of the moon atm. Not sure If I stumbled onto something I shouldn't have yet, but im in the underground waterway and made it to the boss. What sucks is I'm getting damaged by the poisonous water so I go into the boss fight without full health. Do I need a special item before making my way there?
