"Castlevania for Nintendo 64 was the first entry into the third dimension for a series that was legendary in the 2D world. It marked the beginning of an eternal struggle for the series to bring to 3D what made the 2D games so great.
One aspect left unchanged in the transition to 3D is the story. Dracula’s has reappeared once again and it’s up to Reinhardt Schneider, the heir to the Belmont family, and the magically gifted orphan, Carrie Fernandez, to stop Dracula. At the start fo the game, players can chose between either of these leading characters."
