The Castlevania Game That Changed Everything

Symphony of the Night took the best elements of the Castlevania series, injected in RPG elements, and created one of the most compelling games for the original Playstation. A platform-adventure action role-playing game, it was developed by Konami and released in 1997 for the original PlayStation.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night made sure that Metroidvania-style games became a part of gaming culture, reminding a 3D hungry industry that great 2D games still had a place. Every beat of the game exudes with polish, gorgeous graphics, and intuitive gameplay.

The story is too old to be commented.

I highly recommend that everyone go out and play Castlevania Lecarde Chronicles 2. It's a fanmade PC game that came out May 2017 and is incredible. It has amazing game play, solid story in it's world, great enemies, bosses, puzzles and level design. It was blessed off by Konami and even features voice actors from SOTN. Best Castlevania game in over a decade. Konami should really buy this and add it to it's collection (like how MegaMan fangame became IX).

Love this game, and blood stained was a true return to form from what I played. Can't wait.
