Konami’s Castlevania: Symphony of the Night has seen a few re-releases since its iconic debut on PlayStation One in 1997. However, you can now experience it on iOS and Android. The publisher recently released the genre-defining action platformer RPG for just $2.99.
The story doesn’t focus on a Belmont but rather on Alucard, the son of Dracula who’s looking to slay his father. This was done by exploring a large castle, gaining new weapons and abilities, and revisiting previous areas to find the way forward. Seen as ground-breaking for its time, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Metroid would define the Metroidvania genre as we know it.
The mobile version offers quite full support for controllers along with implementing a “new continue feature”. Players can also choose between six different languages including English, Japanese, French, German and so on. Furthermore, you can earn achievements for completing certain tasks. If you’re keen on experiencing the game on consoles, it might be worth looking into Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood for PS4.
