Fans of Konami’s Castlevania series may be happy to know that the video game developer has unexpectedly made Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, one of its most beloved and critically acclaimed installments, available for mobile devices.
The game is available on Google Play for Android devices, while iOS devices can purchase it via Apple’s App Store. It retails for RM12.90 across both platforms, which is reasonable for a game that’s been around for more than 20 years.
The game’s controls are done via a virtual gamepad that pops up on your phone’s screen. Our writer already bought and installed the game, and from what we’ve seen, the control’s learning curve is barely a rise, let alone a steep curve. Of course, if touch controls still aren’t your thing, you can always hook up your phone with a wireless gamepad or controller.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was first released on the Sony PlayStation in 1997. Unlike previous Castlevania titles before it, players controlled Alucard, the son of Dracula, instead of a member of the Belmont clan. While it only enjoyed a mediocre reception at launch, the game nevertheless garnered international recognition soon after. Being coveted the title of “best video game of all time”.
