The best Castlevania comes to Xbox Live Arcade

Konami's classic side-scrolling epic action RPG title, Castlevania: Symphony of Night will become available for download on Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360 on Wednesday, March 21. Considered by many to be the pinnacle of the series, Symphony of Night involves an absolutely gigantic version of Dracula's abode. It's possible to think you've explored the entire castle, when in fact you've only uncovered a small part of it.

The player takes control of Alucard, Dracula's incorrigible son, as he investigates a rumor that one of the Belmonts has taken control of the castle. There are tons of monsters to defeat, including insane bosses,as well asmind-boggling hordes of weapons, armor, and items to collect.

Castlevania: Symphony of Night can be purchased for 800 Microsoft Points.It can be playedas the original version, or in an enhanced mode with spruced-up graphics, audio, and sound effects. It also features native widescreen and high-definition support.

My new approach to play all games on Hard mode straight off the bat has proven satisfying. Sure there is some frustration, but I've decided it's the lesser of two evils when weighed against the boredom of easiness that Normal difficulty has become in the era of casual gaming.
