Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia Synopsis

Gamers join a group of vampire hunters and once again track down the evil forces of Dracula in this third DS installment of Konami’s long-running Castlevania series. Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia features a new “Glyph” attack system that allows players to simultaneously use multiple abilities and attacks when battling evil though 20 levels of side-scrolling action. The game also features a number of side quests and outdoor areas, and a variety of different endings reward gamers for playing though more than once. Players using a Wi-Fi connection can compete head-to-head with a friend, sell and buy any items they have collected, and connect to the Wii game Castlevania Judgment for special unlockable items.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Overview (Synopsis and Features)

The crusade against the vampire Dracula continues, as Castlevania debuts on DS with this fast-paced fighting adventure. Serving as a sequel to the GBA’s Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (2003), Dawn of Sorrow returns players to the role of Soma Cruz, a noble hero who struggles to resist his accursed call to join the forces of evil. Players can enhance Soma’s powers by collecting souls from defeated enemies, or by trading them wirelessly with other Dawn of Sorrow players. The monster-bashing action plays out in the lower screen, in a style similar to that of the series’ various 2D side-scrolling classics, while character statistics and other background information are displayed above, removing the need to constantly pause the game to check currently equipped powers and weapons. This chapter in the Castlevania epic was produced by Koji Igarashi and other key members of the team responsible for acclaimed Aria of Sorrow.
