Without much fanfare, Konami has just released the classic game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on Android and iOS. The game comes to smartphones as a direct port of the original, and it’s available in almost all regions worldwide, including the Philippines.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is a faithful port of the classic title, but it also comes with a number of nifty features such as game controller compatibility, a new continue feature, and achievements. The game’s mobile version also comes in six languages: English, Japanese, German, French, Italian, and Spanish.
First released back in 1997 for the PlayStation, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is hailed one of the best games of its generation, and is one of the definitive “Metroidvania” titles. Symphony of the Night is also the first Castlevania game from Koji Igarashi, considered as the father of the Metroidvania genre (or as others call it, the “IGAvania” genre). While there have been tons of games inspired by Symphony of the Night, this Castlevania title is still well worth playing even today.
