Castlevania, known in Japan as Akumajō Dracula, is a platform game developed and published by Konami for the Family Computer Disk System video game console in Japan in September 1986. It was ported to cartridge format and released in North America for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in May 1987 and in Europe in 1988. It was also re-issued for the Family Computer in cartridge format in 1993. It is the first game in Konami’s Castlevania video game series.
Players control Simon Belmont, descendant of a legendary vampire hunter, who enters the castle of Count Dracula to destroy him when he suddenly reappears 100 years after Simon’s ancestor vanquished him. Castlevania was developed in tandem with the MSX2 game Vampire Killer, which was released a month later and uses the same characters and setting, but features different gameplay mechanics. It was followed by a sequel, Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, and a prequel, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, both of which were also released for the NES. Super Castlevania IV was released in 1991 for the Super NES and follows the same story. A remake for the Sharp X68000 home computer was re-released for the PlayStation as Castlevania Chronicles in 2001.
The Classic NES Series is a line of Game Boy Advance games which were released to celebrate Nintendo’s history, featuring a collection of classic and iconic games from diverse franchises that helped define the company during its golden era (1980s), these mainly being titles from Nintendo’s initial “black box” era, although it also contained selected games from other franchises, such as Capcom, Konami, Hudson Soft and Namco. The box art of these games were reminiscent of early style NES boxes.
