Castlevania II Simon's Quest

Castlevania was a cake walk compared to this bloody curse.

  • Release date:Nov 24, 1988
  • Platform:NES



You're Simon Belmont, bravest of the brave, boldest of the bold, a gothic warrior respected by kings.
You earned your praise, not by crushing Viking invaders or Turkish hordes, but by destroying the evil Count Dracula in a duel to the death at Castlevania. But your victory proved painful, as the wounds inflicted during the duel slowly gnawed at your soul.
One day, though, a beautiful maiden appeared. With a soft voice she warned that you were possessed by the Count's curse. She said your only hope of destroying the curse and healing your scars was to find the five body parts of Count Dracula and burn them in his Castle, ending forever the reign of the Prince of Darkness.
Suddenly, like most beautiful visions, she began to fade. And as you reached to touch her, she spoke her final words--
"Fear not, brave Simon, for if you have the courage to risk your life, you will find the strength to win again."


You thought you had the Prince of Darkness defanged – eh, Simon Belmont?
Well think again, cause according to a damsel in distress, evil Count Dracula has left a horrifying curse in his wake. And the only hope you have of ending the terror is to destroy his missing body parts!

Talk about your frightening quest, searching a maze of mansions, graveyards and dark, eerie forests – each guarded by man-eating werewolves, fire-throwing zombies and other devilish demons.

Your grim chances are kept alive in Transylvania, where you’ll purchase magic weapons, including silver knives and flame whips.
But beware the night. For when the sun disappears, Dracula’s curse grows deadlier. And your chances grow dimmer and dimmer.
