Drac's back and this time he wants to stay!

  • Release date:Dec 31, 1998
  • Platform:Nintendo 64


In earlier times, peace and prosperity reigned across the land, and no-one thought to question their good fortune or fear for the future...

Then, in the middle of the 19th century, a dark shadow spread across Wallachia, Transylvania, home to many a vampire legend. The spirits of the depraved and corrupt had roused the king of evil from his enforced sleep of 100 years...

Shapeshifting into a bat, a wolf, or coils of mist, he stalked the land...

Seeking the dark and shunning the light, he cursed the gods as he hunted...

Damned to eternal life, he sucked the blood of one young maiden after another...

Count Dracula, Lord of Darkness and Master of the Castle of Death, had arisen again...
The peace and prosperity of the people utterly destroyed, a black cloud of despair spread over the land. Evil beings roamed through the towns, and those who refused to pledge allegiance to Dracula died horrible deaths.

It was then that two warriors came forth, called by fate to hunt down the Lord of Darkness and deliver the people from his evil...


Take control of Reinhardt Schneider, a whip-toting Vampire Killer who has waited his whole life to meet his destiny, or Carrie Fernandez, a young girl with a strong magical presence who is mysteriously drawn to Dracula's evil Castlevania. It is their duty to seek out Castlevania and put an end to its residents' plans. What is your destiny?
