Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow

Reach Out and Touch the Magic

  • Release date:Oct 4, 2005
  • Platform:Nintendo DS


A year has passed since Soma Cruz discovered the evil of Dracula hidden inside of his body. Now, a mysterious cult wants to release the power of the lord of Darkness. A soma, you must do everything in you power to stop them before it’s too late.


Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow takes full advantage of the Nintendo DS' dual screen and touch screen technology, in addition to its wireless connectivity. The dual screen combined with the touch screen function allows a new 'Magic Seal' system within the game whereby magic symbols drawn directly onto the lower screen unlock enchanted portals on the top screen. Another key gameplay feature in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow is collecting the souls of enemies to gain powerful attacks and skills. By using the wireless connectivity of Nintendo DS, players can exchange and/or trade acquired souls with friends.

Even without the enhanced features afforded by Nintendo DS, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow would be noteworthy for its fabulous musical score, and ornate visual style complete with dazzling special effects. This is what fans of the series have learned to expect, while being a valuable attribute that attracts more newcomers with each new installment.
