Something to sink your teeth into

Castlevania On Xbox Live This Wednesday
Konami's Castlevania: Symphony of Night will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday.

For those of you who were too busy being under the age of ten to remember this coming out in 1997, it's a fondly remembered RPG classic. It's the 12th entry into the Castlevania series and puts gamers into the (no doubt beautiful) shoes of Dracula's foppish-looking son Alucard as he wanders around his Dad's house in 2D.

Symphony of Night will come equipped with enhanced graphics and sound as well as high definition support.

It's been a busy few weeks for Castlevania, with Portrait of Ruin having just graced the shelves for the DS. There's another handheld instalment on the way later this year, with Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles headed for the PSP. Now all we need is a full-blooded next-gen offering...

Symphony of Night is available as of 9am on Wednesday and will set you back 800 Microsoft Points (just under 10).

Go download it People, a damn fine game. Great to play, gorgeous to look at, it's only minor downer is its somewhat overdramatic voice acting (but its good for comedy gaming nostalgia). Music is good I purchased the soundtrack for it.

Portrait of Ruin I recently bagged for DS, and it seems to be harking back to the classic SotN gameplay more than ever. Worth the purchase too.

'Have at you!' lol.

I may be crazy but i believe i remember hearing that they where going to fix some of the poor translation from the original. Hopefully if they did the option to keep the classic camp will be in there.
