The $2.99 / £2.99 port features game controller support, unlockable achievements and a new continue feature, according to Konami.
“This direct port of the classic console action RPG lets you jump, dash and slash your way through Dracula’s vast castle as Alucard while encountering a unique array of enemies and characters along the way,” it says.
Symphony of the Night first released for PlayStation in 1997. It features Dracula’s son Alucard as the protagonist, rising from his slumber to explore Dracula’s castle which has re-appeared after Richter Belmont vanished.
The title has since been released on several consoles and is considered one of the finest entries in its genre by fans, thus the coinage of the term ‘Metroidvania’.
Influential games magazines Edge ranked Symphony of the Night No. 35 on its list of “The 100 Best Games To Play Today”, stating “When you get to that moment when the castle turns on its head, you see that it’s a work of genius”
The mobile port arrives ahead of the new season of Netflix’s Castlevania anime, which is due to be available from March 5.
