Castlevania: Symphony of the Evening is certainly top-of-the-line video games of the ’90s, and arguably probably the most influential titles of the previous few a long time. Together with Tremendous Metroid, it sired the Metroidvania style which continues to see new additions as much as this very day. It additionally boasts superb 2D paintings and a luxurious soundtrack; mainly, it is good things, and ought to be on as many platforms as potential in 2020.
The excellent news is that Konami is listening. The unhealthy information is that it has chosen to launch Symphony of the Evening on smartphones somewhat than the Nintendo Change. The sport has simply launched on iOS and Android for the astonishingly low value of $2.99 / £2.99 (and with no in-app purchases, both), which suggests this basic title will be loved by hundreds of thousands of recent gamers (effectively, ‘loved’ being a loosely-used time period provided that it has horribly imprecise on-screen controls which imply your fingers obscure a lot of the motion).
Now, we’re all for Konami utilizing its present IP to generate extra income – and with the discharge of Castlevania: Sequence on Netflix this week, the timing makes excellent sense. However actually, Konami? Smartphones are getting Symphony of the Evening earlier than the Change? That is an excessive amount of to abdomen, truthfully. We have needed to have a few sturdy coffees and a brief lie all the way down to recover from the information, if we’re trustworthy.
In all seriousness, it is excessive time this legendary title arrived on a Nintendo system. Through the years it has been ported to the Sega Saturn, Xbox 360, PSP and (extra just lately) PlayStation , however Nintendo followers have by no means had the possibility to expertise its greatness. Hopefully, with the sport now on smartphones, Konami will see match to additionally convey it to Change. Our fingers, toes, legs and arms are crossed on the prospect (which makes typing this actually exhausting).
