Castlevania: Lament of Innocence coming to PSN this week

Castlevania Lament of Innocence

The classic Castlevania: Lament of Innocence will be available on the PlayStation Network this week under the PS2 classic section.

For $9.99, Castlevania fans who missed out on the PS2 release can pick up the game starting tomorrow in North America. The Lament of Innocence will be the first Castlevania game to switch from 2D models into full 3D. Set in 1094, Leon Belmon is on a mission to search for his kidnapped brother in Dracula’s castle. With the release of this PS2 classic, let’s hope Curse of Darkness will be next. What Castlevania game do you want to see next?

Konami’s famed vampire hunting series makes its debut on the PlayStation 2 with Castlevania: Lament of Innocence. It tells the story of the Belmont family’s first encounter with the dark lord Dracula, and connects the lineage of previous Belmont adventurers. Gameplay blends the series’ trademark 2D whip-cracking and platforming elements with a new detailed 3D environment.

If you are a Castlevania fan, don’t forget that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will release this Winter on current generation consoles and PC.

    Nice! Big Castlevania fan here and haven’t played this one. I will get this whilst waiting for Lords of Shadow 2 to come out. Can’t wait to play as Dracula!

    This and the upcoming Curse of Darkness will do good for showing fans just how much Lords of Shadow has done for the franchise (especially the 3D titles). Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness are a good way of showing the identity of the ‘old Dracula’ through his prior canonical growth. Aside from Symphony of the Night, those titles have perhaps the most interesting insights into Dracula. They are only a shadow in comparison to Lords of Shadow, of course, but that’s part of why they’re worth checking out for an old-school fan.

    Oh, and a correction- Castlevania 64 was the first full-3D Castlevania title, not Lament of Innocence.
