The protagonist of the next part of Castelvania is a certain Soma Cruz. We are in 2035 and the first solar eclipse in the 21st century is taking place. During this event Soma suddenly loses consciousness. When he regains consciousness, he wakes up in a mysterious castle, or rather a medieval castle. It turns out that a memorable solar eclipse has much in common with evil powers, and Soma now has no turning back - she has to find a way out, by the way, dealing with almost everyone she encounters, because in the vast majority of cases they will not be favorable to him.

If you don't know what the essence of the Castlevania series is, we want to realize that it's about exploring a huge castle (and its surroundings) and the hero defeats his enemies with many weapons, spells and agile moves (the game is arcade); these elements are repeated in each part. The idea is that as you discover more and more games, more and more levels - you gain more and more skills, weapons and spells. Let's not forget that Castlevania has always had very complex elements, and thanks to that you can safely point out that there is an arcade game with a strong bow to the RPG genre. Enemies are really different from each other, and not only can you use your fingers, but also the ability to choose weapons, attacks and spells in combat. Horses in Castlevania always put on side view and perfect animation of all kinds of characters - it's no different this time too. It is worth paying attention to a great choice of colours and good music. Thanks to the link-cable system you will be able to exchange skills and spells with other players.
