Apparently the rumors were true and Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night really is coming to Xbox Live Arcade. I’ve been a fan since I played Super Castlevania IV, which I actually initially found through listening to mixes made of its great music. I haven’t acutally completed any of the titles, I just like them a lot. The aesthetics appeal, as does the RPG-lite, Metroid-style gameplay. It helps that the series sports only the very best 2D graphics. (3D iterations notwithstanding.)
I’ve heard such good things about Symphony of the Night that I’m really looking forward to check it out, especially since it’s a collector’s title these days, on the Playstation.
They’re going to break the 50 MB limit on XBLA titles (almost doubling it). Apparently Microsoft is willing to change its gameplan. I’m confident they will also release a larger hard drive in 2007.
