Battle Through 3rd-Person ‘Dino Crisis’-Inspired ‘Paleophage’ Later This Year [Trailer]
He did it before with Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, and he’s doing it again with Super Castlevania IV. YouTuber Lord Kayoss is back again with another mini-doc/playthrough, this time going over Konami’s 1991 classic for the Super Nintendo.
As before with his other videos, Kayoss runs through Super Castlevania IV in a full walkthrough, sprinkling in some trivia/opinions throughout. In fact, it makes for a nice companion piece to our own retrospective of the game from two years ago (shameless plug, I know).
Just in case you’ve never played the game before (and to that we ask: Why?), Super Castlevania IV is a remake of the 1986 original, and sees vampire hunter Simon Belmont venturing into Count Dracula’s castle to destroy him. Considering by many fans to be one of the best in the series (and one of the greatest games, period), Super Castlevania IV improved upon everything from the original game, from the graphics to the control, and even the iconic music.
If you’re looking to actually sit down and play the game, you can either shell out for a lot (the SNES Mini, if you can find one), or you can pick up the Castlevania Anniversary Collection on PC via Steam, or any of the current consoles.
