Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse is one of the most challenging games on the old school NES, and also one of the best. Completing the classic Konami trilogy, here’s a full playthrough/guide with some trivia bits on the final Castlevania game of the 8-bit era.


When I started this project, it actually wasn’t a project, per se. I covered Simon’s Quest out of a pure labor-of-love desire, as the second game is the most sentimental to me. The following year I covered the original game just because. At that point the trilogy project became a thing (and I’m glad it did). This was fun. 😊
