About “Return to Castlevania”

A gateway to a striking castle has suddenly appeared, and an imposing warrior called Richter asks you to help him vanquish the great evil within.

Enticed by the promise of new loot rather than a sense of moral duty, you strike out through the grounds and corridors of the gothic castle to find and kill this mysterious Dracula…

Slay hordes of supernatural minions as you face off against all-new enemies, with 14 unique weapons from the iconic Vampire Killer whip to Throwing Axes and Holy Water.

Unlock 20 outfits as you progress through the castle, letting you roleplay as all your favourite characters like Alucard, Richter Belmont, Simon Belmont, Maria Renard, Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades and even Dracula himself.
