After two successful Castlevania titles on the Nintendo DS, Konami cuts the Sony PSP a break by releasing Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles. What makes Dracula X Chronicles so special is that it is a "re-imagined" version of the legendary, Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. Rondo of Blood was one of the best side-scrollers ever made, but never reached the North American shores despite the great demand for it. In this PSP version, Dracula X Chronicles comes with updated 3D graphics, but still retains the same side-scrolling gameplay of the original. Die-hard game fans should know that the original versions of both Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night are available to unlock during the game.

Dracula X Chronicles takes place in the year 1792 and follows Richter Belmont's quest to get back his beloved Annette, who was kidnapped by Dracula. Richter vows to send Dracula back to Oblivion once and for all as revenge for the kidnapping and to save the world from his evil. Dracula X Chronicles is a much deeper game than it looks on the surface. There are more than 10 stages to conquer, and after completing a level, gamers can go back through it to explore hidden areas to look for and unlock additional game secrets and go for high scores. If playing as Richter starts to get old, complete a special game event to unlock another playable character named Maria (Annette's younger sister) who comes armed with her own special fighting skills and battle abilities. Once Maria is opened, she can play through any of the levels and is not restricted to certain areas of the game. Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles combines the best of old- school, side-scrolling gameplay with some "modern" upgrades to prove that a great game never goes out of style.
