The game Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles includes a port of the entire Castlevania: Symphony of the Night game, which can be unlocked by finding an item in the main game. The re-localized North American version includes items that had been dropped from the original PlayStation version and includes new dialogue that more closely matches the original Japanese dialogue and new voice overs using the same voice actors who appeared in the main game. This version also has a Japanese voice track in addition to the redone English track. The game does also feature redone sound effects. A new playable version of Maria was created for this edition as well, which plays more like her Castlevania: Rondo of Blood version rather than the Sega Saturn incarnation.

New StoryEdit

"After enduring countless struggles, Richter Belmont ultimately triumphed over the revived Count Dracula, brought back into this world by the dark priest Shaft.

4 years later, Richter mysteriously disappeared one full-mooned night, marking the start of Maria Renard’s wandering in his pursuit.

Along her way, the sudden appearance of the vile Castlevania – said only to be resurrected once a century – made her destination clear.

Elsewhere, another strange happening beset a solitary man.

A man called Alucard.

After striking down his own father, Count Dracula, with the aid of Trevor Belmont, Alucard had sought to end his accursed bloodline by sealing his powers away and entering into an eternal sleep.

His slumber interrupted, Alucard learns of his vile home’s reemergence.

And so it was that a disparate group of fated souls were once more drawn to the Castlevania's foul gates, each with their own goals, as the ever-vigilant moon silently observed from its heavenly perch..."
—Official manual description for Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

New Characters ProfileEdit


Main article: Alucard/Symphony of the Night

Voice Actor: Ryōtarō Okiayu, Yuri Lowenthal.

Voice Actress: Rika Fukami, Wendee Lee.

New Playable CharacterEdit

Main article: Maria Renard/Symphony of the Night/DXC

A new version of Maria was created for this game that differs from the one that appeared in the Sega Saturn version of the game. She plays similarly to the way she does in the main Dracula X Chronicles game and in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood.

Miscellaneous ChangesEdit

  • The boss fight with Maria (from the Saturn version) is included in this port.
  • The price of the Castle Map was changed from the $103 of the PSX version into $105. This references the increase of the Japanese consumption tax from the years these two versions were released.
  • An option in the main game allows the player to customize the screen area in Symphony of the Night, such as stretching, or keeping the 4:3 ratio.
  • An option in the main game allows the player to choose between the English or Japanese voice-overs, which also applies to this port.
  • The song played during the credits, I am the Wind is replaced with Mournful Serenade.


  1. In the original version, a full stop (".") was used, instead of a comma (","). It is most likely a mistake from the translators, or from the developers.
