Not only was Castlevania: Symphony of the Night the first installment of the Castlevania series on PSX but also the first PSX game to have a published run here. Follow Dracula's son Alucard as he glitches through the castle on a quest to end his father's life.

The authors, arukAdo and pirate_sephiroth, use major route changes to improve that first published PSX run by 1 minute and 18 seconds.

A 100% run covering the whole castle is also available here. If you prefer the main character to have muscular bare arms and to pray to the rain gods to defeat bosses, you may enjoy the Richter version. If you want to see a run on Replay mode that can skip many cutscenes, see this run.

Note: Due to an emulation error, the audio in the ending FMV sequence doesn't play.
