Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the Sega Saturn is a port of the popular PSX game of the same name. This version features the console-exclusive character Maria, who easily blazes through the castle, proving that she's not just another damsel in distress. EZGames69 uses a combination of magic powers, kicks, glitches and luck manipulation to free the world, yet again, from Dracula's minions.

EZGames69 improved the previous movie with better optimization. The movie time appears longer due to including the BIOS sequence and generally more accurate Saturn emulation in BizHawk. Actual game-play improvements are detailed in this video.

For more glitching and monster killing, we also have Alucard and Richter's movies, both done on the PlayStation version.

There is also an alternate YouTube stream featuring audio commentary by the author.
