This is the story of Dracula's curse from the times before the first Castlevania game. The original name of the game is 悪魔城伝説 (Akumajou Densetsu).

This movie features the Grant path, which hasn't been featured previously at this site.
There is also a Sypha path movie and an Alucard path movie, of which the Alucard path movie is the fastest.

This game has a different sound than most other NES games, because of a special VRC6 chip used in the game cartridge. The chip was only shipped in the Japanese versions, which is why the USA version soundtrack sounds poorer, even though it features the same melodies.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
