According to Dreamcast protectionists, this version comes from before E3 in 1999, with five 3D environments and one boss battle. You can read more about the game on Unseen64, which explains the cancellation of the game due to “disagreements between the Japanese and American Konami teams”. It was originally set in 1666 and featured a meeting between Sonia Belmont (from the Castlevania legend) and the new character Victor Belmont (later appeared in Castlevania: Kings of Shadow 2).
The anonymous owner started the game from a disc labeled “Sega secret”
When the ghostly figures follow Sonia near the lava pit and ghostly church, the movement seems intact. If it is legal, it is a fascinating impression of a promising game that has never appeared before. This is a very common story in the gaming industry. IGN wrote about the game even before canceling the game, played the early version and evaluated the early images.
IGN wrote: “Unlike the somewhat bland interface of the N64 version, this game seems to have the ability to restore the visual talents that once dominated the series, which includes all kinds of creepy villains and depressed people. , A suffocating light source atmosphere.”
Victor Belmont finally made his debut in 2014’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which also marked the last time we saw a new work in the series. Since then, Konami has been reluctant to develop new console games for its classic franchise-but despite rumors, it has not closed its gaming division.
