: : : : : Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

[edit] Background

In Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, players take on the role of vampire hunter Jonathan Morris and Charlotte Aulin, a young girl with tremendous magical abilities. Amidst the chaos of World War II, many lost souls from the global conflict were left to wander the world in search of salvation. Desperate to escape their terrible plight, they sought to resurrect Dracula's Castle from the rubble of society, assisted by two mysterious vampire sisters. Now Jonathan and Charlotte must work together to confront the face of evil and ensure that this villainous catastrophe is not unleashed on the world.

[edit] Gameplay

Evolving the action-adventure gameplay that has been the series' trademark for 20 years, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin lets players switch freely between Jonathan and Charlotte as they proceed on their heroic mission, each with their own strengths, abilities and style of play. Players can now utilize powerful Summon attacks in which both characters unleash the full extent of their combat abilities to decimate the game's more than 100 different enemies and massive bosses in new environments such as the desert and Misty Town. In their quest to stop Dracula's resurrection, Jonathan and Charlotte can collect and use different weapons, equipment and items to increase their overall skill level and acquire new abilities.

[edit] Features

  • Two new playable characters, each with their own unique style of play and abilities
  • Strategically switch between characters in the heat of the action
  • Call on your partner and execute Summon Attacks to decimate your enemies
  • Collect items, weapons and magic as you explore the castle

This game is also known as Akumajou Dracula: Gallery of Labyrinth in Japan.
