Wow, I never saw this coming. Hell has officially frozen over. The classic PS1 game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is coming to Xbox Live Arcade this coming winter.

Arguably the best PS1 game (competing with FF7) and (also arguably) the best Castlevania game. Castlevania:SotN is an awesome game. If you've never played the original, do yourself a favor and pick this up when it hit's XBLA this winter :D

I'll have to check it out then. For some reason I just never got into it.

I always got into the first three on the NES and the SNES versions but after that I let go of the series.

What I'm interested in hearing about are any potential changes being made to the game. Will they include the various extras from the Saturn version? Will they re-translate and re-dub the dialog? (Though I would kind of miss "Die monster! You don't belong in this world!") Will it support 720p? Or will Konami just cheap out and do a straight port of the PS1 version?

Castlevania Symphony of the Night is probly the best one... One of my favorite games of all time actually. It's 1/3 RPG, 1/3 Action side-scroller, and 1/3 Super Metroid. I know it sounds weird, but it really is a total gem.

I loved symphony of the night. I worked through the game, got to the battle against richter and used the holy glasses to destroy the sphere controlling him. Then Staff turns the castle upside down, and your like holy crap I've gotta do this all again. I have to go back and finish that part now.
