Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (PC Engine Duo / TurboDuo) James & Mike Mondays
Castlevania: Rondo of Blood was a Japan exclusive CD game for the PC Engine Duo (TurboDuo in the US). It’s unfortunate it wasn’t released in the US, because it’s one of the best games in the Castlevania franchise. Castlevania: Rondo of Blood is the prequel to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Though Rondo of Blood retains the more classic, linear style of gameplay. Castlevania: Rondo of Blood was also ported to the Super Nintendo and retitled Castlevania: Dracula X. Though the SNES version had many alterations and is considered to be inferior to its Japanese counterpart.
(Called (悪魔城ドラキュラX 血の輪廻 (ロンド) Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo in Japan)
