The Castlevania series has been around since the late 80’s and between that time period and the mid 90’s we got to see so many cool titles. When we look back at the some of the older games within the series prior to Symphony of the Night titles such as Castlevania I-III for the NES instantly comes to mind. Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest was impressive due to its day/night in game mechanic which added realism to the encounters players had with monsters during battles. Also, Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest was praised for being a Metroidvania like game with RPG elements which added to the title’s overall replay value.

Seeing how many people enjoy Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest there are fans of the series who would agree that the game should have her re-released for the SNES back in the early 90’s. In fact, the Castlevania trilogy for the NES should have been re-released for the SNES back in the early 90’s similar to the Super Mario Bros trilogy. When Super Mario All-Stars was released back in 1993 it ended up reaching over 10 million copies in sales for the SNES becoming the 2nd best selling game for that console. If Konami did the same thing with the Castlevania series for the NES it may not have sold as much as Super Mario Bros I-III but it definitely would have been a huge attraction for the SNES during the early 90’s.
