In relation to popular video game series to appear on the Nintendo GameCube such as Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, Metroid and Starfox there are many people who question why Castlevania never appeared on that game system back in the early 00’s. Despite, not getting any major Castlevania titles on the Nintendo GameCube Konamydid give us some memorable classics on the Game Boy Advance between 2001-2005. There were Castlevania titles such as Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, Aria of Sorrow and Dawn of Sorrow that many people enjoyed for the Game Boy Advance.

While some would argue that Konami should have made at least one major Castlevania game for GameCube others believed that it would have fell below the expectations of many people in sales if they did. With games such as Metroid Prime, Mario Kart: Double Dash and others there is no doubt that having a Castlevania game for the PlayStation 2 opposed to GameCube was a better idea in the long run. Also, during the early 00’s the 2D gameplay on that Castlevania titles had on GBA was something that added to their appeal especially since they were reminiscent of older titles that appeared on the SNES during the early 90’s. Konami making numerous Castlevania titles for the Game Boy Advance opposed to the Nintendo GameCube was probably one of the best decisions the company has ever made in relation to the series especially since GBA ended up more selling than GameCube anyways.
