Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night

Castlevania SOTN

Symphony of the Night is often regarded as the commercial and artistic pinnacle of the entire Castlevania series. At the time of its release, 2D gaming was going out of fashion, and 3D gaming was considered the next best thing; the future of the industry. For a lot of people, Symphony of the Night served as a reminder that traditional 2D side scrolling video games can still be played and enjoyed regardless of what style might be the more popular. It also left a lasting legacy behind, as the release of the game prompted the coinage of the term Metroidvania, for the style of play that involves 2D open-word exploration.
