Akumajou Densetsu - Localization / Title Screen Redone

Hack of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse

Description:

Based on the Akumajou Densetsu Translation hack originally made by Vice Translations.

The previous hack was edited to create a new custom title screen to have the USA name of the game. Original graphics were created by user Vanya.

Also, this hack changes most of the names used in the translation project of Vice Translations, making this a localization project.

Some examples, the name from the previous hack had “Ralph Belmondo”, this was changed to Trevor Belmont to make it as closely related to it’s USA counterpart. Other changes include Sypha Velmundes (or something like that) to Sypha Belnades, and Grant Danusty to Grant Danasty.

This was intended to make it as closely related to the original canon as possible, making this the real worthy successor of the original 2 Castlevanias with proper difficulty and a great sound!

Oh and if that’s not enough, the hack has a separate patch with a new Alucard sprite which closely resembles his Symphony of the Night look!

Thank you for making this

Reviewed By: Animation Guru on 25 Jul 2016

ShadowOne333’s hack is a nice happy medium that gives us the enhanced audio of the Japanese game while preserving the localized American canon.

The ShadowOne333 hack addresses a major issue I had with another translation patch, which is that it restores the canonical connection to the other Castlevania games in the American franchise. While there’s room for both translations, this is my preferred version, and I’m glad to have this choice.

At long last, this feels like the game that should have been released on the NES all those years ago.
