Castlevania: Reaper's Reckoning

Hack of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

Description:

IPS Patching required.

This is my final update. A large amount of dialogue has been changed, as well as nearly all soul abilities colored to fit Death.

The story in Aria of Sorrow is completely revamped. The game play remains unchanged. However, the story takes on a completely different tone. The game starts with Death (Soma) being summoned to the Castle to locate Dracul’s powers.

The characters names and sprites have been colored to adapt to the new story:

Soma = Death, Mina = Carmilla, Arikado = Alucard, Hammer = Shaft, Graham = Olrox, Julius = Belmont.

I hate to use codes, but I did not know how to modify the weapons otherwise.

Use the code for all equipment in the cheats menu and equip Death’s Sickle, Death’s Robe and Death’s Ring.(Death doesn’t use a pocket knife…)

Played through the whole thing all I saw was different text, a different color pallet and a very quick start to the chaos boss battle. Lots of purple and black. The story is meh. And the game will freeze when you make the Demon Lord enemy drop its soul. Learned that the hard way, thankfully this hack modifies so little of the game you can even swap savestates between it and the original, it gets you a black soma in the original if you load up a savestate from it. Only way to collect the Demon Lord soul is to boot up your save on the original and then get it back on this. I didn’t use the recommended cheat, not sure it’d helped though, Death’s Scythe isn’t that good of a weapon as Claimh Solais is still the strongest weapon in the game by a long shot just because of the only handful of enemies weak to darkness and the abundance of them that are weak to light.

Overall not recommended, the original feels better.
