Castlevania - Circle of The Realm

Hack of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin


Might transition to modern game engine for 2.0.0

Castlevania - Circle of The Realm is a ROM hack for Castlevania - Portrait of Ruin (USA). Taking place 7 years after the event of Circle of the Moon, collect items, weapons and power-ups. Guide Nathan and Hugh to victory!

NOTE Patch the hack using a TRUSTED patching tool and ROMs (read the ROM/ISO information). Use a CLEAN Emulator to play the game without any trouble (recommended: MelonDS).


  • Custom characters (playable Hugh)
  • Custom stages
  • Custom enemies
  • Custom animations
  • Custom music and SFX
  • And more!


  • Version BETA 0.0.1

Played privately by JupiterClimb

  • Version OFFICIAL 1.0.0 (06/07/2022)

First major release.

  • Plans for the next update:

Fix most things that make people cry a lot. Us ROM hackers are also human beings, so of course there are a lot of oopsies in the game on the first release. We’re not professional either, bruh…

That being said, the next update will be huge. Only 2 or 3 people were involved in this new update because other devs deserved to do their thing. The next update will include the following:

  • Revamped weapons (sprites and damage balancing, etc.)
  • Finish up Fernandez’s mode (FERNANDEZ’S mode isn’t ready!)
  • More music, this hack will have its own original remixes (no music from other DSvania games, e.g “Riddle” from Order of Ecclesia)
  • Character portrait (people were complaining about it a lot)
  • Maybe… Just maybe… A custom-programmed thing?

Thanks for the current feedback, we’re still working on the update. Please have patience.

Check the Readme and the “Quality of Life Tips” files for more accessible gameplay. Otherwise, enjoy the game!
