The 16 bit era was such an exciting time period to be a fan of the platform genre of gaming.  When Castlevania: Rondo of Blood was released back in 1993 for multiple game consoles many people were interested in various aspects regarding the game including the plot, soundtrack along with gameplay.  The soundtrack for CastleVania: Rondo of Blood was exceptional good for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and the level design for all nine stages were impressive.  The plot for Rondo of Blood takes place in the in later part of the 18th century where players are expected to navigate through nine different levels to defeat the likes of Dracula, Shaft and Death as Richard Belmont.


Throughout, the game players can collect all sorts of weapons including axes, daggers, holy water, crosses etc.  Even though, Castlevania: Rondo of Blood was originally released in Japan for the SNES it was later ported for the Nintendo Wii on the Virtual Console back in 2010.   As far as sales are concerned some people probably wonder how it would have done in America back in the early 90’s.  Super Castlevania IV which was released back in 1991 for the SNES had managed to sell over half a million units worldwide.  If Castlevaina: Rondo of Blood was released back in the early 90’s it would have been interesting to see how it would have done in sales in comparison to titles such as Super Castlevania IV or Symphony of the Night.
