Summary

A revolutionary breed of Castlevania is coming to Nintendo's newest handheld console, the DS. Dawn of Sorrow is a follow-up to fantastic Aria of Sorrow and even boasts the same Director, so you know it's going to be ace.

Even if you've never played a Castlevania game before, Dawn of Sorrow is intriguing because of so many innovative gameplay features using Nintendo DS.

Soma Cruz is once again called to act, events occurring only a few years after those in Aria of Sorrow. Once again the timelessly compelling shadow of Dracula spurs the story on, with Soma called to infiltrate an enemy HQ fashioned after Dracula's ancient castle - complete with monstrous creatures!

Dawn of Sorrow takes full advantage of the Nintendo DS Dual Screen and Touch Screen technology, in addition its wireless connectivity. The Dual Screen combined with the Touch Screen function allows a new 'Magic Seal' system within the game - whereby magic symbols drawn directly onto the lower screen unlock enchanted portals on the top screen.

Another key gameplay feature is collecting the souls of enemies to gain powerful attacks and skills. By using the wireless connectivity of Nintendo DS, you can exchange and/or trade acquired souls with friends.

In addition to the many gameplay innovations, Dawn of Sorrow has a fabulous musical score, and ornate visual style complete with dazzling special effects. Get ready to sink your teeth into a potential Castlevania classic.

Why is 340k considered bad sales for a DS game? This game was probably in the black after the first 100k units.

I'm on the same level as TomHoang here. Exactly why does Castlevania sell so badly. I can't get enough of Castlevania! This game was the first i got in the series, and now i cant stop buying them, i even hunt down the retro CV's to get what i missed out on. It has such a great system, why is it not more popular?
