Castlevania: Symphony of the Night - NES Edition 2 by Kradakor Castlevania: Symphony of the Night - NES Edition 2 by Kradakor
Second part of my Castlevania SotN demake set.


While I was working on it, I figured that many aspects of the art would be probably impossible on a real NES, like the "loading room", which uses a shiton of different tiles to form the angels, which (I've not counted) probably surpass the 256 tile limit of a normal NES game. I do not care for this, however, as my intention is more to "imitate" the visual style than to obsessively restrict it to hardware limitations. Castlevania III is beautiful, but Symphony of the Night is even more beautiful and detailed. Going for CVIII's graphical system would not be enough.

Even so, I tried being extra careful with palettes and tile sizes, including sprites. This complete set has 20 colors, but each individual image has less than 12. The tiles are ALL 8x8. Of course, the transparency won't allow you to count pixels on some of them.

And that's it. I plan on doing one last set with more iconic moments from Symphony of the Night, including some enemies (maybe one or two bosses) soon.

A cookie for the first one to figure out where are the save and loading rooms located xD

PS: Before anyone points out, Alucard's cape is intended to be a separate sprite, Mega Man style, that can change colors depending on what cape he's wearing.

Let's hope it will submit it to RomHacking. But it's still in development or beta but we do not know yet.

The creators of Cadence of agony could learn a few things from these screenshots?

Funny thing is, this could have been legit. There were NES games through 1994, with one unlicensed title in 1995. However, with that time frame, it would more likely have been a SNES, Genesis/Mega Drive (CD), or PC-Engine/TG16 CD game. Of course, we know it ended up being a PlayStation/Saturn game.

These are awesome. I would have loved to have seen this on the original NES. What do you mean when you say a cookie to the first one to know where the save and load rooms are? Haha. Do you mean in this image? Because that is easy.  The upper right. Haha

Haha, thanks man.

The think is that the Save Room and Loading Room are located somewhere on the original SotN map. Can you figure where they are?

Yes, I know that. That's why I selected two special rooms whose positions are unique on the map. On this picture, I made a little Super Metroid-like "preview map" on the top right corner. From there you can actually see where they are.

I see. :D Well the save room is from the Outer Wall. You have me stumped with the load screen though. I have played through that game MANY times and I can't remember where that is from. Haha.
