Drawing inspiration from the past titles including the critically acclaimed Castlevania®: Symphony of the Night (PlayStation®, 1997), Castlevania®: Harmony of Dissonance (GameBoy® Advance, 2002) and Castlevania®: Aria of Sorrow (GameBoy® Advance, 2003), Koji Igarashi and the talented team at Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo have woven all of the classic platform-jumping, problem-solving and combat elements into Castlevania®: Lament of Innocence. Further enhancing the overall gaming experience is the highly stylized artwork of Ayami Kojima and the mesmerizing musical score composed by Michiru Yamane.

Building on a 17-year legacy of games, Castlevania®: Lament of Innocence takes players centuries into the past to reveal the origins of the Belmont family and Dracula. In the role of patriarch Leon Belmont, players will discover how the Belmont clan became vampire hunters - the foundation on which all other Castlevania® games are based.

Specifically crafted for the PlayStation®2, the game features impeccable controls and fluid camera angles that effectively keep pace with the exciting in-game action. Players will battle hundreds of enemies while exploring the expansive sanctuary of the undead. Whipping their way through the 500+ rooms, players will also collect relics and master powerful attacks in order to defeat the gruesome monsters.
