Considering it is the 35th anniversary of the Castlevania franchise...what better way to celebrate than to do a massive retrospective on every mainline game ever released from Konami. From the NES 8-bit originals to the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64, PS2, Xbox and beyond! Because Castlevania is retro gaming royalty and it's only fitting we pay it some tribute!
But what about Castlevania: The Arcade? The Konami arcade exclusive arcade game that is rarer than gold? Well...why not!

Castlevania: The Arcade is a massive arcade cabinet released in 2009 by Konami that is near to impossible to find. I have a PC PCB that can run it but I've never found the image...until now! And wow...it just runs on Windows 10 with a few tricks. Video Game Preservation for the win! But we need your help as controls are a bit tricky!
But if you ever wondered what it would be like to mix Castlevania from Konami with The House of the Dead from Sega...now you will see or you could just go play Vampire Night from Sega on PS2...kinda the same concept except earlier lol
But as far as rare video games are concerned it doesnt get much rarer or more obscure than this! Video game history and video game preservation all rolled up into one delicious Dracula sized bite!
