Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (often referred to simply as Dracula's Curse and called Demon Castle Legends in Japan), was the third Castlevania game released by Konami for the Nintendo Entertainment System. While the previous game was radically different than the first game, this one was very much like the original.

The game stars Trevor Belmont and chronologically is the first game after Lament of Innocence. Trevor will be accompanied by Alcuard, the son of Dracula, Sypha Belnades, a witch captured by Dracula, and Grant DaNasty, ghost of a pirate killed by Dracula. The gameplay is significantly different than the original as there are multiple paths to get from the start to Dracula's castle. The routes vary significantly in difficulty, allowing the player to choose how hard the game is as they play.
