Journey back to 1792 and the Transylvanian countryside of Romania...

While the Japanese versions use the correct name "Rondo of Blood", the American localization somehow goes wrong.

Objective[edit]

The switch on the right and the ladder on the left.
This is a remake of the final stage of Rondo of Blood, where player, as Richter Belmont, fought with Dracula. The gameplay is vastly different as follows:
  • Richter has gained a lot of new moves. See the control page for more information.
  • The stage layout has been changed that, Richter will not fall off the bottom.
  • The entrance of the secret room has been changed that, it now requires hitting a hidden switch to release the ladder to the room. Inside the room are a few jars containing items of Alucard game, which cannot be carried over.
  • Dracula has both HP bars shown from the start of battle.
  • If Richter runs out of HP during Dracula battle, Maria Renard (young) will appear and aid him with power of her animal friends, making him invincible for the rest of battle. However, doing so will result in Alucard starting the actual game in worst status.
