Castlevania resurrection is a canceled Dreamcast title set in 1666 and would have Sonia Belmont and Victor Belmont meet via time travel. Far lost and seen as a holy grail for collectors and video game archaeologists, it has been known to a small fan base that it had been shown to the press, but nothing else. It has finally been found, and gameplay has even been posted online, which is quite remarkable considering how long it has been since it last saw the light of day.
The game is currently not online for everyone to play and experience at the moment, while while the owner has preserved the disc, they are apparently happy to show off the disc and the gameplay and do nothing else. Okay, but considering how fragile records are, it would be a shame if it was not backed up properly for preservation purposes.
The game’s story would have had Victory Belmont as a 19th century vampire hunter who had “left his lineage and left the area for fear of his fate as a vampire killer. Players would face a female vampire as the main opponent.” Why was the game never released? According to the artistic director of the title Greg Orduyan, Konami did not trust Dreamcast, which is strange logic considering that they could have released it on PS2 … but I’m going away.
In the demo, there are 5 environments and a boss battle that is in one stage of the game, and most areas do not connect with each other. You do not load, and everyone can be reached via the Start menu. It is an early beta and nowhere near being a finished product. Still, it’s definitely a cool game story that was supposed to be lost, and even if it’s not published, we at least know it still exists.
