The Final Chapter in the 8 bit era
This is the last game made for the NES/Famicom, the best yet the hardest, play with deferent characters and what makes this version unique is it’s audio rom the VRC 6 sound chip.

The Last and The Best
Akumajo Densetsu (A.K.A Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse for the NES) is the last game in the castlevania series released for the Famicom (or the NES), the deference between the Famicom version & the NES version is that the Famicom version comes in a 3 MB cartridge with a special sound chip called VRC6, it gives extra sound waves to the game that makes it sounds more like a 16 bit game, also some graphics improvements are there as well, this a great game to collect but it’s difficulty is rather high.

the game of the 21 century
i own this game for the famicom and i ,m very setisfied with this game.
to start, the music is astounding compared with the us version this game has more sphearfull and warmer lively songs, it,s like listening to real music songs,
for example in the us version the ending song feels like that you have won the war but lost all your friends will in the jap version the song give,s you the feeling that you have won the war and that peace will return.
also the graphics are a bit better like the scrolling cloutch and the simble in the cross also some enemy,s looks greater too.
that,s all thanks the builtin vrc6 chip wich is able to generate 3 more soundchannels and better graphics.
it even can compeat with 16 bit games,and it,s steel a great game it,s the game of the 21 century!!!!
