The legendary Castlevania franchise returns to the next generation of handheld gaming systems.Set in the year 2036, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow picks up one year after the events of Aria of Sorrow (GBA). A mysterious cult, unhappy that Soma Cruz failed to fulfill his destiny and become the reincarnation of Dracula, seeks to sacrifice our hero so it can bring about a new dark lord. Rather than wait for his enemies to come to him, Soma decides to go on the offensive, which leads him to an all-too-familiar castle.Following in the footsteps of recent Castlevania games, the series' DS debut features RPG elements and a labyrinthine map rife with secrets and special weapons. Aria of Sorrow's heralded Tactical Soul system returns as well, allowing you to learn new powers and abilities by capturing the souls of your vanquished foes.As you control the action on the bottom screen, the top screen will display enemy and player information or a map that's updated in real time as you explore the castle. While that may not sound like the most glamorous use of the dual screens, Castlevania disciples can attest to how valuable a persistent view of the map will be when you're trying to find a secret room or remember the location of that previously unreachable platform.The touch screen also plays a crucial role in smashing crystal blocks that stand in your path, and in drawing Magic Seals to banish bosses. Konami has also revealed that certain Tactical Souls will enable you to perform location-based attacks via the stylus. In some rooms, you'll even be able to use the stylus to warp to different locations in the castle.

An Excellent Follow Up to Aria of Sorrow
Arguably the best Castlevania game for the DS. If you liked Aria of Sorrow you won't be disappointed with Dawn, as they share similar gameplay and mechanics, as well as the protagonist Soma Cruz. BTW, as of august 2018 Play Asia was shipping the black label edition (not the Konami Best reprint with horrible cover art), perfect for collectionists.
