I remember when I first got the PS1 version of SotN. I could only get one game at the time, and I had to choose between which new Mega Man game was out at the time… or this. I probably chose SotN because I had seen it more in magazines, and it seemed more… unique, perhaps? I already had an MM game, but I never had any Castlevania games.
It soon became one of my favorite games of all time.
In November 2016, I took the opportunity to experience the Xbox 360 version.
