Konami put one of most well-known games in their history, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, on Google Play and App Store without much pomp or a huge marketing campaign.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of the games that propelled Konami to the top of the gaming world in the latter part of the 1990s as the company kept shelling out successful titles, one after another.

Unlike some of those other PlayStation era titles, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was not initially an epic success in Europe and North America at launch but it gained popularity later on. 

It is also now available on iOS and Android to the fans who would like to revisit the adventures of Dracula's own son, Alucard as he wades through the castle due to a severe lack of Belmonts in the area.

Both the Google Play and App Store versions cost $3 which is not really a high price to pay for classic, especially if one hasn't experienced it before. Even if they did, we are sure nostalgia will do its thing.

The mobile port also includes support for game controllers, in case you carry one around for the purposes of enjoying a proper metroidvania as it was, more than 20 years ago.

It also has a Continue feature which is not something that was present before but should make the game easier overall, since dying will not be as much of a problem as it used to be.
