Sega’s Vampire: Master Of Darkness Rises From The Grave, Sinks Teeth Into 3DS

Konami didn’t make a Castlevania title for Sega’s Master System or Game Gear, so Sega decided to create their own vampire hunting game. Vampire: Master of Darkness puts players in the shoes of a psychologist named Dr. Ferdinand Social who uses a Ouija board to track down Dracula. Right, so you have a knife, a pistol, and bombs (garlic bombs?) you can use to kill floating masks and eventually the head vampire.



According to PEGI, Vampire: Master of Darkness will be re-released on 3DS as a Virtual Console download. Defenders of Oasis, another Game Gear title, was confirmed for Europe by the rating board.

  • A psychologist vampire hunter? Well, I don’t remember taking any Vampire hunting classes during my university years :3

    In all seriousness, I am definitely going to check this one out :)

      I guess that’s what you miss out on if you don’t study in Europe :)

      •  But I did study in europe ;_; I’m guessing they decided to remove that class altogether, as it was prolly causing some unwanted casualties, ahah :D

  • Defenders of Oasis was the first RPG that held my attention. I owe my JRPG obsession to that game.
