Random Encounter 228 Castlevania Advance Collection

On this episode of Random Encounter, our panel descends deep into Dracula’s Castle to deliver their thoughts about the recent Castlevania Advance Collection.

Between 2001 and 2003, Konami released three landmark Castlevania titles for the Game Boy Advance (Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, and Aria of Sorrow). These games revived the Symphony of the Night-style of 2D-exploration gameplay and cemented the term “Metroidvania” in our minds forever. In this episode, Jono and Mike get a chance to dive back into some fond GBA memories while Audra and Niki get to experience the Castlevania universe for the first time! Plus, we finally get a definitive answer to the question, is the double jump the best upgrade in video game history?

Featuring: Jono Logan, Audra Bowling, Niki Fakhoori, Mike Sollosi; Edited by Jono Logan
