Forget about killing Dracula, because you yourself now is a candidate of host of Dracula's reincarnation. Use the bestowed Power of Dominance inside you to fight againts this fate!

I still remember the first time I played this game on my old Java mobile phone. There are some minor differences between the mobile phone and GameBoy Advance version, like mobile version doesn't have character dialogues and Soma movement is more stiff. And, there is no Julius mode in mobile phone version.

Castlevania Aria of Sorrow GBA is the real RPG game. Dozens of Weapons, armors, items, and skills, secrets, are what will make every RPG lovers also love this game. The best feature for me is the so called called 'Tactical Soul System'. Every monster has it's skill, and the skills can be acquired to be used. Though it's not easy to acquire monster skills, as higher skill has fewer odds we can get it.

This game also has multiple endings we can achieve based on how our journey. To be honest, I even cannot figure out how to get the true ending if it was not because Google :D .
