In addition to refined graphics, the changes at first sight to be seen. If you're one of those 15 (calculated on the editorial "Death Star!) Readers who are still unfamiliar with Chi no Rondo,« Chronicles "will turn you into a kind of metaigru. At every level, every step you will subconsciously remember: "And here it was possible to break through the wall ... Oh, and the truth may be. But in this candlestick was hidden key ... Oh, wow! But this room I do not remember ... Was she or was not? "Finally, after reaching the fourth level, you will discover the original Dracula X (now it is officially called the Rondo of Blood) and refresh your memories ... unless, of course, not zavyaznete in Symphony of the Night, which, ironically, hidden away a little earlier, at 3 '. That's "three-dot" is not a typo. It's about a secret alternative level, which can be accessed from the second (or with a "second-stroke").
Symphony of the Night hidden in level 3 '(alternative third). To get there the easiest way to level 2 ', and to get to 2' to the first level does not go into the door right after you go down the stairs and break the wall of the left, then drop down and fight with the serpent.
To make a 2 'to get to 3', get to the second segment level (where you will begin to attack the gargoyle), find the first piece of the bridge fail, get up on it and wait until it collapses. Once you fail down, you will just have to sit in a boat that takes you straight course on "third replacement" level (watch out for people, fish!).
3 'Go, "where he goes, until you find the room in which the right closes the bone snake, and left hanging green" bulb. " Hit it (eg, ax, if you're playing for Richter), and it goes down. Climb up and proprygayte way to the right. In the end you will have to wait for a white tombstone. Break it and inside find Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Start the game will be a point «Original Game» main menu.
Rondo of Blood zanykana on the fourth level. From the column of six fire-breathing skulls go right to the wall. Hitting the bottom of the wall, you'll find a bomb, attack her, to set fire to the fuse and blow up the wall. Go further right until you see two riding up and down beams with spikes. Using them as stairs, climb up, then jump again to the right. There you will find a candle, which is hidden Rondo of Blood, to congratulate you.
The second girl, Tera, hidden at the level of 3 '. As soon as you see the first door on the level, do not enter into it, and break through the wall below it (must start at the top). This opens a passage to a secret location, where you can go down the stairs to the room of Tera - and save her.
The third hostage, Iris, located on level 4. " To get there with our favorite 3 ', surmount all Spiked balls, riding up and down on the chains. One of them breaks through a hole in the ground - jump back, but gently (the ball still lying at the bottom). Defeat the boss Dogether, and you get to the fourth level of the alternative.
Go right until you are blue and yellow frog. To the right you will find few statues of her girlfriends and one free pedestal. Lure wah in there, and left open the passage to the bottom "floor". Walk further left and down the stairs. You will find yourself in an ice cave. Walk to the end of the right and find Iris.
Finally, the fourth girl, girlfriend Annette Richter, sharpened at the seventh level. It can help out only if you have already saved Theroux and Iris. To do this: in the first part of the tower (with skeletons) to destroy the bone barrier and press for it (standing on it). If you do everything right, from top to drop a heart. Further, at the very top of this segment is a door over which hangs a big gear. Beat on the gear until the door opens. Behind the door sits a bird with a key. Kill the bird, take away the key. Go to the next section (with the harpies), go down, then head right. Seeing the locked door, do not open it. Initially, climb up and press a second button for ice. After that, the bottom will pass to the camera Annette. "Attack" key prison doors, you go see the movie, and continue to pass the level as usual. Now you can battle with the ghost of Shaft, the latest incarnation of Dracula.
Much more playable addition - mode Boss Rush, dismantling the chain of bosses, not interrupted by wandering through the castle. As in Portrait of Ruin (PoR), you can relegate the villains together, with no restrictions on duplication - can be two different characters, or two identical. Alas, you can choose only from Richter and Mary (Oh, and in fact in PoR had more than six characters ...)
The main question here is, of course, "Why?". Why bother to do this hocus-pocus, peremodelirovat in pseudo-3D location of the original locations Chi no Rondo with minimal differences, adding poshlenkie bonus plastinochki and human-butterfly as a brand new boss? For "training" gamers who to get stale, but still tasty candy "Symphony", will be forced proprygat on his hind legs at least three levels of the main game - and there, you see, and draw? But lock-in that - is it really in the plans of Konami quasi-3D-remakes of older "Kaslvany" for the PSP, and we will still see carved into landfills, and Simon, and Trevor, and Morris, Sr.?
Or is this event like the recent April Fool's trailer for a nonexistent film Legend of Zelda? "Look, as we can!" Yes, Konami, we believe in you, you can. Can make new good "Kaslvaniyu" - though the two-dimensional, though the three-dimensional. But while you "chant behinds, your creativity wants to put on a par with the works of more talented writers from the site retroremakes.com. Only they, unlike you, the players do not take money.
