Dracula Densetsu II
ドラキュラ伝説II
12 July 1991

 
 
After defeating Dracula 15 years ago in Dracula Densetsu (1989), Christopher is preparing himself for retirement. But Vlad is a man who holds a grudge: he has returned to Earth by using the powers of Christopher's weak-minded son Soleiyu. So it's a tired, ageing Christopher that must once again pick up his whip, and rescue his son from the grip of his old foe.
Dracula Densetsu II benefits from a mind-boggling overhaul over its predecessor: the gameplay is smoother and the level layouts are vastly improved. Sub-weapons make a welcome return (although there are only two) and the quest’s half-dozen stages are nicely sewn together by a password system.
Compared to this, the first Dracula Densetsu is an empty and half-hearted attempt at a handheld Dracula game... This one fills in all the cracks and ends up as one of the best Game Boy games of its generation - superior even to the third Game Boy game of the series
Akumajō Dracula - Shikkotaro Zensōkyoku (1997).
NB: Both Dracula Densetsu games were re-issued in limited colour, with special 'Super Game Boy' features (custom borders, enhanced colours) in the 'Konami GB Collection' Vols.1 and 3.
