Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles Unlockables & Cheat Codes


Unlock Symphony of the Night
In Stage 2, while the minotaur is chasing Richter, immediately fall into the first hole in the ground, where you will be taken into the sewers. Play the level out normally and defeat the boss. Afterward, you will be taken to Stage 3' (the second Stage 3).

In Stage 3', whenever the path branches, taken the upper route. Make sure you obtain the Axe Sub-Weapon sometime during the stage. Eventually, you will meet a skeletal snake that is attached to a wall. Nearby is a vine-like cage, use the axe to cut it. It now serves as a platform for Richter to jump to the upper ledges. Continue along the upper ledges until you see a breakable tombstone. Inside is the item that unlocks Symphony of the Night. Return to the main menu to play it.


Unlock original version of Rondo of Blood
On your way through the end of Stage 4 you will find 6 skulls that spit fire stacked on top of each other. Just past them is a platform that moves like an inverted pendulum going left and right. Just opposite of it is a spiked ball. Get on the platform and jump over the spiked ball landing on the ground against the wall. Break the lower part of the wall to find a bomb. Hit the bomb to igite it, and the wall will come falling down.

Walk forward a bit and you will find 2 spiked platforms that try to crush you. Get on the right platform and as it's going up jump off of it and land on the upper level. Stay on top avoiding the axes and the yellow eye. At the very end of that platform is a candle, hit it and inside will be some classic gaming goodness.
