Notes
The name Castlevania was used as part of the title in Japan, instead of the usual Akumajo Dracula.
The last time this happened was in 2003 for Castlevania: Lament of Innocence.

The Castlevania logo has been slightly changed for this game. The most notable is the point that sticks out on the left of some of the letters.

The standard version of the game is 1 disc on the PS3, however it is 2 discs on the Xbox 360.

Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 offer a standard and limited edition. The limited edition has a different cover for the case, and contains an artbook and the soundtrack for the game.

The Australian release date was pushed back twice, the second date change was due to a shipping error.
