Known in Japan as Akumajou Dracula X: Gekka no Yasoukyoku (Demon Castle Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight), this game takes place after the first Dracula X game (specifically, â€œDracula X: Rondo of Bloodâ€). You play as Alucard, a returning hero from the third installment of the series on the NES. Alucard is Draculaâ€™s son, who had gone into a deep sleep for many years until he was awakened by the return of Draculaâ€™s castle.
As Alucard, you have a large number of equipment to choose from (daggers, one-handed swords, two-handed swords, fist-type weapons, rods, as well as armor, shields, capes, helmets, accessories, and usable items). Many people will play through this game many times and still not see all of the items within. Thatâ€™s how many items there are!
Alucard has many techniques at his disposal. First, he has a large set of spells (about 10 or so) that he can perform by using his MP (one of the three main statistics, in addition to HP and Hearts). He can transform into a Wolf, Bat, and Mist (each of which has a few abilities of their own). He also gets familiars of varying types (demons, faeries, and even a sentient sword) to help fight his enemies.
