Castlevania (キャッスルヴァニア Kyassuruvania?), known as Akumajō Dracula (悪魔城ドラキュラ Akumajō Dorakyura?, lit. Devil's Castle
Dracula) in Japan, is a video game series created and developed by Konami, centered on the Belmonts, a clan of
vampire hunters, and their fight with Dracula.
The series debuted in Japan on September 26, 1986, with the release for the Family Computer Disk System (FDS), followed
by an alternate version for the MSX 2 platform on October 30. Although the MSX 2 port (localized in Europe and Brazil as
Vampire Killer) was released first outside of Japan, the series did not receive wide attention outside of Japan until
the FDS version was ported to cartridge format for the Nintendo Entertainment System and localized for North American
and European releases of Castlevania in 1987. The series soon became one of Konami's flagship series.
