Video: Castlevania Level 1 Remade In Unreal Engine 4

The original Castlevania title, that was released on the NES back in 1986, has been re-imagined by a fan using Unreal Engine 4.

Dejawolfs has re-created the first level of the game, taking us through Dracula’s castle, and it’s certainly impressive. You can check it out below:

Hopefully the clip of Dejawolfs’ work will stick around, and won’t be taken down by Nintendo or Konami.

    1. Yea, I would too if it was well made. This kind of looks like shit, but the concept is solid. I always wondered why nobody made a castlevania style side scroller with up to date graphics. I could imagine a true Symphony of the Night sequel with modern graphics, true rpg character progression, and level design. You could even make it like its one connected world like Simons Quest. Maybe even throw in a Divinty Original Sin style inventory system.

      1. Yeah that would be incredible. There is still a lot to do with side scrollers and this had one of the better backdrops of any game series. At this point, as those games are so old, melding many of the best parts of the games to in a sense “reboot” the series would be a welcomed idea. I imagine it will happen at some point. This person’s creation here is rough, but it is just so advanced compared to the original and has the nostalgic quality, it is certainly cool.


  1. Castlevania is a franchise I really wish would return to Nintendo systems.

    After playing Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclesia, it’s become more of my favorite 3rd-party franchises. It would make a great addition for the NX, but alas, it’s Konami we’re talking about.

    1. The only way to get castlevania back is if Konami just straight up fails as a company and has to sell it’s IP off… So here’s to Konami failing, I’ll do everything in my power to help make it happen.


    2. Same here. These games are actually among my favourite games ever. The DS ones are great indeed. Try getting Dawn of Sorrow as well if you can. It’s my favourite of the DS ones.


  2. This looks great indeed. Much better than the fanmade Unreal 4 interpretations of Mario and Zelda. Those looked too generic in my book. This one I would probably purchase if possible. On the other hand these videos also show me that graphics are indeed overrated. Good design is just good design. The original Castlevanias have so much more charm, personality and style than this. Timeless design really. Still, impressive job on display here. Kudos to the creator.


  3. These kind of games and Mega Man, Street Fighter, amazing RPG’s and so on, together with there own IP’s made Nintendo the best console back in the days.

    I wish they made castlevania on the lvl that God of War is on and possibly Mega Man aswell. Lord of shadows is ok but nowhere near as good as a God of War game, wich this franchise deserves if you ask me.
