According to the description on the DLC’s website on Steam, “The inspiration behind it all returns to its 2D action roots.”
In this unprecedented partnership, Castlevania’s unforgettable characters and gothic backdrop come face to face with the lightning-fast action of the award-winning roguelike Dead Cells.
Richter Belmont and Alucard’s appearance may be intended to excite people about the upcoming Castlevania: Nocturne series on Netflix, which will center on Richter. Both of these characters have significant roles in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, which is often considered the most popular game in the series.
