Logo of the Castlevania series

Castlevania is a video game series created and developed by Konami. The series debuted in Japan on September 26, 1986 with Akumajō Dracula (悪魔城ドラキュラ Akumajō Dorakyura?, lit. "Devil's Castle Dracula"), which was later released as Castlevania in the United States (May 1, 1987) and PAL (December 19, 1988). The series is one of Konami's most celebrated franchises, appearing on several best-of lists.[1] The games take place in their fictional universe, which centers around the Belmont clan and their fight against the vampire Dracula.

Castlevania titles have been released on numerous different video game consoles, handheld game consoles, and personal computer platforms, several of which have been re-released on multiple platforms and included as part of compilation packages. The series' characters have appeared in several other Konami games. There have been also numerous separately released music albums, initially by King Records, then primarily by Konami.
