Castlevania: Resurrection prototype for Dreamcast unearthed after 22 years

Back when the SEGA Dreamcast came out, there were a lot of games that never got actual releases. Over the years some of these games leaked and fans have been able to experience “what could have been”. Now, 22 years after its initial reveal, Castlevania: Resurrection for Dreamcast has finally had its prototype leaked to a French Dreamcast preservation website.

According to an old IGN article, the ‘first’ Dreamcast installment of Castlevania series was placed on indefinite hold after the company said they lacked resources to develop the title. The article even ends suggesting it would be the last time we’d hear about the title. Ha! Wrong! Here we are today.

Castlevania: Resurrection was first teased way back in November 1998, the game was suppose to be a reboot for the franchise and star Sonia Belmont and a new character called Victor Belmont.
