Sega Mega Drive - Akumajou Dracula - Vampire Killer (Japan)-klopjero View File Sega Mega Drive - Akumajou Dracula - Vampire Killer (Japan)-klopjero Castlevania: Bloodlines, known as Vampire Killer[a] in Japan and as Castlevania: The New Generation in PAL regions, is a platform game developed and published by Konami for the Sega Genesis, released worldwide in March 1994. It was the only Castlevania video game released on the Genesis. The game's storyline concerns a legendary vampire named Elizabeth Bartley who is Dracula's niece, suddenly appearing in the 20th century. Plotting a sacrificial war in order to bring her uncle back to life, she orchestrates the beginning of World War I. Quincy Morris' son, John, and his best friend Eric Lecarde, vow to take up the fight against evil. Together they manage to prevent Dracula's full resurrection. Unlike most Castlevania games, Bloodlines was the first game in the series that does not take place exclusively in Dracula's castle, with most levels taking place throughout Europe. Regional Differences Title Screen Japan US Europe The Japanese title, strangely, is not some variant on Akumajou Dracula but instead simply Vampire Killer. The censorship of blood in the European version extended to the title, and not only graphically, as the game is called Castlevania: The New Generation. Characters Japan US/Europe Eric Lecarde's face was significantly less masculine looking in the Japanese version's introduction and Expert ending. US/Europe Japan John Morris is called Johnny Morris in the Japanese version. Passwords The Japanese version handles passwords differently - instead of showing passwords in between levels, in the Japanese version passwords are shown after the End option is chosen on the game over screen. Blood Blood has been removed from the European version in various ways: US/Japan Europe The dead zombie outside of Castle Dracula, which some crows are feeding on, was removed in the European version. US/Japan Europe The zombies were changed from pink with red blood to a greenish blue with green blood in the European version. US/Japan Europe Hung corpses and blood dripping from the platforms of Stage 1 and Stage 6-2 were removed entirely in the European version as well. US/Japan Europe Due to the aforementioned objection to blood itself (again!), the blood fountain in Stage 5-1 was changed to a boring regular fountain when walking past it. The Blood Skeleton surprisingly survived the censorship. US/Japan Europe Eric no longer get impaled when he dies in the European version.
