Simon Belmont comes from a very long line of Vampire slayers. His name is synonimous with the destruction of unholy minions. His family's fame became his fame, and when Count Dracula emmerged, Simon took up the fight.
He journeyed to the home of the legendary Count, and was immediately confronted with the evils of this once grand castle. It seemed as though the count himself was raising the dead, and sending them to stop Simon.
Dracula stopped at nothing to rid himself of Simon. Calling upon the greatest evils there were, his minions Death, Frankenstien, Medusa, and his mummy's were placed to prevent Simon from finding him.
Simon conquered these unholy demons, and finally met the one whom the people dreaded. They fought a epic battle, in which Simon came out the victor.
Before Dracula fell, he placed a curse on Belmont. But that is another story....
This time around, Simon is not anywhere near as controller friendly as the console games, with little in the way of variation for his control scheme. Simon moves at a sluggish pace, which is slowed even more going up stairs. That said, the speed which his three weapons attack is favorable. Whipping while climbing is a very bad joke considering the conflicting controls. Simon can jump pretty well, but the jumps can't be controlled hardly at all. Most of the jumps will seem more like wild flails throught the air. With large groups of enemies, Simon has little chance of coming out without damage done. Even with the hard hitting Mystic Weapons.
Serena, Simon Belmont's lovely bride, was kidnapped by the Count, and taken to his castle. Simon has now set out to reclaim his bride from the forces of evil. He knows of the stories of Leon, and the loss of his bride centuries before. He will not allow history to repeat itself with Serena. His determination will hopefully save the day.
