Castlevania: Order of Shadows is an original mobile phone game in the Castlevania series, developed and published by Konami. It was released on September 18, 2007.


Note: Order of Shadows is considered to be a side story to the official canon, and therefore, is not part of IGA's official chronology.[1]

The story takes place during the late 1600s. Desmond Belmont, heir to the legendary Vampire Killer whip, along with his two sisters, Zoe and Dolores, set off on a perilous journey to try to stop a mysterious cult known as The Order, which is planning to resurrect the evil Count Dracula.

Order of Shadows contains many platforming puzzles in the metroidvania style.

Castlevania: Order of Shadows features 2D whipping action similar to other metroidvania-styled games of the series, being a platform video game featuring role playing elements. The protagonist, Desmond Belmont, wields the legendary Vampire Killer whip as his main weapon, with other unlockable whips and sub-weapons becoming available to him throughout the course of game. He can also level-up by earning experience points. Several battles against classic monsters are also present, such as those with Medusa and Dracula.

  • Once normal mode is completed, "HARD MODE" and "CLASSIC MUSIC" become available in the selection screen.
    • CLASSIC MUSIC offers the possibility of changing the game's default soundtrack for other classic tunes from the Castlevania franchise.


Originally, the story was going to be about a character named Gryph LaRue and his family of wizards and witches, although it was eventually modified and the protagonists replaced by members of the Belmont Clan, which has always been portrayed as a family of warriors. After the rewriting, the story became more similar to the traditional stories of the Castlevania saga, and made the protagonist, Desmond Belmont, handle a whip instead of an axe or a sword.
