Final Stage: Bloodlines (Final Stage: 血の輪廻 Rondo of Blood?) is the prologue to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and it represents the final stage of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. The player is Richter Belmont in this stage and he faces off against Dracula.


Even though the structure of the level remains almost identical to that in Rondo of Blood, many details have been added to take advantage of the technical capabilities of the PlayStation:

  • The presence of a guardrail along the final staircase.
  • The clock tower can be seen in the background scenery.
  • The invisible staircases leading to the bonus room have been replaced by an escalator that will have to be activated by pressing a hidden switch at the entrance to the pinnacle. In addition, the bonus room no longer contains gold bags, but objects that can only be used when playing as Alucard.
  • The room before the throne room is decorated with a large table, several windows and a chandelier.
