See, this is why server preservation is important.
This game's online features are no longer supported.
While this game's online features were once accessible, they are (as of January 17, 2023) no longer officially supported and online-exclusive features may be documented as now-unseen content.

A first-person on-rails Castlevania game using motion controls to attack like a whip.

This game never left Japan, outside of a planned 2009 release in Europe and location tests the previous year.

Inaccessible e-Amusement Pass Features

Due to the closure of the e-Amusement Pass service in 2023, several features are now officially inaccessible.

  • You cannot unlock the third character (Little Witch) anymore. This was done by finishing the game with any character and saving your progress into the e-Amusement Pass.
    • By extension, the Little Witch mode where killing some ducks reward you with a joke ending parodying the Tokimeki Memorial ending is no longer accessible.
  • The stage select after going through the game once is no longer available.

Internal Configuration File

The game includes an internal configuration file called settings.csv. Changing the useSecretChara and freeStageSelect settings to "TRUE" will result in the Little Witch and stage select being unlocked by default.

Additionally, changing the destArea setting to "UA" will set the language to English. This will come up with the usual title screen change:
