The Castlevania series is the oldest existing video game franchise. In 1986, Castlevania’s first installment hit the Nintendo Entertainment System which spawned many tributes, sequels, and spinoffs. In 2021 the company released its latest franchise called Castlevania: Advanced Collection. The developers released almost three major pieces of DLC since the original release of Dead Cells and the three pieces continued the storyline of the game.

Whether DLC will manage to capture the feel of the classic games or not, still remains a question.
