Since Simon and Richter Belmont are fighters in the game, it was clever to add Dracula to the bosses. He’s in both World of Light and Classic Mode.
I thought it was funny Luigi fights Dracula in classic mode. Nintendo teased the Castlevania crew arriving before the game come out by having Luigi get slain by the Grim Reaper in Dracula’s Castle. And they sure didn’t forget.
Any fighter can fight him in World of Light. He mainly fights like he does in the games, the one he reminds me the most though is the start of Symphony of the Night where you’re still Richter Belmont during the flashback scene of Rondo of Blood.
While he’s a bit awkward to hit at times, and he transforms into his more demon state, I liked battling him. A very good tribute to the Castlevania games.
