The lights are on
Surprise! People are still making crazy things in Minecraft. This time it's a recreation of Konami's classic vampire slaying side-scroller, Castlevania.
The world took its creator, Nick "Nario" Hagman, over 100 hours to complete, over the course of 37 days. Hagman says no mods were used, and that he placed every block in the level by hand. Hagman then did a playthrough of the world with his friend Divinebeing recording it from an authentic side-scrolling perspective. As you can see in the extended video below, the results are impressive.
Head to Hagman's Youtube page to download the world for yourself, along with a custom Simon Belmont skin. If you're looking for more Castlevania-related reading material, check out Tim's ranking of his favorite Castlevania games.
