Trivia

  • The title of Lecarde Chronicles was originally planned to be "Castlevania: The Moonlight Opera " though it was switched to the current title before it was released. The temporary title is still present in Lecarde Chronicles' graphic test launcher. Combined with the stage title of Epilogue Stage 1 (Moonlight Hall) - "Moon Fight", and Epilogue Stage 2 (Katharina Quarters) - "Devil's Opera", It strongly suggests that this theory was true.
  • The drastic change to Efrain's dressing fashion and coloring choice in between Lecarde Chronicles and Lecarde Chronicles 2 is yet to be explained.
