Gambling Machines

More recently, Konami has turned to making a number of Pachislot and Pachinko games (not the same thing) based on their various properties. These are, eseentially, gambling machines where the players play for tokens they can turn in for prizes and such at the pachinko parlors. They're Japanese-exclusive and, by and large, have very little plot to them despite featuring Castlevania artwork and characters.

  • Pachislot Akumajo Dracula (2009 JPN, Arcade)
  • Pachislot Akumajo Dracula II (2010 JPN, Arcade)

Kid Dracula Series

Although not official entries in the Castlevania series, the Kid Dracula games acted as parodies to the main series, poking light at the conventions and formulas of the games while still delivering a fun, funny experience.
