              That’s pretty much the only reason why people hold the original dub in high regard.
              However, the new dub is quite dull so it doesn’t actually exceed the new one at all. It’s also missing the vocal song "I Am the Wind" from the credits. The new Marina mode is pretty fun.
              Don’t listen to anyone trying to convince you the Saturn version is superior because they’ve been brainwashed to think that Saturn is the king of 2D and all 2D games play the best on the Saturn. SOTN was made for the PS1 hardware first and they used a bunch of tricks and features to make it work there. The Saturn port is a hacked up job by another team that suffers from slowdown, longer load times, missing or inferior effects and is overall just a worse presentation version. You’ll get people claiming the new zone content is absolutely worth it, but then quickly discover it’s only a couple of items and some hallways, enemies and a boss fight that are of a lower quality than the rest of the game. Marina is also playable in this version, but she has a completely different combat focused playstyle when compared to her animal combat in Rondo and PSP SOTN. There was a rom hack released for the Saturn version that added some QoL improvements and used the RAM cart to improve loading times, but the improvements are so minimal that it’s not even worth bothering. The only major improvement is the pause screen is instant now, but that isn’t an advantage it has over any other version.

                PSP version lets you select japanese voices so you don’t need to deal with the bad dubs

                The original dub is objectively just entertaining. I think you’re confused and think people thought it was good at the time, no, everyone always liked it because it’s terrible. The new voice acting and script is just as bad, but without being interesting or entertaining.

                  there was nothing interesting or entertaining about the original, it is just cringe. the new dub/translation is also just as cringe, just doesn’t have such an acute case of engrish and actually reads like a native speaker translated it.

          PSP is shit because it uses the source code for JP v1.0 and is a horribly buggy mess. The PS1 (NTSC) and XBLA versions are both vastly superior.

      PS1 JP rom translated to english. None of the horrible original translation and voices, plus you get the kino jap voice acting as god intended.

      Ok, I didn’t play the original, so other than the OG dub, and "I am the Wind" I know little of it. With that said, the PsP versions doesn’t add much, it has an extra boss, and Maria as a playable character, dual audio, and yes, the new script and dub, that it isn’t bad, but a little boring. With that said, I don’t think anyone actually remembers anything of the original dub, after the Ritcher and Dracula exchange at the start.

          Can’t play as Maria in the PS1 version. Also, the sound quality is just worse on PSP in my opinion.

        Beautiful 2D visuals that are still some of the best in the business. A memorable soundtrack that enhances the atmosphere and sets the mood in every area. An impressive amount of enemies and bosses giving you a large variety of combat situations. Tons of secrets to find to scratch the exploration itch.

        If you like the genre, the first blind playthrough is always a blast to explore the castle, find secrets and experiment with weapons and such, all enhanced with art and music that still holds up. After that playthrough, and if you want more, is all about "breaking" the game, either trying for the most optimal run for speedrun of any kind, or just trying up weird playthroughs with different equipment.

        Again, is all about how much you like the genre, and SotN, even with some minor drawbacks like the item managment, is still a solid staple of the genre.

        For me the music alone is enough to justify the entire game. The way it sets up the mood for the game is almost nigh 10/10 perfect. The later installments in the series did do a good job with their own soundtracks but never in the same level as how SotN managed to do so. The orchestral tracks are the absolute tits. This one still manages to give me chills.

      ps1 on a crt. Disapoointing game btw, starts out fantastic then the director left the project and it falls apart. Soundtrack is the only consistently good thing about it.

      Avoid the saturn version like AIDS. Pic related.
