Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

astlevania: Harmony of Dissonance (HoD) is the second Castlevania game for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance handheld. It was first released in Japan on June 6, 2002 under the title Castlevania: Hakuya no Concerto (translated as Castlevania: Concerto of Midnight Sun) and is the first game of the "Akumajo Dracula" series in Japan to adopt the overseas "Castlevania" title. That title would be abandoned roughly three years later and the series would once again take on the Akumajo Dracula title in Japan.

Harmony of Dissonance was scheduled for a June '02 release date for North America as well, but at the last minute, it was pushed back to September 16, 2002, and Europe saw an official release about a month later on October 11, 2002.

Not wanting to have overstock, Konami didn't keep this game in print for very long. HoD quickly sold out in many places and finding a new or even used copy of it became a challenge for many gamers. Only after a relatively short time of its release, sealed, mint condition copies would commonly sell for prices ranging around $80.00 on ebay. Realizing that there was still a significant demand for Harmony of Dissonance, Konami re-released it along with Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow on one Gameboy Advance cartridge on January 10, 2006 as Castlevania Double Pack.

There is a rumor on the internet that this game was originally being developed for the Sony Playstation 2, but it has never been confirmed.
