Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
ortrait of Ruin (PoR) is the second Castlevania video game for Nintendo's DS handheld gaming system. It was released in Japan on November 16th, 2006, under the title Akumajo Dracula: Gallery of Labyrinth. The game was available on North American shores on December 5th, 2006.
