I've been playing the PSP version of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the unlockable game on Castlevania Chronicles. It's fun, because there are some subtle differences from both the PS1 English version, and the PS1 Japanese version I've played before. I'm balanced between liking both english dubs (the first one for the PS1 was admittedly a bit over-acted, but I like it anyway) and of course, I adore the Japanese vocal track (Ryotaro Okiayu is the best Alucard). They've added Fairy (so there are now two -- Faerie and Fairy) and N. Demon (for Nose Demon) they were in one of the Japanese versions of Castlevania. There are a few other changes to more or less make this version the best intersection of the elements of all the versions from the different game platforms. Castlevania:SOTN is one of my all-time favorite games, and I'm quite pleased with this PSP version.

The second Fairy has this nifty thing she does once she's high enough level -- there are a few places in the game where Alucard can interact with the background elements enough to sit down in a chair. If he sits for long enough, he nods off (little Z's stream from his head -- it's terribly cute!) Also, if he stops for long enough, either of the fairies will alight on his shoulder (it's funny when you move again, as the fairy in question will scream and fall toward the ground before catching herself and starting to fly again). So, if Alucard sits in a chair long enough to fall asleep, and he has Fairy at a high enough level, she sings to him. This happened in one of the Japanese versions of the game.
