They have it listed here: https://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=18699

It looks like 1 registered member of that site owns one.

Never seen one out in the wild myself. Dave and Busters, local arcade bars, casino arcades...nothing. Kinda surprised, because it totally sounds like the kind of game D&B would have. But then again, I'm assuming they didn't produce very many at all.

Could have been and in-the-moment thing. If it's means nothing to you now, you could always sell it and recup your loss.

Unfortunately all my pachinkos died on me  :( they are just glorified paper weights now, next to my 5 ft tall Gabriel Belmont statue. I dunno why i even bought that thing

But the game is 2 players isn’t it? From the few videos I seen on youtube it looked kinda fun. It’s an entirely different experience than any other castlevania game. How far did you get? Were the bosses challenging? Familiar stage progression?

I don’t think it would’ve sold well on the Wii. The PS3, perhaps, but they chose not to port it. And it will probably never be. I can’t even perceive how that game can even be ported in this day & age. It might be forever lost  ???

I tracked it down when I was in Japan two years ago. It wasn't as easy as you might think. I got the impression it wasn't really popular because nobody seemed to paid any attention to it except me. It's a lot of fun but once you play it, you definitely understand IGA's comment about not wanting to do a traditional CV for the Wii because he was afraid people's hands will get tired. I had some trouble with dodging attacks but I'm not sure it that was my fault or because my swings didn't properly register.

Also, Crisis, surely you can fit an The Arcade cabinet next to all your pachinko ones?

I think they ought to port lots of the arcade cabinets with unusual shapes to Virtual Reality.

I loved the idea but I didnt really feel the design, looks way too big for my taste and, what's worse, an absolute pain to handle.

If they wanted to, Konami could've done a Wii port around the time it came out. "Such a rare opportunity. Squandered.", as Zead said.

Has anyone here been lucky enough to play this thing. Since arcades are a relic of the 90’s/2000’s, you’d be lucky to find one these days. In Japan I’m sure they’re everywhere. Here in NY we have a place called Dave n Busters, a restaurant/bar/arcade but I have never seen this cabinet.

Always wanted to play it. One of the few Castlevanias that have eluded me (and I’m assuming 90% of the fanbase)

It was a weird but unique project. It was never ported, was limited to a select few countries, consider yourself lucky to have experienced it. I can’t say if it sucked or it was awesome because I have no idea.

I guess this could be considered one of the rarest CV games, since it’s literally not playable in any format aside from the arcade cabinet it was designed for. Even the long-lost Castlevania Resurrection was able to get into our hands. But what are the chances of this EVER being playable? I wanna say never say never, but… this is an entire beast altogether and a gargantuan task that might not ever be seen again

When the next iteration of the Netflix show comes out, and Symphony gets another re-re-re-release, then Castlevania discussion will revive once again.

Below is a video playthrough of Wicked Borgo Ruins - as a reminder, every level in the game will have a "Wicked" variant, which can be unlocked by obtaining an S-Rank in the base level. This playthrough is for the Wicked version of the first level of the game, Borgo Ruins:
