There will always need to be a balance in some form or another in whatever games that are made. Otherwise they'd be not very playable and not fun at all.

It's likely that if the N64 games showed up, it would be via Nintendo Switch Online... With a lot of porting tweaks provided by Nintendo, as they load their games with tweaks to work better (most of the time).

So I was torturing myself; Level 1 cap + Hard mode on clean new game, no consumable item/weapon synths/chaos ring usage. Oh my gosh the Menace was so bad; the black mouth things were everywhere and always bit me into pieces. I kinda regret my decision. The added pickups in DE+ DM version didn't really help against it. I can sense why the unedited DoS was often panned as the inferior one in the 3 DSVania games. Perfectly countering the black mouth things relies too much on the high DPS (damage per second) options and chaos ring, which is a thing I'm not quite happy about it.

Version 2.3 has Magical Ticket imported! This changed a lot of things, this time the all 3 DSVanias are officially in the same stand point. Not only Speedruns would benifit greatly from its inclusion, but casual plays also did. It was too good... The repetitive walking when you want to go back to warp points from far away, now became history, especially in soul farming.

This issue with this is Konami was very much in a "forget everything you know about Castlevania" with a scorched earth mindset to the older games in favor of the reboot. Remember how people were drooling at the idea of IGA making a 3DS game in the rebooted continuity and then all we got was one of the worst 3DS games on the platform from Mercurysteam?  :-X

Yes. Mirror of fate initially looked promising, but turned out to be a cheap replica of the original product, which had no soul… Just like its Alucard….. & Konami.

It’s honestly the worst Castlevania game to this day. I still can’t believe MSteam made Samus Returns & Metroid Dread, as I believe they’re good games.

The appropriate time & place would’ve been the 3ds… Not only were there other remakes occurring, namely Zelda, this would’ve attracted attention and boosted sales. Not to mention people love the idea of owning handheld-Vania of any kind, specifically on a Nintendo console.

Off Topic / Dracula: Unborn

Dracula: Unborn by Peter Tremayne

I recently got a hold of this book and just finished it a day or so ago. I felt it was an interesting read and it does go into some details of how vampires come to be, the methods of slaying them, as well as the history of Vlad III's family; where they came from and how his powers of vampirism come from ceremonies dating far into the distant past, predating the Christian faith, yet are branded taboo by said authorities. The novel was released back in 1977 and is treated as a memoir as written by Vlad's third son Mircea, and is documented by Abraham Van Helsing with several cliff notes in the book that gives some more info on specifics. I did get a bit of the ole' castlevania vibe from this one and it is an unofficial prequel to Bram Stoker's original novel. I felt it was a better read then Dracula: the Undead by Dacre Stoker as it retains the traditional vampire rather then establishing some of the Hollywood tropes (like death by sunlight). If you ever find it give it a read if you haven't already.
