Typo shame hits Castlevania

Castlevania typoThere is no clearer indication of human folly than the keyboard typo. Not content with exposing the shocking state of spelling affairs in the Mario Kart DS manual, we've now got our microscope aimed at Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. You see, no matter what kind of game it is, a keyboard and a human being will undoubtedly be involved at some point during its creation, with the latter most frequently causing the biggest problems. In this case, somebody's fingers didn't hit their intended targets and cobbled together this on-screen sentence:

That Celia woman... Not only was she after me, shie tried to harm Mina too.

? Who? Hell? She? This makes no sense. Why is she, assuming that Shie is, in fact, a she, trying to harm dear Mina? Well, obviously the game is completely unplayable now. Thanks a lot for destroying the English language, Castlevania.

[Thanks, Daniel S!]

4. Its the Konami Kode. Im pretty sure ALL Konami games use this code to unlock stuff.

For the PS2, they switched B A with X O, and with the Xbox, they made it A B, I believe...

5. Yeah Tony Hawk's has some too... I'd tell you the specifics, but I'm too lazy to go pick up up... More along the lines of Their/There mistakes though...

6. as someone who has dumped the text in this game, this isn't the only error in the dialogue.

here's another example (taken from my guide)

"Yoko Belnades: Most likely, you'll need a a Magic Seal to finish off the

monster in here. Just be calm and focus. I'll be waiting here."
