As the sun sets, the sky looming above the grave of Count Dracula foretells the coming of a great storm.
The wish of those who marched in the name of evil comes true, as lightning strikes the grave, raising Dracula back amongst the undead.
These words follow:
"Every one hundred years the forces of good mysteriously start to weaken. Thus, the power of Dracula starts to revive itself. His power grows stronger and stronger every one hundred years.
Dracula has revived many times. However, his sinister actions have been consistently thwarted by the Belmont family.
It's been one hundred years since the last confrontation between Dracula and the Belmont family. But now the serenity of Transylvania is being threatened by destructive forces.
On a dark and eerie night Dracula rose from his grave to unleash his destructive power over the countryside.
Once again Simon Belmont is called upon to destroy Dracula. With only his whip and courage he sets out to restore peace to Transylvania."
