Set in the year 1479, Castlevania: Curse of Darkness launched on November 1st, 2005 for Xbox and PlayStation 2 consoles. Produced by Koji Igarashi, the music score is by Michiru Yamane with two tracks by Yuka Watanabe.

Development on the 3D platformer followed Lament of Innocence, which depicts the origins of the Belmont Clan. The story of Curse of Darkness similarly experiments with themes of moral ambiguity, following the story of a former henchman of Dracula. Taking place three years after the events of Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, protagonist Hector seeks revenge on Dracula's Castle following the death of his fiancée.

Music for the game is by Michiru Yamane, composer on Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The 55-track digital soundtrack is streaming on YouTube Music, Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited, featuring cover art by illustrator Ayami Kojima. The music score is also contained in Konami's "Music for Castlevania" Aka (Red) 13-CD box set.
