From the product page:
Dracula's Curse is a dark horse for much loved original NES / Famicom trilogy, because it was a happy marriage of the linear elements of the first Castlevania and the more exploratory elements of Simon's Quest – a union that introduced dynamics such as multiple playable characters, multiple paths and multiple endings – that remained entrenched in the modern Castlevania games of today. The story follows Trevor Belmont, Simon’s ancestor and his battles with the prince of darkness, alongside three other warriors: Grant Danasty the Pirate, Sypha Belnades the Mystic, and Alucard, Dracula’s Son, who makes their series debut here, and will play a more pivotal role in the games to come.
