Old Grudges
Last night, I defeated Balor of the Evil Eye. (Balor was the Fomorian that killed Nuadha in the Celtic myth.) Castlevania has been using a lot of mythological creatures as end bosses since the beginning. The new one has "Balore" as an end boss. Apparently, as is often the case in the Castlevania series and other video games, the person translating the game from Japanese to English didn't know that it was actually the name of something from mythology and just translated it phonetically.
