My friend recently bought Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles and has yet to touch it because the Symphony of the Night half of the game isn't accessible from the get-go. We know of the 'go to stage 3, do some stuff' method, but my friend doesn't want to do that. They apparently despise Rondo of Blood for some reason. I'm not sure what reason, though, as all I can get out of them on the subject is something about a stage 4. Are there any alternate ways of unlocking Symphony of the Night? Specifically methods that can be done without starting to play Rondo of Blood?
