Published: Thursday 16 February, 2017

Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness was present within the series' original chronology from its original release until 2002, when a timeline published on the official Japanese Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance website omitted it – as well as several other Castlevania games – from the series' continuity Lollipop Chainsaw Costumes
. The others also included Castlevania Legends for the Game Boy, Castlevania: Circle of the Moon and the original Castlevania release for the Nintendo 64.

In 2006, series producer Koji Igarashi stated that "These games were taken out of the timeline [...] not because I didn't work on them, but because they were considered by their directors to be side projects in the series" Cosplay Costumes
. Since the 2002 removal, the events of Legacy of Darkness have occupied an ambiguous place in timelines published by Konami of Japan, Konami of America, and various gaming publications. The most recent English language timeline, distributed with preordered versions of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin in North America by Konami of America, includes Legacy of Darkness but does not describe the game's plot. IGA later clarified that he looks at the titles as "...a Castlevania "gaiden" (subseries)" and complimented them by stating "...they both have a really unique take on the Castlevania world."

IGA later reincorporated the games into his timeline, and included Cornell as a playable character in Castlevania Judgment (Nov 2008). The game included references to the plot and elements from the game including Cornell's sister Ada and his clan. Chronologically speaking his appearance in Castlevania Judgement is set before the events of Legacy of Darkness League of Legends Costumes
. The manual states that Cornell's previous appearance was in Legacy of Darkness. According to IGA characters from different eras of Castlevania's timeline were brought together by magic to save the timeline from being destroyed.

Legacy of Darkness has received a mixed reception. It received an aggregate score of 63.80% from GameRankings. Tim Turi of Game Informer felt that the werewolf form was interesting but not enough to make it a good game.
