Castlevania Requiem Officially Announced By Konami Today

Konami just dropped a brand new trailer today, putting an end to the rumors on what exactly this so called “Castlevania Collection” would entail. Titled Castlevania Requiem, the collection will be a PS4 port of both Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood. Little is known about which versions of each title will be released. Will SotN be a direct port of the PS3 version or possibly a port from the Dracula X Chronicles. Both have their merits, but it would seem likely that a port of the original PS1 title, horribly good voice acting in tact, would be the best choice for the collection. Leaving out the 2.5D remake of Rondo of Blood, makes it apparent that Konami is wanting to keep a more rooted feel to the collection.

While not mentioned in the trailer, it has been announced that Requiem will come with a host of filters and other display options, as well as full trophy support for both games. No price was announced, but that information should drop soon. Castlevania Requiem is slated to release in just a month on October 26th. So far there has been no indication of release on the likes of Steam, XBox, or Switch.

Castlevania Collection Rumored for PS4 Release

With the recent announcement of Simon and Richter Belmont coming to Nintendo’s legendary Super Smash Brothers series later this year, Konami and Castlevania fans have been hopeful that the series is ready to be resurrected after a nearly 5 year slumber. Some very interesting news broke regarding two of the finest titles in the series today and the potential of an even bigger collection.

One clue that has been uncovered is that of a rating for the title Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood straight from the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea. What’s more is that, at least thus far, the so called collection is only heading to Sony’s PS4. While that may be a disappointment for Xbox and Nintendo fans, ratings have been submitted for both Japanese and English. This very well could point to a high possibility of a release in the West. Given the series popularity in the West, I’d wager this is more likely then not.

No further information is known at this time. It will be interesting to see if this collection will end up being more then a port of the Dracula X Chronicles from the PSP or an even bigger collection of titles from the entirety of the series. Check back for updates as this story unfolds.
