Konami has announced that Castlevania Requiem will be released exclusively for PlayStation 4 on October 26. It’s a collection including Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night for Sony’s console.
As explained by Online & Social Media Manager at Konami Europe Asim Tanvir, “both games are closely related by characters and plot, focusing on the stories of vampire hunter Richter Belmont and Dracula’s son Alucard respectively.”
“Both games are the originals emulated for the PlayStation 4, with several updates that take advantage of the new hardware. This includes 4K/1080p upscaling, multiple high-resolution backgrounds, different rendering options such as smoothing and full Trophy support.
Word of warning though, that Platinum will be tough to get. Elsewhere, Requiem will make use of the DualShock 4’s vibration, analogue stick and speaker, with the latter meaning you’ll hear a cool little chime when you pick up an item.”
For those of you who don’t know the game, “Originally released as a Japanese exclusive in 1993, Rondo of Blood is known as one of the best side-scrolling, action games of its time, picking up plenty of praise for its level design and rewarding difficulty.”
“A sequel to Rondo of Blood, Symphony follows a similar formula to its predecessor, but expands on things with the introduction of RPG elements and some mind-blowing, genius level design.”
Pre-order is available now priced at $19,99 (20% discount for PS Plus users, 15% for all the others) and you can check the reveal gameplay trailer below. What do you think about Castlevania Requiem?
