Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of The Night & Rondo of Blood headed to PS4 next month


Perfectly timed to launch close to Halloween this year, Konami has announced that they will be releasing a bundle of the two best Castlevania titles ever for the PS4 on October 26th, 2018.

The titles, Castlevania: Symphony of The Night (originally for the PS One) and Dracula X: Rondo of Blood (originally for the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16) will be visually enhanced, including 1080p/4K upscaling with high resolution backgrounds and different rendering options such as smoothing along with PlayStation Trophies and DualShock 4 vibration, analogue stick and speaker support.  The music will apparently be better than ever and remain intact, which is of course super important in both of these titles.

Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of The Night And Rondo of Blood will cost $19.99, with a 20% pre-order discount for PS Plus members and a 15% discount for non-members.

See the announcement trailer below and read on for the details.
