‘Castlevania Requiem’ Revealed, Arriving Alongside Netflix Season Premiere (VIDEO)
Many gamers out there would very quickly list Castlevania: Symphony of the Night as one of their favorite video games of all time, as sentiment that Sony apparently shares as well, as it has been revealed in a new blog post over on the PlayStation website that ‘Castlevania Requiem,’ a compilation title, has officially been announced for the PlayStation 4! Debuting exclusively on the PlayStation 4, Castlevania Requiem contains two classic titles from the Konami series: Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The former game initially launched back in 1993, with the latter game acting as a sequel, arriving in 1997. Check out the reveal trailer from Konami below:
Both Castlevania games are being emulated for the PlayStation 4, with several updates that take advantage of the console’s power. Per Sony, this includes 4k/1080p upscaling, multiple high resolution backgrounds, different rendering options such as smoothing, and full Trophy support. Additionally, Castlevania Requiem will also make use of the DualShock 4’s vibration, analog stick, and speaker, with the latter making a chime noise when you pick up an item. The compilation title is only available digitally, and there has been no word whether or not either title will at some point be available separately.
Those looking to pre-order the title can do so now over on the PlayStation Store for $16.99, with the pre-order sale price reverting back to $19.99 after the game officially releases on October 26th, 2018. Incidentally, the 26th is also the same day the Netflix Castlevania season 2 premieres, so there will be plenty of Dracula-related antics to be had right before Halloween.
