In a post on the Playstation Blog, Sony announce that the classic Castlevania Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood will be coming to Playstation 4 on October 26th, 2018.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood Comes to PS4 October 26
Requiem has bundled together two Castlevania games which are connected by characters and plot. The games focus on the tales of vampire hunter Richter Belmont and Dracula’s son Alucard. Requiem will bundle both titles Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood together.
The original release of the game dates back to 1993, when Konami launched it as an exclusive for Japan. An action packed, side-scroller Rondo of Blood was praised for it’s design and it’s challenging yet rewarding gameplay. Symphony of the Night is a sequel to the acclaimed Rondo of Blood, staying true to it’s predecessor’s formula but with the addition of RPG elements and continuing to excel in level design.
Both of these games are the originals but emulated to play on Playstation 4 and will use the console’s modern benefits to add further enjoyment to the game. These advantages include the ability to use 4k/1080p upscaling, a variety of high resolution backgrounds, a choice of rendering options to allow smoothing and full Trophy support. But don’t think that the Platinum trophy will come easy, players will need to use their skills to achieve it in one of the most challenging games to date.
Other updated features include the use of DualShock 4 vibration, analog stick and speaker, meaning you can hear a chime sound effect whenever you pick up an item.
