Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood is a Castlevania compilation package including the games Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and its direct sequel, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The game was released on October 26, 2018 exclusively on the PlayStation 4 gaming console via the PlayStation Store.

Both games are based on the previously released PSP remake/compilation Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles, presumably via the PlayStation 4's built-in PSP emulator. This means that the versions included within Castlevania Requiem have the updated scripts and new voice acting.[1]

ProductionEdit

On September 19, 2018, a rating made by the Game Rating Administration Committee (GRAC) of Korea for a product classified as "Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood_PS4" (No. GC-CC-NV-180919-006)[2] was leaked to the public. Shortly afterward, on September 24, an Entertainment Software Rating Board rating was also revealed;[3] the ESRB regulates ratings in the United States and Canada, implying a possible Western release as well.

On September 26, 2018, Konami Europe on its Twitter account confirmed that the game was in production and that it would be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 gaming console on October 26 of that same year.[4] Later that day, a post from PlayStation's Twitter account confirmed a Western release.[5] In both cases, preorders became available from that day, with an initial price of US $19.99.

The game includes the games Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, originally released only in Japan for the NEC PC Engine Super CD-ROM² and later as both a remake and port in the PSP game Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, originally released for the Sony PlayStation in 1997.
