Konami brings back two vampire-hunting classics with Castlevania Requiem, out 26 Oct.

Castlevania Requiem 08

Konami has partnered with Sony Interactive Entertainment to deliver Castlevania Requiem, a modern port of platforming classics Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood. The PlayStation 4 exclusive launches on 26 October, coinciding with the Season 2 premiere of Netflix’s Castlevania adaptation.

Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night released in 1993 and 1997 respectively. While the former had players following Simon Belmont’s son, Richter, its sequel has us controlling Dracula’s son instead, Alucard. The two games and its characters are some of the more memorable ones in the Castlevania series, whose stories were also tapped on for Netflix’s animated shorts.

Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood is priced at US$19.99 (approx. S$27).

In the meantime, be sure to check out Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon if you’re hankering for some authentic old-school Castlevania.
