Symphony of the Night And Rondo Of Blood Possibly Coming To Modern Systems
Castlevania is celebrating its 32nd anniversary later this month, meaning that the series has an extensive and nostalgic history behind it. For many fans, the 1997 Symphony of the Night is a highlight of those three decades, and there are very few modern ways to play it. The latest release was included in the PSP remake Dracula X Chronicles, which technically makes it playable on the Vita, but otherwise there are few options.
A Korean Ratings Board listing indicates that might not be the case for too long, however, as a game titled Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood has been rated for PlayStation 4. Judging from the title, the collection would include 1996's Symphony of the Night and its more action-oriented predecessor Rondo of Blood.
The Korean Ratings Board is a pretty useful indicator of games that are coming up but have not yet been announced. Earlier today, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was listed for PlayStation 4, while previous listings accurately revealed Assassin's Creed Rogue HD and Fortnite on Switch to name a few.
It would also make sense for Konami to capitalize on both the Castlevania name and Richter specifically with the character's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Switch. While this collection hasn't been officially announced if it is indeed real, maybe an announcement is being timed with the second season of the successful Netflix show in October.
While the listing only shows PlayStation 4, the nature of the way the ratings board produces listings means that not every platform is shown at once.
