    After being leaked thanks to the ESRB, Konami has officially confirmed the existence of Castlevania: Requiem, a port of Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood to the PlayStation 4. Both of the games will be simply emulated, but will have "new features", which include upscaling to 4K, and having trophies to achieve. Smaller additions such as rumble support and utilizing the DualShock 4's speaker will also be present. The double pack will have a digital-only release, and will land on the PlayStation Store on October 26.

    Well that's neat either way!
    Would have wished for it to come to multiple consoles, but then again, SOTN has always been pretty much exclusive to Sony, right?

    No, because it got the XBLA port, which never came to PlayStation systems afair. And it had a Saturn version in Japan.

    Oh yeah that's right! Hmm, oh well :)
    I wonder what kind of achievements are added, if there are any real challenging ones, unfair ones, or just regular "beat boss x, unlock 50% of map" stuff.

    I'm kind of looking forward to it. Shame there's no physical release, so me downloading it will depend on the price point - hopefully no more than £15.99 (especially as the PSP/Vita Dracula X Chronicles is only £7.99 on PSN).

    The Ninty fanboys have me lmfao... seriously, so butt hurt about a couple of old games that were never released on Nintendo platforms being rereleased on not-Nintendo platforms... you have heard of emulation right? Honestly, the first time I played through Rondo of Blood was on my 3ds! Pretty sure I could run one of the releases of SotN on my Wii U... if I didn't already have it on a couple of Sony systems!
    ...such a shame it doesn't include Circle of the Moon to really piss the Ninty fans off!

    Darn, I was hoping for a physical (Switch) release... ;_; Oh well, I'll keep playing that way-too-expensive physical PSX version in that case.

    Edit: lol fixed a typo

    Why emulation? I mean, they could've at least bothered to port the PSP version of SOTN.

    If it was the PSP Dracula X Chronicles (as I was suspecting before the trailer) it would also be emulated (in the same fashion that Parappa The Rapper remastered is just the PSP port emulated with HD texture packs). I'm actually surprised to see that the Rondo of Blood is based on PC Engine version instead of Dracula X Chronicles remake.

    Good. My local CEX has a boxed copy of SOTN for a whopping £180 so for that price, I can actually buy this and a second hand PS4 as well.

    Damn I was kinda hoping for a remaster. Oh well whatever lets me play the game again

    Hopefully this sells well and they start making castlevania games again but better this time

    If it's just another emulated version then I will keep playing SOTN on my Xbox One.
