The collection includes the original version of the game updated for 4K/1080p.


Castlevania fans rejoice! Konami announced a new bundle that includes classic titles Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night from 1993 and 1997 respectively. The collection is called Castlevania Requiem and it will be available October 26, 2018 only on PS4.

These two entries in the Castlevania franchise focus on Richter Belmont and Alucard. This will be the second major announcement of the year for Richter, as he's also been confirmed as a new playable character in the upcoming Nintendo brawler Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Eurogamer confirms that the versions of the game will be the originals updated for Ps4 with 4K/1080p upscaling, high-resolution backgrounds, trophy support, and different rendering options.

      Awesome, the two best Castlevanias ever, and it looks like they've done a good job not mucking up the pixel art. Look to be straight, clean ports (based on the 17 second trailer)

      So I guess that would rule out the possibility of SotN being on the Playstation Classic. Not sure they would release it this way if they had intentions of releasing it on the classic.
      The more time passes, the more I think the reason they last 15 games they will name is going to be super disappointing because all the good ones are going to either have licence issues or have remakes done or in the works.
