Castlevania! Contra! More!
Konami might not be in everyone's good books, but the company has been around for a very long time. This year marks its 50th anniversary, and to celebrate, the publisher has announced a trio of legacy collections coming to PS4 in 2019. The first to arrive will be Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection, a pack that...
Jamie is Iga to sing Castlevania’s praises for its Gothic atmosphere
Not only is Castlevania: Rondo of Blood my first pick when playing a traditional-style Castlevania arcade platformer, but Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is possibly my favourite PSone game of all time. It’s conventional for gamers to play spookily themed titles during...
We understood that reference
It's not long before the return of Castlevania on PS4, with Castlevania Requiem bringing both Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood to the modern console. Along with the usual improvements this sort of compilation offers is a slew of trophies, and it's clear the people responsible for naming them have had some fun...
Remember that patent from the weekend about how Sony’s using nifty technology to remaster through emulation? We always suspected that Castlevania Requiem would be one such title taking advantage of the tech, and it turns out we were correct: the Konami classics are coming to the PlayStation 4 courtesy of the console’s PlayStation...
Konami gives a reason
Konami has kind-of-sort-of explained the reason why Castlevania Requiem is releasing exclusively on PlayStation 4. For those who don't already know, the title bundles two remastered games together: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. It was officially announced earlier today, but news of its PS4...
Back from the dead
After being leaked by both the Korean and North American rating boards, Konami has officially announced Castlevania Requiem, exclusively for PS4. The package brings the PlayStation classic Castlevania: Symphony of the Ni
New rating spotted
Last week, classic PlayStation title Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was rated in Korea for PlayStation 4, usually a dead giveaway that an official announcement is imminent. All eyes were on Tokyo Game Show over the weekend, but the reveal never arrived. Fans need not worry, however, as the reported PS4 remastered collection...
Rondo of Blood potentially being revamped, too
What would we do without the Korean ratings board? Ever the source of accurate leaks, it looks like iconic PlayStation platformer Castlevania: Symphony of the Night will be re-releasing on the PlayStation 4 alongside its PC Engine CD predecessor Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. It appears the delicious duo...
With the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series, developer MercurySteam successfully rebooted Konami’s much loved series. Now, with the arrival of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 on the PlayStation 3, the Spanish studio’s aiming to bring the series to a close, while at the same time attempting to fully deliver on the promise shown by the...

A fair crack of the whip
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is only a couple of weeks away from launching on the PlayStation 3, but starting today in North America, you'll be able to have a little taste of what's to come with a free downloadable demo. It was previously only available to those that purchased the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection,...
Fang you very much
Konami has spared no expense on the voice cast in upcoming PlayStation 3 murder-‘em-up Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, with high-profile thespians such as Robert Carlyle, Sir Patrick Stewart, and Richard Madden all reprising their roles in the upcoming current generation release. If you’re in need of further proof of the star...
Please, for the love of Dracul
Sony’s former flagship format is far from being obsolete, with titles such as Dark Souls II and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII on the way to the PlayStation 3. One other game that’s preventing us from putting away our current-gen console is
We take a look back at the Sony history of Konami's famous franchise
Konami’s Castlevania series may have established its reputation on Nintendo consoles, but in recent years it has branched out to find commercial and critical success on other systems, most notably the PlayStation line of consoles. With Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 looming...
Koji ‘IGA’ Igarashi reveals the history behind the gothic classic
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night marked a major turning point for the Castlevania series. With the exception of the free-roaming Simon’s Quest on the NES, over a decade’s worth of instalments had displayed an unwavering commitment to the fairly straightforward ‘platform...
