We reported last week a new listing from the Korean Ratings Board that seemed to indicate a collection called Castlevania Requiem which would contain Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood would be making its way to PS4 at some point. Well, this title’s existence seems to be even further confirmed as of today.

A new rating for Castlevania Requiem recently hit the Internet and this time, it has appeared on the ESRB’s website. Yes, the rating system that we here in the United States are familiar with has now listed the game and with it seems to confirm that this collection will indeed only be on PS4 and will only include the two aforementioned titles from the series.

A description for this collection was also provided which further confirms that only two games will be included:

This is collection of two action platformers in which players assume the role of a vampire hunter battling Dracula and other creatures. From a side-scrolling perspective, players traverse Dracula’s castle to kill fantastical enemies (e.g., zombies, demons, minotaurs). Characters use whips, swords, axes, and magic to defeat enemies. Pixelated blood is depicted when players’ character and creatures are killed; some attacks result in decapitation and dismemberment of creatures, including a boss character that loses its body parts and entrails. As players progress, they may encounter female creatures (e.g., harpies, medusa) that have exposed buttocks and are depicted topless, though there are no discernible details (i.e., no nipples).

At this point, the existence of Castlevania Requiem seems to be a sure thing. Even though Konami has still been quiet when it comes to officially announcing this bundle, I’d have to imagine we’ll hear something by the end of the week.
