Castlevania: Symphony of The Night is considered by many to be one of the greatest games ever made, and quite literally defined a genre (metroid-vania). Rondo of Blood is slightly less revered, but still a solid entry in the Castlevania series, and both of these games are getting PS4 re-releases. The one thing that I can take away from this is that Konami has not forgotten that one of their greatest IPs exists.
They may have defecated all over Metal Gear Solid and most of their other IPs, but there is still hope for Castlevania. The Netflix series is getting a second season very soon, and the first season was absolutely fantastic, I highly recommend that you go check it out ASAP. Maybe we’ll get a new REAL metroid-vania from the people who brought us the original, complete with a sharp, sexy art style like SOTN, corny voice acting, and satisfying progression.
I know I’m really reaching here, but I’d love to see it happen. Check out the trailer above and let us know which of the games is your favorite!
