It’s looking even more likely that a new Castlevania collection is on the way.
Just a week after a rating for the mysterious Castlevania Requiem appeared on the Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee site, the Entertainment Software Rating Board has provided its own rating for the PlayStation 4 collection.
The game, which will supposedly include both Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, has been given the T for Teen rating due to blood and gore, partial nudity, and violence. The full rating summary can be seen below.
This is a 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 (e.g., no nipples).
With both the Korean ratings board and ESRB proving Castlevania Requiem‘s existence, it’s only a matter of time before Konami provides an official reveal.
It’s unclear if the collection will get a physical release or will be exclusively digital, but with both games being the most celebrated entries in the series, it’s likely that a physical version would sell well.
