For years, it seemed almost as if we would never see the classic side of Konami again. The company was heavily invested in its pachinko business, and it was quite insulting that the other new Metal Gear and Silent Hill games that we would see from the company would be in that category in the place for completed sequelers. But it is lighted a little and has begun returning to some of the classics who have given that resurrection in the first place.
And it includes Castlevania . Last month, the surprising message made that there were two of their old school favorites for Requiem a collection that celebrates the legacy even though it did not cover all games from it. And I’m happy to report that Konami has treated the two titles with dignity and respect for the most. Now, the real question is whether we will see this trend go on because I would totally pay good money to see a Castlevania Requiem: Castlevania Bloodlines and Super Castlevania IV at some point.
The first remarkable title in this collection is Rondo of Blood or known to some on these beaches as Dracula X . This is not the Super Nintendo version that was modified from the original, but rather the original that was debuted abroad on the TurboGrafx CD platform. And I’m all happier for it, because this game did not get a chance at our beaches in the beginning. (The latter turned out to be a title on the Wii Virtual Console, and now.)
Emulation is really well done here, with both games out better than ever (even in 4K – although some pixels obviously stand out) and beautiful soundtracks for each game, especially SOTN .
Requiem to be a hell of a review. 19659002] Oh, and when we return to classics, we are not because of a Contra compilation? Red Falcon will not end himself, you know.
