The ESRB has rated Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood for PlayStation 4, seemingly confirming that players will see two classic Castlevania games on the PS4 sometime in the future.
The Korea ratings board previously rated the same Castlevania: Requiem: Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood for PS4 last week. ESRB, the US ratings board, has done the same this morning, which is a pretty good indication that this bundle is coming west.
The ESRB rated the Castlevania collection "T" for teens thanks to blood and gore, partial nudity, and violence. The full description is below:
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).
We recently spoke with Symphony of the Night director Koji Igarashi at PAX West where we got a chance to ask him about the localization's voice work (he's a begrudging fan). No word on what kind of re-release this collection could be, but we expect to learn more in the future. The last time Symphony of the Night was released in North America was for the Xbox 360.
