Good news for Castlevania fans – Dracula X coming to the PSP


If you aren’t into the history of the Castlevania series, you won’t recognize the importance of this, but longtime series fans will. In 1993, Konami released Dracula X: Rondo of Blood in Japan for the PC-Engine console (known as TurboGraphx and later TurboDuo in America). Because the console sold so poorly in the US, the game never made it here legally (it’s a hot post in the TurboDuo usenet group and has been a highly sought after disc on Ebay). Now, nearly 15 years later, Castlevania: Dracula X will be available on the Sony PSP in the dual-game release Caslevania: Dracula X Chronicles (obligatory shorter link), which will include both Dracula X: Rondo of Blood and the associated title Symphony of the Night, originally available on the PlayStation 1.

For a bit more information on this, check out the video interview at TechEBlog (and the shorter link) that covers some of the changes and additions from the classic to the port.
