Here’s the news many of us North America-based, Castlevania-obsessed freaks have been desperately waiting for: Castlevania: Rondo of Blood is finally making it Stateside thanks to a Virtual Console release. The ESRB gave us a heads up not long ago, but Hudson has gone on to confirm the good news.
Talking to Siliconera, a representative from Hudson said Rondo of Blood ought to be “released shortly” but not in English. Oh no, whatever will we do? There’s so much important text in the older Castlevania games. How the heck will any of us know how to whip skeletons without intense instructions first?
Now that my sarcasm powers have been permanently depleted from overuse, let me say how excited I am to finally play a non-emulated non-shady version of this game on my TV. Anyone else pumped up by this confirmation?
