PSP Invited To Castlevania

Dracula X: Rondo of BloodI’m quite surprised with the amount of rumors that actually turned out to be true for the PSP. At one stage being denied completely, Konami has confirmed to 1UP that they are bringing the war between the Belmonts and Draculas to the PSP this fall.

Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles for the PSP is not only a 3D remake of the Japan only Dracula X: Rondo of Blood, but the UMD will includes the original game in its 2D glory and the port of the best Castlevania game for many, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. 1UP gave the game a glowing preview and there is already an early built of gameplay video available for viewing.

Konami is arguably the most supportive publisher for the PSP so far, and frequently loaded the UMD with plenty of great content. As Ultimate Ghosts ‘n Goblins has proven, there shouldn’t be any worries that something will be lost in the transition from 2D to 2.5D and it will be interesting to see how the developers trying to impress both die-hard Castlevania fans and newcomers to the series.
