If you wanted to play a Castlevania installment on a handheld in the past, you were forced to choose a Nintendo product. But after six years of unending support for Nintendo's handhelds, Konami is finally bringing the legendary franchise back to a Sony platform; specifically, the PSP.
Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles , a port of the PC Engine Duo's Dracula X: Rondo of Blood , is on the way. Recently unveiled at the press event for Konami's Gamer's Day, they explained that this new game will boast a full 3D overhaul for all you new-age gamers. But for the old-schoolers, Konami is including the original version in the package, and one other pleasant little surprise…
It's a direct port of the classic – and widely regarded as the absolute best Castlevania – Castlevania: Symphony of the Night , complete with a redone translation and full-screen graphics. The complete reconstruction of Rondo of Blood was good enough, but throw in the original version and Symphony of the Night , and you've got a must-have for any PSP owner.
For now, Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles is loosely scheduled for a Fall 2007 release.
