Konami has just updated a bunch of information of their official Castlevania website ahead of the release of Castlevania Requiem later this month. The company added complete storylines for the collection coming out on October 26th, as well as a detailed history of every Castlevania game ever released. They may be brief, but at least they acknowledge Castlevania 64. Here’s the stories for the upcoming release, which we can’t wait to get our hands on.
Rondo of Blood
In the days of old, the people thrived on peace and prosperity. Indeed, fears of unrest were not among their thoughts…
But, ever-present, beneath the veneer of tranquility, evil lurks. Evil, which spurns prosperity and disdains peace.
Gather they did, those who wished to summon the powers of darkness and cleanse the decadence of the world. And, with smiling countenance, they anxiously awaited the coming of their era.

With no idea where to begin her search, Maria Renard set out to look for him. It was then that fate intervened. Castlevania, the castle of Dracula, which is rumored to appear once every century, suddenly materialized from out of the mist as if to show her the way.
Meanwhile, powerful forces were struggling for the soul of a man named Alucard. The very same Alucard who had teamed up with Trevor Belmont to battle his immortal father, Count Vlad Tepes Dracula. Alucard, in order to purge the world of his own cursed blood line, had submerged his vampiric powers and entered into what was supposed to be an eternal slumber. But now, he is awake and aware of the evil once again at work in his homeland.
The time has once again come for the forces of Good and Evil to engage in their ancient battle. Dracula’s castle beckons you…
