Castlevania: Rondo of Blood for the PC Engine Super CD-ROM² System launched 30 years ago, on this date. The PC Engine CD edition is included in Castlevania Requiem for PlayStation 4.

The story takes place in the late 18th century and centers on Simon Belmont's descendent Richter, as he storms Dracula's castle to free the captive maiden Maria Renard. As with Castlevania III, Rondo incorporates branching paths to allow for variation on return playthroughs.

The soundtrack from the polygonal remake of Rondo of Blood for PlayStation Portable is available for streaming through Amazon Music, Spotify and Apple Music. The Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles soundtrack album features 50 music tracks, covering both the PSP remake and the PC Engine CD source material.

Music for the game is by Masanori Akita, with arrangements by Yuichi Tsuchiya, Akihiro Honda and Yasuhiro Ichihashi. Michiru Yamane contributes new arrangements of "Mournful Serenade" and vocal track "Nocturne" from Symphony of the Night. The "Castlevania: Rondo Of Blood / Dracula X" double vinyl soundtrack ships from record label Mondo in Austin, Texas.
