Holy crosses! Today at Limited Run Games’ live E3 presentation, the physical games publisher revealed it’ll be bringing the critically-acclaimed Castlevania: Rondo of Blood back to the present with a localized version of what initially debuted on the TurboDuo system.

Castlevania: Rondo of Blood previously released only in Japan during October of 1993 on the NEC Home Electronics system.
In the West, the game was released two years later on the Super Nintendo; however, what America received was an inferior version called “Dracula X” which disappointingly cut down on content, graphics, and sound design from the disc system release.
The news comes on top of one heck of an E3 week for Richter Belmont, with the character revealed to be getting a brand-new animated series on Netflix and making his way to the physical realm soon with Alucard in Castlevania: Requiem’s first upcoming print release for the PlayStation 4.
When more information regarding Castlevania: Rondo of Blood’s TurboDuo release makes the rounds, we’ll be sure to let you all know!
