Konami has announced Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood, due out exclusively on PlayStation 4 as a download title on 26th October 2018.
Castlevania Requiem is a bundle including classic games Rondo of Blood, which came out in Japan in 1993, and its sequel, 1997's Symphony of the Night. They revolve around vampire hunter Richter Belmont and Dracula's son Alucard. Symphony of the Night is widely considered to be the best Castlevania game, and appears on many best games of all time lists.
Both games are the originals emulated for PS4, with updates including 4K/1080p upscaling, multiple high resolution backgrounds, different rendering options such as smoothing and full Trophy support.
Requiem makes use of the DualShock 4's vibration, analogue stick and speaker (you hear a little chime when you pick up an item).
