Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (JP) is a Japanese platform-adventure game developed by Konami for the PC Engine Super CD-ROM² System. The game was directed by Toru Hagihara.

The game was released in Japan on October 29, 1993. It was the 10th installment in the Castlevania series by Konami, and the X in the title was specifically chosen to be ambiguous with the Roman numeral.

The game was ported to the SNES as Castlevania: Dracula X. The original version of Rondo of Blood was also released for the Wii's Virtual Console service in Japan in 2008 and worldwide in 2010.




The protagonist is 19-year-old Richter Belmont, heir to the whip Vampire Killer and Simon Belmont's direct descendant. He comes to the castle after his beloved Annette is kidnapped by Dracula's servant Shaft.

Two times throughout the game, Dracula's trusty lieutenant, Death, attempts to stop Richter before he reaches Dracula. Along the way, Richter may attempt to rescue some other prisoners hidden away in the castle.
