The PC Engine that it was released on in Japan is known as the TurboGrafx-16 in the U.S.

In Japan it is called Akumajo Dracula X: Chi no Rondo, which translates to Devil's Castle Dracula X: Rondo of Blood.

In 1995 Castlevania: Dracula X was released for the SNES, which was originally supposed to be the U.S. version of Rondo of Blood. However since the SNES did not have the memory capability of the TurboGrafx-16, Konami decided to change the storyline and levels, thus making it a different game.

In 2007 Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles was released on the Sony PSP. This was a remake of Rondo of Blood with new graphics and English translation.

The original version of Rondo of Blood, along with Castlevania: Symphony of the Night are unlockable games on Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles.

The Wii Virtual Console version is in Japanese language, with no translation.

The U.S. logo on this page is from the Dracula X Chronicles version of the game.
