Castlevania Bloodlines for Genesis, Dracula X for SNES, Castlevania 64 and Legacy of Darkness for N64. How likely are they to come to the VC?

No. There is no longer any VC.

...
Serious answer: Perhaps, if Konami is nice, and/or people buy the NES games on there, they might put stuff on there.

My answer is yes, mainly because we only gotten four Castlevania games so far, that along with Castlevania: Rondo of Blood means at least five more possible Castlevania games. So of course we'll see at least one of them, however, the Nintendo 64 titles are questionable at best, due to no third-party support for the N64 Virtual Console yet. However, the other three are likely to hit the service eventually.

We'll get at least one of the 64 games. Frankly, there's no point in releasing Castlevania 64. It's the same game as Legacy of Darkness, but without the refinements.

I want Bloodlines. Second Bloodlines...seriously this game has never come out in any other form since original release. Not even a weird PC-game NES compendium like some of the NES CV's.

Bloodlines is my priority for the VC as well. I hope the other Castlevania games did really well that they will bring more. Who knows maybe we'll get another at Halloween like they did Simon's Quest.

It would be a missed opportunity if they didn't.

I think Rondo of Blood will definately come eventually because that one's already out in Japan. Not sure about Bloodlines or the SNES version of X. Pretty sure we'll never see the N64 ones though.

Super Mario Galaxy 2

Bloodlines and Rondo of Blood will be next. Couldn't say which one would come first. I do hope we see Vampire's Kiss at some point.

And the N64 games could be possible, they can't keep N64 releases strictly Nintendo publshed only forever (although there are some third-party developed N64 games on the VC currently, all have been published by Nintendo) .

Haha, ok... Hate to break it to ya, but you're more likely to see one or both of the N64 games than you are Rondo of Blood.

I don't know why you'd say that, considering the facts.

-First of all there have been no third party N64 games released on VC and no signs of that happening in the future.
-Second, Konami has already released a handful of TG-16 and NES imports on VC, so I see no reason for them to turn down Rondo of Blood, especially when both Konami AND Nintendo knows how much the fans want it.
-Lastly, Rondo of Blood has english menus and subtitles, so that pretty much cements it for release imo.

I also want to add that I don't have hate for the N64 games, in fact I actually liked them a lot and would LOVE to see them come to Virtual Console. I just don't see anything indicating that it'll happen, is all I'm saying.

I hope they release them all. And if they do, I'll be first in line.

There he goes, Firkraag. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die. - My VGscore

Actually, Rondo of Blood doesn't have English subtitles. They had to translate the game to English for the PSP port. Now that's not to say they can't and won't translate it, but I'm not going to get my hopes up. I suspect we'll just get Dracula X for the SNES instead.

As for the N64, 3rd party support is crucial at this point. It's not a matter of 'if', 3rd parties MUST start supporting the N64 now, whether Nintendo wants it or not! Nintendo has very little in the way of 1st party titles left to release for the system, so 3rd parties like Capcom and Konami are going to have to start supporting it now, otherwise we're gonna be stuck with the pathetically small library of games we currently see.
