Some devs seem to shoehorn combo meters/hit counts in for no reason. Chaos Legion does it too.
There's no reward for the hit count, and it continues to the next enemy, or if you use a crowd control move it races up as it hits everything. Due to the enemy strengths and weaknesses, unless you purposely used attacks the enemy is strong against, the enemy will die quickly. CL is about crowd control and efficiency.
The PS2 Castlevanias also do this but again, no reward.
My copy of the Asian PS3 collection has been ordered. It will arrive before Christmas, but I expect to wait 2-3 weeks as I used economy shipping. I trust Playasia 100% and they ship from Hong Kong which isn't really that far.
