Castlevania fans rejoice, a collection of games is on the way!
An Australian Classification Board rating for Castlevania Advance Collection appeared on June 18. The rating page lists Konami has the publisher, but developer M2 should be recognizable by fans of the franchise. The developer is responsible for several ports of retro games and created the Castlevania Anniversary Collection in 2019.
According to the listing, the game will be a multi-platform title. However, it is currently unclear which specific platforms will receive the game.
Of course, there is very little information about which titles will be included in the collection. If we base any speculation on its title, we should assume that the Game Boy Advance entries will be the focus. If that’s the case, then expect to see the following Castlevania games:
- Circle of the Moon
- Harmony of Dissonance
- Aria of Sorrow
All three games launched on the Game Boy Advance and were very well-received by fans of critics. They followed in Symphony of the Night‘s footsteps and built on the metroidvania formula.
While a new collection of classic games is always great, it’s important to note that the last original entry in the Castlevania franchise is 2014’s Lords of Shadow 2. Still, the new collection will be a great entry point for newcomers and a chance to replay some of the franchise’s classic titles.
