It appears Konami is continuing their 50th Anniversary celebration by (finally) releasing the full list of Castlevania titles we can expect to see in their upcoming anniversary collection.
Four of the eight titles were announced back in March of this year. Now Konami has given us the full list of titles that will be included in their upcoming Castlevania Anniversary Collection. While some were expected, a couple of others have caught everyone by surprise, but in a good way. Looking at you Kid Dracula.
The full list of games is as follows…
Castlevania Anniversary Collection
- Castlevania (NES)
- Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest (NES)
- Castlevania: The Adventure (Game Boy)
- Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse (NES)
- Kid Dracula (Famicom)
- Castlevania 2: Belmont’s Revenge (Game Boy)
- Super Castlevania 4 (Super NES)
- Castlevania Bloodlines (Sega Genesis)
Kid Dracula saw a Game Boy sequel/remake in North America, but the original Kid Dracula was only released on the Famicom in Japan.
As an added bonus, those that download the collection will also receive an eBook, which includes an interview with the producer of the Netflix Castlevania Animated Series, Adi Shankar!
The Castlevania Anniversary Collection will be released on May 16, 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. It is priced at $19.99, quite a steal for so many classics.
Konami isn’t stopping with the Castlevania Collection though. Their Arcade Classics Collection just recently launched and that has some gems in it as well. It includes Nemesis, A-JAX, Salamander, Vulcan Venture, Thunder Cross, Scramble, TwinBee, and the 1988 Castlevania spin-off title, Haunted Castle.
On top of that, they will also be releasing a Contra Anniversary Collection, but that release date is currently unknown.
