Good morning Akumajo fans! Late yesterday, Konami officially announced the Castlevania Anniversary Collection for the Playstation 4, XBox One, Steam, and Nintendo Switch. This collection will include 8 games, but only 4 have been announced. These include Castlevania, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge, and Super Castlevania IV. The collection will also include an eBook with bonus content from developers and artists who worked on the series. Konami notes this is a digital only release coming early summer 2019.

Well well well…This is an interesting development… Konami isn’t blind. They’ve seen us. They’ve seen Igarashi raise $5.5 Million on Kickstarter. They’ve seen Castlevania’s success on Netflix, They’ve seen Curse of the Moon’s success on consoles and PC, They’ve seen the enthusiasm for Simon and Richter joining Super Smash Bros. And just a few weeks ago they saw Igarashi announce Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for Summer 2019. Konami sees the rising tide. Are they trying to steal Igarashi’s thunder? Are they simply cashing in? Or could there be a genuine renaissance in the works? Capcom’s Mega Man Anniversary Collections paved the way for Mega Man 11’s development. Could something similar be planned for Castlevania?
Considering the absence of Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest and Castlevania: The Adventure, Konami seems to be taking a “greatest hits” approach instead of a comprehensive collection of the 8 and 16 bit classics. Castlevania What is a man A miserable little pile of secrets shirt? With that in mind, we predict Castlevania: Bloodlines, Castlevania Chronicles, Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night are the most likely candidates to round out this 8 game collection. But what do you think of all this? Please leave your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below.
