Konami reveals full game list for Castlevania Anniversary Collection


Kid Dracula!

Roughly a month ago Konami announced the Castlevania Anniversary Collection and gave us four of the eight games they were set to include. Now, thanks to a PlayStation Blog post, we have all of them. So, let's get onto it!

We already knew about Castlevania, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, Castlevania II Belmont’s Revenge (Game Boy) and Super Castlevania IV: but Sony has shared the last few inclusions. It seems as if Bloodlines, Kid Dracula, Castlevania the Adventure (Game Boy), and Castlevania II: Simon's Quest will round out the collection. Hilariously the infamous latter entry was left out of the initial announcement, which had fans scratching their heads wondering whether or not we'd get the first and third games and not the second. Now a new generation can feel confused all over again.

You know Konami had to get that third one in there as soon as possible though, as it's still one of the most beloved Castlevania games to date and one of the most popular to speedrun. That's not even the tip of the iceberg though, as no one collection can do the series justice. There are so damn many Castlevania games out there (even ones that can be considered "mainline entries"). Hopefully we get a Switch collection of the entire portable run starting with Circle of the Moon all the way through Order of Ecclesia.

Whatever the case might be in the future, this Anniversary Collection will arrive on May 16 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.
