Castlevania Advance Collection resurfaces once again, and this time a rating board shows the game receiving classification in Korea.
Konami’s Castlevania Advance Collection is an official announcement short of confirmed. Originally showing up in Australia’s listing, Gematsu discovered the games in Korea’s rating board. This underscores that the game, at the very least, is coming for PC.
Castlevania GBA games among most celebrated titles in franchise
Castlevania has one of the most celebrated Gameboy Advanced titles of all time. After the release of Symphony of the Night, Castlevania moved onto the Nintendo handheld. It found its home there, with three of its most critically-acclaimed titles in game.
Castlevania: Circle of the Moon takes place in 1830 follows Nathan Graves, a successor outside the Belmont clan. One of Dracula’s minions, Camilla, revive the vampire lord and drops Nathan down the castle.
Circle of the Moon itself received critical acclaim upon release. The game received the 12th highest-rated GBA title of all time.
Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance came out the year after in 2002, with the game set in 1748. The game follows Juste Belmont, the grandson of Simon Belmont. Together with Maxim and Lydie, they attack Dracula’s castle and meet Death in it.
Harmony of Dissonance is also highly-rated, receiving an 87 from Metacritic. The title, while the weakest of the trilogy, is still better than most.
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow came out in 2003 and follows Soma Cruz in 2035 Japan. During a solar eclipse, he is transported to the castle with his friend, Mina Hakuba.
Aria of Sorrow is one of the most lauded Castlevania titles of all time. Reviews dub it as the true successor to SOTN, calling it as the definitive GBA Castlevania title.
Konami banking on its old titles
The Castlevania Advance Collection is receiving ratings left and right. The remasters should be a welcomed addition to the PC and likely other consoles. All three games only received a re-release once within the Wii U Virtual Console in 2015.
There is no official announcement yet, but the collection is something people wait for. Over the past few years, Konami released several compilations of their older titles. Furthermore, most of these retro titles even have a specific retro-mode museum.
In 2019, Castlevania Anniversary Collection came out and contained eight of Castlevania’s titles. Furthermore, many of these come from the early years of the franchise, from the NES, SNES, Game Boy, and Sega Mega Drive.
Castlevania Advance Collection has no definite release date yet. More information should come in the months to come.
