The Full List Of Eight Games On Anniversary Collection: Castlevania

For curious parties, news broke as it relates to the full game listing of Konami's upcoming Castlevania collection that is due for release May 16th. The eight games to be included are:

- Castlevania (NES)
- Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (NES)
- Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (NES)
- Super Castlevania IV (SNES)
- Castlevania: The Adventure (GB)
- Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge (GB)
- Castlevania: Bloodlines (Genesis)
- Kid Dracula (Famicom)

Purchases are region-specific, so if you buy this in Japan, you get the Japanese releases while non-Japan purchases gain the English versions. So, a fair standard lot of games, with the only real standout being Bloodlines seeing a re-release for the first time in decades as well as the first time non-Japanese audiences (who wouldn't have resorted to imports or emulation, that is) will experience the Famicom Kid Dracula... although in hindsight, I would've preferred the MSX Vampire Killer instead. Still a fairly basic collection for those who never experienced the early games.

For the record, I've yet to play Konami's recent arcade collection, but I might give it a shot somewhere down the line. If nothing else, it should be a good indication as to how the rest of the collections would turn out.
