Should we expect an announcement in Nintendo Direct tonight? Since this summer, the arrival of a new compilation of the Castlevania series leaked here and there. But today, the floodgates are wide open.
Last June, our master of the whip (and not that of Paul Prédault) informed you of the potential arrival of the Castlevania Advance Collection, a compilation that appeared by surprise on the site of the Australian organization responsible for the classification of video games. . Today, the matter is clearer as long as we can even take advantage of an official visual. That is to say.
The kiss of love
At the time of its first evocation, the Castlevania Advance Collection already listed three titles that obviously saw the light of day on Game Boy Advance: Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. Again spotted on the Taiwanese listings this time, this compilation still had an advantage up its sleeve, since if the three titles released in 2001 and 2003 are indeed part of the game, a small bonus is invited to the party. , in the presence of … Castlevania: Vampire’s Kiss.
For those who are not as familiar as the most transalpine of our editors with the meanders of the Konami series, remember that Vampire’s Kiss is understood as the Super NES adaptation of the legendary episode originally released on PC-Engine : Rondo of Blood (heart on him). If this version has not really marked the memories as much as the original, it could nevertheless constitute a nice bonus for fans (you have it?) Of the saga, who for the most part have not had the opportunity to play it. And for good reason: just take a look at the rating of the cartridge on a famous auction site to understand how inaccessible he had become.
Listed on PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One, the Castlevania Advance Collection should probably soon be pointing the tip of its crucifix. The other good news is that this new compilation could even be the subject of a physical release in due form, as the site let slip. Play-Asia :
