Castlevania Anniversary Collection Includes One Unreleased Gem

Konami has revealed the full set of games to be included in the Castlevania Anniversary Collection, and it includes a ton of classics along with one game officially coming to the west for the first time. It’s set to come on May 16 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, priced at $20.

The latest additions that complete the lineup include Castlevania: The Adventure, Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, Castlevania Bloodlines, and Kid Dracula. The Adventure was the franchise’s first release on handheld devices, and Simon’s Quest introduced RPG mechanics. Bloodlines was a Genesis game that complemented the SNES Super Castlevania IV, which is also in the collection.

The gem of the collection may be Kid Dracula, a cute cartoon spin-off that released on the NES in 1990. Konami boasts that it was previously unreleased outside of Japan. The adorable little cartoon vampire adventure probably doesn’t technically count as Castlevania canon, unfortunately.

Altogether, that makes the game library as follows:

  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
  • Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Castlevania The Adventure
  • Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge
  • Castlevania Bloodlines
  • Kid Dracula
  • Bonus ebook

The emulation is being handled by M2, and the bonus ebook includes an interview with the animated series producer Adi Shankar.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
