The Castlevania Anniversary Collection is coming quickly (May 16) and when it arrives, it will send with eight video games: Castlevania, Castlevania II, Castlevania III, Super Castlevania IV, Castlevania: The Adventure (Game Boy), Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge (Game Boy), Castlevania: Bloodlines, and Kid Dracula.
In the west, all of the ones are going to be the western versions we already were given (and lots of grew up with), however the PlayStation Blog simply threw a (pretty, plush) wrench into the combo. According to the publish, Konami goes so as to add in Japanese versions (for an unspecified quantity of titles) “in a while after release.” It’s a small factor for some and an choice that many may not even toggle on, however purists will welcome it.
In this publish “Kojima is fired” international Konami is banking onerous on nostalgia. Castlevania and Bomberman got here again from the void, as did Zone of the Enders. Even if maximum of the ones efforts are simply re-releases, they are for sure looking to re-light the spark that they misplaced from all varieties of avoidable calamities, just like the cancellation of P.T. and the aforementioned shunning of a legend. While many will by no means omit or forgive, others are slowly, however cautiously drawing near Konami’s still-alive frame, poking it with a stick.
