Although Konami is capitalizing on some of its franchises such as Frogger which recently received a live-action game show on streaming service Peacock, many fans of the Japanese publisher is anticipating for more from the firm in terms of new titles. However, the firm as of late continues to push listings for many of its iconic IPs. This spring, it was uncovered that both Castlevania & Metal Gear was trademarked randomly.
Additionally, users online uncovered a listing for Castlevania Advance Collection later on which was suspected from the titling to bundle an assortment of Game Boy Advanced releases. The firm already offered sometime previously with the Castlevania Anniversary Collection, so this new project is not the first the firm has offered a similar collection.
In a new trailer at Thursday’s Nintendo Direct, Castlevania Advance Collection was officially unveiled. The bundle includes Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, and Castlevania: Dracula. You can watch the trailer in the video below:
