I'm very excited for all of these collections. Super Castlevania IV is one of my favorite games of all time.

I wish Konami (which I believe own Ultra games...could be wrong) would make a new updated version of their old NES game Base Wars: Cyberstadium Series futuristic baseball game. With todays graphics & realistic gameplay, it would be insane on current (or next-gen conoles)

They had me until digital only. This is exactly the kind of stuff that needs to not be digital only.

I'm totally fine with DRM free digital, so hopefully GOG sells this on PC. That would suit me fine.

Looks like Hamster is releasing their own Konami arcade games via their Arcade Archives series. First game is Time Pilot on the 11th.

I wish Konami would release an arcade beat em up compilation like Capcom recently did.

Crime Fighters 1 + 2 (Vendetta), Violent Storm, Turtles 1 + 2, X-men, Metamorphic Force, Mystic Warriors.

Would be a day one buy.

Well that’s underwhelming, but I guess that’s a fair deal for $20. I suppose we’ll have to wait for the next iteration (or DLC packs) to get the GBA/DS games.

For Rondo of Blood, maybe we’ll get the recent PS4 collection or hope Hamster releases it. I’d really like to see a remaster of Rondo, but it would probably be some 2.5D sadness like that PSP release.

The PS4 collection is a Sony exclusive - they forked out the money for it, and it uses a proprietary PSP emulator that they designed for the Parappa the Rapper re-release a couple years ago.

That's not to say that Rondo itself can't be re-released on a non-Sony platform, but it would have to be a straight port/emulation of the original PC Engine version, not an emulation of the PSP release.

That would be fine, a very accurate release (Hamster/Virtual Console style) or fan-centric release (M2 style) would be a must buy. Then repeat for SotN

I just noticed the page for Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection (and the trailer for this collection) reads “Powered by Arcade Archives,” every game in this collection was previously released by Hamster/Arcade Archives for PS4. Thunder Cross was not released in US/EU, but they are all available via PSN.

Simon's Quest seems to get a lot of criticism online. It has some arcane puzzles and a cheap boss fight
[Show spoiler](use laurels to be invincible and slay Dracula)
but I've always enjoyed it a lot. Glad Konami is including it.

Simonís Quest is a great game let down by a bad translation and hint system. Even the Japanese release had issues. Once you know what youíre doing itís fine but going in blind is a nightmare.

That's why finding Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest Redaction is necessary. It fixes pretty much everything wrong with the original game

Konami must agree, the US version is the one included with the Japanese collection.

The Castlevania Anniversary Collection is on the cusp of release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Konami delivered one last surprise right before moonrise: The Japanese versions of the games will be available via a free update shortly after launch.

"We heard your calls and Konami will add Japanese title variants as a free update shortly after launch," Konami Digital Entertainment brand manager Benjamin Kinney wrote earlier today on the official PlayStation blog. "Keep your eyes peeled for more details!"

I just download the 悪魔城ドラキュラ Collection from the Japanese eShop. Although it states “Japanese/English” for the supported languages, it is misleading.

On the English setting, the main menu options have English but that’s about it. All games except “Simon’s Quest” is in Japanese with no way to switch languages. The bonus features with the making of and interviews are also in Japanese only. Was excited to see “Kid Dracula” and it’s first English localized form, but that’s not available at the moment. Just a word of warning for non Japanese speakers!
