The classic adventures of the Konami saga have arrived, and the Castlevania Advance Collection is here, more polished and enhanced than ever. Plus, all the releases are in one!
After months of rumours and leaks, the Castlevania Advance Collection is a reality: available today for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam. We’re talking about a compilation of Konami’s Game Boy Advance saga, along with a Super Nintendo guest game, so in total, you get four classic Castlevania games ready to take on the most hardcore vampire hunters.
Specifically, these are Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, and the SNES Castlevania: Dracula X (Castlevania: Vampire’s Kiss in Europe). All four games include general and quality of life improvements, but without changing their essence too much.
We’re talking about being able to save and load games at any point, rewinding to rewind a few seconds (if needed), and a replay feature to record and replay games for speedrunners and streamers. In addition, the Castlevania Advance Collection includes a gallery of unreleased artwork and sketches from the games, an encyclopedia with all the information you need about the games, and a music player with four soundtracks.
But the best is yet to come: the Castlevania Advance Collection includes ROMs for all four games in all regions. In other words, you can choose to play the Japanese, European or American version of the classic Castlevania.
