A Castlevania Anniversary Collection Seems to Be In Development

A leak from the Australian Classifications Board points towards a Castlevania Anniversary Collection could be coming soon.

Great news for fans of the Castlevania series as the Castlevania Anniversary Collection has been teased thanks to a leak through the Australian Classification Board on Tuesday. Konami registered a title called “Castlevania Anniversary Collection” through the Australian Classification Board with a PG rating.

This leak suggests that Konami has plans for the gothic action-adventure series as Castlevania celebrating its 33rd anniversary in 2019.

The registration info lists the game to release on multiple platforms. Although the description on the page is pretty brief, it isn’t stopping fans in making their own guesses. Right now, the leak doesn’t tell us which games will be a part of the Castlevania Anniversary Collection. Fans of the series speculate that it will probably include a collection of the NES and SNES games.

The Australian Department of Communications and the Arts uses this rating system for various forms of entertainment. These ratings on the box help consumers make an informed choice for themselves and their families. The rating is generally done for games, movies, and other publications. It works the same way as the ESRB and PEGI systems do in the US and EU.

The first entry in the series, simply known as “Castlevania launched for Famicom on September 26, 1986, in Japan. The series quickly gained popularity with more and more sequels for the upcoming consoles of that generation.

Last October, players got to see The Castlevania Requiem Collection, which included the fan favorite Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood. The Requiem Collection also included a variety of features such as 4K/1080p upscaling, high-resolution backgrounds, a smoothing render option, and trophy support, as well as the use of the DualShock 4’s vibration and speaker.

Right now, the leak doesn’t clearly tell what fans will get any similar improvements from the Castlevania Anniversary Collection but it is being speculated that we’ll get to see a major overhaul in graphics.
