Castlevania Advance Collection has been leaked by an updated Taiwanese rating for the collection coming to consoles and PC, which includes three familiar GameBoy Advance releases in the Castlevania series as well as one surprise. The collection will include Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, and Aria of Sorrow, but will also bundle Dracula X.
As reported by Gematsu, the Castlevania Advance Collection is a package that bundles three classic Castlevania games released for the GameBoy Advance. Aria of Sorrow is the most famous entry headlining this collection as it’s often cited as one of the best in the series. However, fans will also receive Harmony of Dissonance, another popular entry, as well as Circle of the Moon. However, the rating also leaked Castlevania: Dracula X, or better known as Rondo of Blood, which will come with the collection. In addition to the rating, the official box art was also leaked, which you can see below:
The rating mentions that the bundle will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch, and could potentially be announced at today’s Nintendo Direct event. Fans can already play Rondo of Blood via the Castlevania Requiem Collection on PlayStation 4, which includes its direct critically acclaimed sequel Symphony of the Night. The Advance Collection will not include Symphony of the Night since it never saw a release on GameBoy Advance, though fans can still access it on PS4 by purchasing it separately too.
The Castlevania Advance Collection has yet to be officially announced, though it comes at strangely coincidental timing as the Nintendo Direct event, which will feature 40 minutes of new game announcements and updates, seems like the ideal place to announce this collection. We’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store for us tonight, but Castlevania fans are being rewarded with nostalgia right now which hopefully leads to a long-overdue new game in the series.
