It seems, and I’m being hopeful here, that Konami is slowly getting its act together, even if it is taking a bit longer than expected. This isn’t the first collection of Castlevania games to grace consoles but the second collection includes some of my personal favourites.
It comes as a surprise to me that Konami registered the Castlevania Advance Collection on June 18, 2021, with the Australian Classification Board. And as internet sleuths did what they do best, they sorted through the rubble to find the diamond in the rough. That of course, includes the three games left out of the Anniversary Collection: Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, and Aria of Sorrow.
According to the listing, the collection is coming from M2, the studio that previously worked on the other Castlevania collection.
