Castlevania Anniversary Collection Getting A Limited Run Physical Release

The veritable onslaught of Limited Run Games releases can sometimes be overwhelming, but when something this special comes along a moment of pause is required. Konami used to be a powerhouse developer, but in recent times the company has become a shell of itself. While the wait for a new Castlevania game has been interminable, fans were at least thrown a bone in the form of the delectable Castlevania Anniversary Collection which launched a couple of years ago. The compilation contains the following games:

Castlevania II Simon’s Quest
Castlevania III Dracula’s Curse
Super Castlevania IV
Castlevania The Adventure
Castlevania II Belmont’s Revenge
Castlevania Bloodlines
Kid Dracula

Not bad, eh? Up until now, however, Castlevania Anniversary Collection has only been available via the eShop. This is where LRG comes in:


The Castlevania Anniversary Collection slays on Switch & PS4 with Standard, Classic, Bloodlines, and Ultimate physical editions!

Here’s a look at that Ultimate edition:

The Ultimate Edition has it all: a reversible poster with all-new art from classic Konami cover artist Tom duBois, a shadow box with lights and sound, a SteelBook, a collection of mini replica boxes, and more that we can’t fit in one tweet!

Pre-orders start May 14 at 10 AM ET.

The contents of the Ultimate edition are as follows:

Castlevania Anniversary Collection Classic Edition
Switch Limited Run #106: Castlevania Anniversary Collection
Throwback NES-Style Konami Silver Box printed with Metallic Silver Ink to perfectly match your retro boxes. This box features all-new art from legendary Konami cover artist Tom duBois.
Retro NES-Style Dust Sleeve sized to fit your game case.
Physical Soundtrack CD featuring selected tracks from the games included in the Castlevania Anniversary Collection
Reversible 18- by 24-inch Poster

Castlevania Anniversary Collection Bloodlines Edition Plastic Clamshell Case
Physical “The History of Castlevania: Book of the Crescent Moon” Book
Miniature Replica Box Collection featuring all eight games from the Castlevania Anniversary Collection
Three Premium Retro Box Art Prints
Castlevania Logo Enamel Pin
Official Nintendo Switch Sized SteelBook Case
Shadow Box featuring Tom duBois’ stunning new art with button activated lights and sound.
Premium die-cut box allows you to showcase the shadowbox even if the game remains sealed.

Pretty awesome stuff here for a fanbase that has overall been neglected for quite some time. Maybe if this sells well enough it will get Konami to work on a new Castlevania installment? Who knows, but if nothing else this will be quite the addition to any fan’s collection. The pre-order window opens on May 14 and will run for an extended six-week period (usually it’s four). You can pre-order here.
