Konami’s unannounced Castlevania GBA collection rated for consoles and PCs
An unannounced collection of Castlevania Game Boy Advance remasters has now been rated by a third games leaderboard.
Taiwan’s Entertainment Software Rating Information website listed Castlevania Advance Collection and rated it PG-12 for “Sex, Violence, Horror, and Inappropriate Language.”
It also lists the game’s formats for the first time – Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
This is the third time Castlevania Advance Collection has been spotted on a ranking website, although Konami has yet to announce the game.
In June, Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee rated a PC version of the game. This second listing apparently corroborated the planned release, which earlier this month was rated by the Australian Rating Council.
There were three Castlevania games for the Game Boy Advance, all of which were critically acclaimed.
Castlevania: Circle of the Moon was released in 2001 and is set in 1830, with players taking control of Nathan Graves, whose parents had died 10 years earlier while fighting Dracula.
This was followed by Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance in 2002, which takes place in 1748 and puts players in the role of Just Belmont (the grandson of the original game hero Simon Belmont) as he searches for Dracula’s castle. ravaged by monsters for her kidnapped friend Lydia.
Finally, 2003 Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow defies typical series conventions by taking place in the future (the year 2035), where players control a teenage boy called Soma Cruz who has occult powers.
All three games have received high critical acclaim, with all three currently enjoying a Metacritic score of 91.
However, the only time they got re-released was on the Wii U Virtual Console in 2015.
Today also marks the Apple Arcade release of Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls.
The mobile game was “smoothly launched” in Canada in September 2019, but was discontinued a year later, before its release in another region. The Apple Arcade version removes the microtransactions present in the initial version.
