"Castlevania Advance Collection" could be rereleasing due to a new rating post by the Australian Classification Board. Although this is just speculation as of the moment, it's quite peculiar why a 1997 game would get another rating 24 years after its making.
'Castlevania Advance Collection' New Rating
What's even more peculiar is that the Australian Classification Board's new posted ratings for the "Castlevania Advance Collection" was registered by Konami themselves on June 18! The registration now lists M2 as the author, well-known for classic game ports and who had also previously worked on the "Castlevania Anniversary Collection" in 2019.
According to RPGsite, the title would somehow imply that this collection would actually be made up of the three powerful and much loved "Castlevania" titles. Those three titles made their presence extremely known on the Game Boy Advance from 2001 up to 2003.
'Castlevania' Game Titles
For those that haven't played the games yet, these include "Castlevania: Circle of the Moon," "Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance," and even "Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow." If the leak is true however, the titles have yet to be announced officially to games.
Three other "Castlevania" titles, however, have also made their way to the newer Nintendo DS in the years right after the Game Boy Advance's lifetime including "Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin," "Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow," and even "Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia." Gamers still have very little to go on except for their particular speculation at the moment.
Game Boy Advance Titles
If gamers are lucky, however, the collection would include the games along with the previous Game Boy Advance titles all together. Of course, there hasn't been official word as to even whether or not the collection does exist. All gamers have right now is a rating.
The official registration on the classification board actually spreads to different platforms. It is now worth noting that the whole "Castlevania Anniversary Collection," which already includes 8 titles all in all, has already been released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Steam, and of course, Nintendo Switch.
'Castlevania' Netflix Series
The games' hype has definitely increased shortly after the Netflix animation of the otherwise classic vampire-slaying game. The in deep story of "Castlevania" which fans were able to briefly experience in the game, unfolded even deeper in the series.
Although some fans complained that the series was not yet enough for them, the four season animation definitely brought new fans to the game. If there really is a "Castlevania Advance Collection" in the works, gamers could be looking at a full set of games as the name suggests.
As of the moment, there is still no confirmation as to whether or not the game collection is really going to happen. One thing that gamers do know, is that the rating could be a clue as to what the next move for Castlevania is. Of course, this is still speculation as of the moment and gamers should wait for the official announcement to be sure.
