The Aus­tralian Clas­si­fi­ca­tion Board rat­ed a col­lec­tion of Castl­e­va­nia titles from the Game Boy Advance era. It’s called the Castl­e­va­nia Advance Col­lec­tion and has been rat­ed for mul­ti­ple plat­forms, with the list­ed devel­op­er that should make fans very happy.

The rat­ings page on the Aus­tralian Clas­si­fi­ca­tion Board web­site, which was pub­lished on June 18th, gave the col­lec­tion an M rat­ing. This is not the same as the ESR­B’s M and is more like a T for the ESRB, which does­n’t require restric­tions for purchase.

No indi­vid­ual games were list­ed on the page, but a list of includ­ed titles with­in the col­lec­tion will like­ly include: Castl­e­va­nia: Cir­cle of the Moon, Castl­e­va­nia: Har­mo­ny of Dis­so­nance, and Castl­e­va­nia: Aria of Sor­row, which all released on the Game Boy Advance. 

Kon­a­mi has been list­ed as the pub­lish­er of the col­lec­tion, and M2 was list­ed as the devel­op­er. M2 has been port­ing retro games for years, and had pre­vi­ous­ly part­nered with Kon­a­mi to cre­ate the soft­ware for the Tur­bo­Grafx-16 Mini con­sole. M2 also devel­oped the Castl­e­va­nia Anniver­sary Col­lec­tion a few years back in 2019.

There has­n’t been a new Castl­e­va­nia title since Lords of Shad­ow 2, which released more than sev­en years ago.
