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.
