    Wonder why Symphony of The Night has never been on Nintendo.

    Kid Dracula was one of my childhood games. Played it with my mom Super Game Boy all the time.

    Would be nice to remaster Aria of Sorrow, Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclesia

    But that's none of my business.

    Hahaha damn, I called it.

    No Symphony f the Night, but they gave us Kid Dracula instead. xD
    And to think that I thought about that as a mere joke haha.
    Good play, Konami.

    I am a huge fan of Castlevania but not for those consoles.. Lazy!! COME ON! I will make better one.. Below:

    ThumbsDownEmoji.


    I prefer the list for 50th anniversary -

    Castlevania Lords of Shadow 1
    Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2
    Castlevania Requiem
    Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles
    Castlevania: Lament of Innocence
    Castlevania: Curse of Darkness
    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate re-release
    Castlevania: Bloodlines (SEGA Genesis only but for Stream/XBOXone/PS4 and Switch - perfect)

    Those are best list should be for Nintendo Switch/PS4/ XBOXone/ and Stream.

    Nice!
    Here's to hoping there's a Vol.II that collects SotN, Rondo, the GBA and DS games. The LoS games are BC on XBO, so aside from the 64 games, we'd be about covered in playing these on modern hardware.

    Oh, don't get me wrong: I'm not saying it's a bad game (I'll be honest : I've never heard of it). It's just... What is it doing in this castlevania collection?

    Akumajou Densetsu 3 has the VRC-6/MMC audio chip and adds a few additional sound channels. US NES version sounds boring.

    Well, fud. I forgot about Lament...and Curse...
    Yes, those would be great to have on modern systems as well! A three volume collection is really what it would take, but Konami.

    They famously tried for Wiiware but just couldn't fit the game into the 50MB limit.. I'm sure we'll see it somewhere down the line on Switch, suppose it might depend on how well the Switch version of this sells.

    Not a bad list for me, this... I'm old enough to have been a kid when the first Castlevania came out for the NES: it honestly holds a place in my heart almost on a par with SMB1... [The Japanese version of] 3 is also great, and Super Castlevania IV will always be my fave game in the franchise - there I said it (and DAMN, that soundtrack on it! :wub:) . Again would prefer the Japanese version of that: removing the blood, and hilariously replacing it with green ooze, Turtles style, in the Dungeon level, eww!

    ......but anyway, I've got several ways of playing these games already, so not buying this. Like has been already said the 'wildcard' entry of Famicom Kid Dracula is just not good enough - Wiiware Rebirth would've been a far more tempting option. No thanks!
