At this point, it seems that the Castlevania Advance Collection is likely coming to the Switch and a number of other platforms. Furthermore, this isn’t the first time it has popped up. In this case, Gematsu has reported that the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee rated Castlevania Advance Collection not just for Nintendo Switch, but also for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. However, the listing has since been removed. It is thought the collection would include the trio of Game Boy Advance titles Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow.
According to Eurogamer, back in June, the Australian ratings board listed it with M2 as the developer, and of course had the publisher as Konami. No platforms were specified, though. Regardless, M2 would make sense, as they are the ones who made the 2019 Castlevania Anniversary Collection. In fact, the Japanese studio specializes in ports. That title happens to be available on the same four platforms as mentioned above for Castlevania Advance Collection. Anyway, a week after that Australian blip, the collection appeared again, this time in Korea. In that case, it was described as “a PC action game composed of games from the Castlevania series”.
It is looking likely that Konami will announce the Castlevania Advance Collection sooner than later. Only time will tell. If it does materialize, players will be able to relive the GBA adventures on new platforms like the Nintendo Switch. It would also give players who missed the games during the GBA era a chance to experience them easily, all in one place. However, it’s worth noting that the trio of games were all re-released as Wii U Virtual Console titles as well.
