The veritable onslaught of Limited Run Games releases can sometimes be overwhelming, but when something this special comes along a moment of pause is required. Konami used to be a powerhouse developer, but in recent times the company has become a shell of itself. While the wait for a new Castlevania game has been interminable, fans were at least thrown a bone in the form of the delectable Castlevania Anniversary Collection which launched a couple of years ago. The compilation contains the following games:

  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II Simon’s Quest
  • Castlevania III Dracula’s Curse
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Castlevania The Adventure
  • Castlevania II Belmont’s Revenge
  • Castlevania Bloodlines
  • Kid Dracula

Not bad, eh? Up until now, however, Castlevania Anniversary Collection has only been available via the eShop. This is where LRG comes in:

Here’s a look at that Ultimate edition:

The contents of the Ultimate edition are as follows:

  • Castlevania Anniversary Collection Classic Edition
    • Switch Limited Run #106: Castlevania Anniversary Collection
    • Throwback NES-Style Konami Silver Box printed with Metallic Silver Ink to perfectly match your retro boxes. This box features all-new art from legendary Konami cover artist Tom duBois.
    • Retro NES-Style Dust Sleeve sized to fit your game case.
    • Physical Soundtrack CD featuring selected tracks from the games included in the Castlevania Anniversary Collection
    • Reversible 18- by 24-inch Poster
  • Castlevania Anniversary Collection Bloodlines Edition Plastic Clamshell Case
  • Physical “The History of Castlevania: Book of the Crescent Moon” Book
  • Miniature Replica Box Collection featuring all eight games from the Castlevania Anniversary Collection
  • Three Premium Retro Box Art Prints
  • Castlevania Logo Enamel Pin
  • Official Nintendo Switch Sized SteelBook Case
  • Shadow Box featuring Tom duBois’ stunning new art with button activated lights and sound.
  • Premium die-cut box allows you to showcase the shadowbox even if the game remains sealed.

Pretty awesome stuff here for a fanbase that has overall been neglected for quite some time. Maybe if this sells well enough it will get Konami to work on a new Castlevania installment? Who knows, but if nothing else this will be quite the addition to any fan’s collection. The pre-order window opens on May 14 and will run for an extended six-week period (usually it’s four). You can pre-order here.
