Video game ratings board Australian Classification has potentially spilt the beans on a brand new Castlevania project. A new rating suggests that ‘Castlevania Anniversary Collection‘ is soon to be released as a “multi-platform” game.
Of course, no such game has been officially announced at this stage with that title (last year saw the launch of Castlevania Requiem on other platforms, which included two games in one, but Konami has previously said that it has “absolutely no plans” to release it on other systems). This sounds like it could be something new entirely.
The rating shows that it has gained a PG classification and features “mild fantasy themes and violence” – so no surprise there, then. It’s worth noting, though, that “multi-platform” doesn’t necessarily mean that Switch would be included – there have been plenty of times over the last couple of years where multi-platform has actually meant PS4, Xbox, and PC. Still, the recent Belmont content in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has us hopeful that new Castlevania games could well arrive on Switch.
So, what will this Anniversary Collection be? Will it launch in September, on the 33rd anniversary of the original game on NES? We’ll let you guess away in the comments.
