I’m buying all of them. It’s been my favorite franchise since I was a kid. Now my kids can play the same ones - and mock the silliness of them.

I actually think Kid Dracula is a cool inclusion for the Castlevania collection. Itís not one I really expected. Iím for sure going to get that collection.

Re: Konami 50th Anniversary Collection

What's that one that was only ever put out on the PC Engine in Japan? Has it never been ported to a US system?

Rondo of Blood, it came out for the PSP in the US ten years ago, 15 years after its initial release.

The Wii version was just on virtual console so no longer purchasable. It was $9 though.

    Huh. Are there big differences?
    And that still wouldn't include Rondo of Blood then, right?

    Re: Konami 50th Anniversary Collection

    and bought. thanks gtd. does it matter which game you start with? which is considered best?

    i loved and played only Symphony of Night, i believe, which is why i jumped on this, though not in this collection, but i think i have somehow on the One, and a little bit of Lords of Shadow which i know is totally different and 3D...

    Still waiting on update. Hopefully they add ability to change button layout but that maybe asking too much.
