Konami's Castlevania Anniversary Collection is heading to Xbox One on May 16th.

Konami's Castlevania Anniversary Collection traces the origins of the historic vampire franchise. Included is a unique eBook with details provided by developers, artists and others inspired by the Castlevania legacy which sheds a fresh light into the world of Castlevania.

Released as part of the Konami 50th Anniversary celebration, relive these timeless classics that helped define the platformer genre. From the Belmont clan to their extended bloodlines and allies, the Castlevania Anniversary Collection is the best first step for anyone to take into the world of Castlevania and the fight against Dracula!


The Castlevania Anniversary Collection includes:

  • Castlevania (NES) - Started all this monster-whipping, axe-throwing business back in 1986.

  • Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest (NES) - A black sheep at the time, its nonlinear, RPG-inspired mechanics would return fully formed in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

  • Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse (NES) - Scaled back the then-weirdness of Simon's Quest but kept some of the nonlinearity via branching paths.

  • Kid Dracula (NES) - The first time this self-parodying spinoff will make it outside of Japan, not to be confused with its Game Boy remake/followup that is also called Kid Dracula.

  • Castlevania: The Adventure (Game Boy) - This simplified version of the core jump-and-whip premise doesn't even have stairs, but the music remains killer.

  • Castlevania 2: Belmont's Revenge (Game Boy) - This is a sequel to Castlevania: The Adventure, not a different version of Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest.

  • Super Castlevania 4 (SNES) - You can whip in eight different directions. Now you're playing with Super Power!

  • Castlevania: Bloodlines (Sega Genesis) - The dripping blood and water effects were a visual tour-de-force at the time, now you can focus on the good ol' side-scrolling action.
