Castlevania Advanced Collection Gets Second Rating

One more rating pops up for the as-yet-unannounced Castlevania Advanced Collection.

The Castlevania Advanced Collection received a second rating, this time from the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee (thanks Destructoid). This follows an earlier rating from the Australian ratings board, so it's probably safe to assume an announcement will happen sometime in the next few months or sooner.

The Taiwanese rating was removed shortly after, but it confirmed what the Australian rating originally said.

The ratings don't say what the collection actually is, though the name is likely a pretty good indicator. Konami published Castlevania: Circle of the MoonCastlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow during the Game Boy Advance's lifetime. 

Presumably, the collection would include all three of these. It's possible Konami might exclude Aria or put it in another collection, though. Its direct sequel, Dawn of Sorrow was a Nintendo DS exclusive.

Nintendo usually hosts a Nintendo Direct in September, so a Castlevania Advanced Collection announcement could happen sometime this month. Meanwhile, we'll have to content ourselves with Castlevania soundtracks on Spotify.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
