If it DOES happen to be Castlevania I cannot wait for the complaining to switch from

 

"When are you guys putting up pre-orders for Castlevania?"

 

to

 

"I just ordered Castlevania last week, why don't I have it yet?"

I just hope it's a pre-order rather than a limited number.  Gives me sometime to mull over if I really want to give Konami that money.

Do people already have an idea of which Castlevania game it is? I'm not familiar enough with the games before SotN to know if that specific refence for a specific game in the series since I'm pretty sure multiple games had food hidden in the wall to recover health. 

 

Also, one of these days, I need to replay Casltevania 64. I know it was panned by most, but I loved it as a kid. I know it won't hold up but I still enjoy firing up old games for short bits.

You can toggle between the US and JP versions of the games too, so you get that sweet, sweet Akumajou Densetsu soundtrack

This has to be my most wanted physical release - I've wanted a Castlevania collection forever.  Stings a little that Konami didn't include the SNES and PC Engine versions of Dracula X on there, but I guess it's close enough.

I suppose Dracula X ties in conveniently with Rondo of Blood, and Rondo ties in conveniently with Symphony of the Night, which itself ties in conveniently with the rest of the IGA games. So really what we need is a second Castlevania collection.

There are A LOT of replica boxes in that ultimate edition. Also the only one with a steelbook. Also also immediate confusion if the Classic and Bloodlines editions are available for both platforms. Ugh.

 

That poster is amazing though. I wish it wasn't reversible so both sides could be seen at once.

Classic = NES-style outer box

Bloodlines = Genesis-style outer box

 

And yes, both versions will be for both platforms.

Awesome, glad there is a long pre-order window too.  Definitely want to get one of the Castlevania collections and Sam & Max!

It's gonna be damn near $200 after tax and shipping for that Ultimate Edition.

Thanks Vigilante.

$35... plus shipping and tax... I might bite on it.  Still have a couple weeks before it's live.

So much extra garbage IMHO in that ultimate edition. I think I got both that and the Contra Collection for $5 digitally...kind of gets me to want to play them though. Good games for sure though.

Thanks for clarifying!

 

Though, this happens frequently enough that you'd think LRG would learn to clarify themselves upon announcements. I know that's asking too much of them, but still.

One of the rare LRG CEs where I don't consider the extra stuff "garbage".   In fact, if I could have designed my "dream" CE for this release, they pretty much nailed it exactly.  Box replicas?  Finally.   For a company that seems to have been against replicating original box designs (see - Star Wars CEs), I can't believe they went all-in on my most wanted release. 

 

Tomorrow is going to be an expensive day.

Sadly, that's probably a good estimate for the CE.  If you just want the standard edition it will probably be available in 3-5 months after the preorders end though.

If you want Sam and Max, yeah.  Castlevania Collection wont go up for sale until May 14th though.

I didn't even notice that - I still had LRG's tease for it (which I just saw today and didn't notice they posted it yesterday) with the word "tomorrow" in my head.

You try to stay out. You want to spend less. And when they're cranking out Kemco RPGs, it's a lot easier to stay away. But sooner or later, they drop something that you JUST...CAN'T.......RESIST!

 

I'm going to hold back and probably settle for a single copy of the standard edition. It's just a matter of picking a platform for me. I already bought this collection digitally for the PS4, so possibly the Switch version. I've been staying away from collectors editions and their associated extras for quite some time now. These are very appealing collectors editions, but I have to draw the line somewhere.

 

I would love to see a physical release of the Rondo/Symphony combo that came out. But I'm fairly certain that one is PS4 exclusive. Doesn't mean it won't happen, but I could see it being a lower priority.

Jesus, $175 for the Ultimate Edition!?!  As much as I like a steelbook, not for $140 more.  I will admit though at least this one is kind of tempting.  Most of their top end CEs aren't interesting, but the box replicas, nice.  Even the shadow box picture thing is kind of cool just because it's different & it's something I haven't seen before.  Still not enough for me to justify spending that amount but at least this one is a step up.

I want it.  But I also have much better things to buy for that kind of money. 

 

People are blinded by nostalgia.   Give me actual well-made Castlevania art prints that I can frame for that kind of money; I'd rather have that.  This is a bunch of paper boxes for $175, and you have to spend that much in order to get the steelbook.

Out of all of their CE contents, I really only want the game and the steelbook. It's a shame that there isn't just some steelbook edition for people to buy.
