The Australian Classification board leaked the Konami Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection at the start of the month and that has now been confirmed along with two other collections, one featuring Castlevania games and the other packed with Contra titles.
The Arcade Classics pack, which is out on April 18th, features Haunted Castle (an arcade version of the first Castlevania game), Typhoon (A-Jax), Nemesis (Gradius), Vulcan Venture (Gradius II), Life Force (Salamander), Thunder Cross, Scramble, and Twin Bee.
The Castlevania collection arrives later this summer with Castlevania (NES), Castlevania 2: Belmont’s Revenge (Game Boy), Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse (NES), and Super Castlevania 4 (Super NES), plus four other unannounced Castlevania titles. The Contra collection will also have eight games, four of which have been revealed as Contra (arcade), Super Contra (arcade), Super C (NES), and Contra 3: The Alien Wars (Super NES).
Each pack will also come with a digital book with design sketches and interviews, and will be available on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Switch.
