Castlevania Advance Collection Rated In Australia

Castlevania Advance Collection

An Australian rating has surfaced for Castlevania Advance Collection. The government website for the Australian Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, and Communications listed the video game as multi-platform. The website classified the rating on June 18, 2021. [Thanks, Nibel!]

The government website confirms the applicant and publisher as Konami Digital Entertainment. In addition to Japanese and English language support, the listing rates the title with an M. Unfortunately, there aren’t many more concrete details. Fans might recall the Castlevania games Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, and Aria of Sorrow all released on the Game Boy Advance from 2001 to 2003.

In recent years, Konami has released compilations of some of its legacy titles, such as Contra Anniversary Collection. In regards to its Dracula-slaying series, Konami put out a two-pack of Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night on the PS4 titled Castlevania Requiem. Notably, Castlevania Anniversary Collection also launched in May 2019 on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. That compilation featured eight entries in the series, from NES to Game Boy, Genesis, and SNES titles. If Castlevania Advance Collection is similar to Konami’s recent efforts, we could see the three Game Boy Advance in a single release.

The Australian rating board revealed Castlevania Advance Collection on June 18, 2021. Additionally, Konami’s Netflix-produced anime adaptation of the series will continue with Richter Belmont.
