Physical Castlevania collections coming to Limited Run Games

Fans of Konami’s iconic Castlevania series will have the opportunity to add some excellent-looking new physical editions to their collections this month.

Sink your fangs into this

When you talk about classic IP’s, they don’t get much more iconic than Castlevania. Originally appearing on the NES in 1987 (in the US), Castlevania has spawned a ton of well-regarded titles, and a few legendary ones.

If you’re a fan, then you already know that the Castlevania Anniversary Collection brought together a bunch of those, when it appeared last year. The bundle though, was purely digital. Or at least, it was. Limited Run Games has picked up the fanged-baton, and will be serving up a few tasty-looking boxed editions later this month.

A trio of editions will arrive on the 14th of this month. Those range from a version that includes just the base game(s), to a mammoth set, packed with content and extras.

The Bloodlines Edition includes a deluxe clamshell case, an original soundtrack and a reversible 18- x 24-inch poster. The Classic Edition includes everything in the Bloodlines Edition but includes a NES dust sleeve and comes housed in a Classic NES-style retro box in place of the clamshell. For the ultimate Castlevania fan who craves both outer box variations, we’ve whipped up the Castlevania Anniversary Collection Ultimate Edition which includes a shadow box that lights up and plays music, retro box art prints, a SteelBook, a collection of miniature replica boxes, a Castlevania logo enamel pin, a copy of “The History of Castlevania: Book of the Crescent Moon,” an original soundtrack, reversible poster, both the classic and clamshell cases, and a retro dust sleeve.
