Particulars are slim for the time being, however Konami has confirmed that the gathering might be receiving an replace that may allow gamers to play “Japanese title variants” of the Castlevania titles. It can come “shortly after launch,” although that’s all the knowledge we now have for the time being.
It’s not fully clear what precisely this wording means, although it seems to easily point out that it’s going to give gamers the choice to play the variations of the Castlevania video games that launched in Japan. Whereas the Japanese and Western releases are primarily the identical, there are some notable variations between the 2. The Castlevania video games, as was frequent within the NES days, had been typically censored for his or her Western releases, taking away issues like non secular imagery and violence, for instance.
Castlevania and Castlevania II had been additionally initially developed for the Famicon Disc System (which by no means launched outdoors of Japan), which allowed for issues like save methods and enhanced musical tracks. If something, this replace may merely change the interpretation to make it extra in-line with the unique.

CastlevaniaCastlevania II: Simon’s QuestCastlevaia III: Dracula’s CurseSuper Castlevania IVKid DraculaCastlevania: The AdventureCastlevania II: Belmont’s RevengeCastlevania Bloodlines
It needs to be famous that that is the primary time Child Dracula (the NES model, not the Recreation Boy model) might be launched outdoors Japan, so technically that is the Japanese model of that title, at the very least.
The Castlevania Anniversary Assortment might be launched on Could 16, 2019 for the PlayStation four, Xbox One, Nintendo Swap, and PC.
