Nintendo Switch may soon get some of Nintendo Game Boy Advance’s best games

It looks like Nintendo Switch is getting some of the best Nintendo Game Boy Advance games soon. The Nintendo Game Boy family of consoles offers some amazing games, many of which are stuck on the handheld family of consoles. However, it looks like three great games from this Nintendo era are coming to Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, and possibly other modern platforms, thanks to Konami.

In the modern era, Konami is best known for Solid metal gear, PES, and pachinko machines. However, there was a time when he dominated the industry between Solid metal gear, Contra, Castlevania, and other IP addresses with which it has been done a minimum lately. That said, for the past year or two, Konami has shown interest in not just re-releasing games, but reviving some of its classic IPs.

Fast forward to today, and the Australian Classification – the agency that rates video games for release in Australia – has rated Castlevania Advanced Collection. What is Castlevania Advanced Collection? Well, for starters, that’s something Konami hasn’t announced. In other words, the Australian classification has just spilled the wick. Meanwhile, the collection itself is probably the trio of Castlevania games released for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance, or so “Advance Collection” suggests.

For those who don’t know: Castlevania: Circle of the Moon Was the first Castlevania game on Nintendo Game Boy Advance, released in 2001 to 91 on Metacritic. One year later, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance released at an 87 on Metacritic. And then the third and final of those games was Castlevania: Aria of Sorrowwhich in 2003 reached a 91 on Metacritic.

To date, the games have only been available through the Nintendo Game Boy Advance, less Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, which was eventually ported to mobile phones. Because of this, it’s assumed that this collection would be for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, but it’s entirely possible that these games will be heading to other platforms as well.

As of press time, Konami has not commented on any of this. We don’t expect that to change, but if it does, we’ll update the story accordingly. That said, not only does this rating suggest that an official announcement is fairly imminent, but that a release isn’t too far off either.
