Castlevania Anniversary Collection Limited Ultimate Edition physical preorder Limited Run Games

Limited Run Games has suddenly announced a multitude of special physical versions for the 2019 Konami release, Castlevania Anniversary Collection, on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. On Friday, May 14 at 10 a.m. ET, preorders will begin for Castlevania Anniversary Collection standard, Classic, Bloodlines, and Ultimate physical editions at Limited Run, containing a wide variety of wild extras.

Obviously, the $34.99 standard version is just the game in the box, no extras. The $59.99 Classic Edition tosses in an original soundtrack CD, reversible poster, and NES-style dust sleeve in a retro-flavored box with metallic ink. The $59.99 Bloodlines Edition is largely the same except replaces the sleeve and box with a deluxe clamshell case, mimicking the style of Sega Genesis games and Castlevania Bloodlines.

Lastly, Limited Run’s titanic $174.99 Castlevania Anniversary Collection Ultimate Edition contains all the aforementioned extras, plus a “shadow box with lights and sound,” a SteelBook case, a miniature replica collection of Castlevania boxes, retro box art prints, and The History of Castlevania: Book of the Crescent Moon. That sounds spectacular if you can stomach the price tag. In any case, all versions will be available on both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

I’ve heard some mixed things over time about Limited Run Games’ reliability with delivering goods in a timely manner, but there’s no denying the value in these physical versions of Castlevania Anniversary Collection, especially with that Ultimate Edition.
