Our Take
I didn't really become a Castlevania fan until Symphony of the Night, so this collection isn't doing much for me personally. But I am glad it exists this way because it means a potential future Castlevania Anniversary Collection follow-up would probably focus more on the Koji Igarashi era of Castlevania. I would be annoyed if it spread that era of Castlevania games across more than one bundle. My dream bundle? Symphony of the night, all the GBA Castlevanias, and all the DS Castlevanias. They could call it the Kyle's Very Specific Taste In Only Certain Castlevania Games Collection. They would have at least one guaranteed sale.
