I dunno about you peeps, but I'm predicting a Halloween-ish release date for this compilation.  It wouldn't be the first time Konami put out a CV around Halloween.  And if that's the case, we should be getting a release announcement in the next few weeks.
Very true.  This and/or Grimiore of Souls this Halloween season.

I mean, I have to imagine the thing holding back DS ports (at least mechanically) is the second screen features. Even if you included a toggle key to switch your active "display", Dawn has the Boss Seals and Portrait and Ecclesia both have unlockable characters who are literally unplayable without a touchscreen, which gaming PCs and Playstations and Xboxes and Switches in Docked Mode tend not to have.

GBA is easy to emulate for literally everything out there that can play games at all, and thus MUCH easier to slap into a collection for a quick, Halloween timed release.

I do hope someone can port the DS 'vanias with a workaround for all the issues the Dual Screen nature of the original hardware causes.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

If they do want to re-release DS Vania titles I believe it's only a matter of time till the technical issues are eventually solved. Capcom's Mega Man ZX Legacy Collection has already dealt with the removal/tweak of touch screen features.
But it's still an imaginable Hell if the deal indeed is to use right stick to emulate touch screen control. I've been told that the emulated controls of Model P touch screen kunai were pretty bad.

This is why it was so maddenning the Wii U died before the DS games got a chance to get ported.  But you know, the Switch is an aging system now.  Maybe its successor will have some kind of dual screen capability?

Gosh I miss the Wii U’s capability.  Sure they added a lot when they enabled the Switch to go 100% portable.  But they also lost a lot when they got rid of the ability to communicate with the docking station wirelessly.  I really hope they get back that capability next time.  Oh, and while they’re at it, develop a wireless Wii sensor bar so we can play old Wii ports, such as Judgment, the original way.

As of today, the game has been rated for all four platforms, with the Taiwanese rating board confirming a Switch release

oo, more leaks, this time with a cover photo showing Nathan, Juste, and Soma, as well as the US region.

Of course maybe they just made up their own placeholder cover in anticipation that the game might come out.  You know, it would be kind of odd to call it the Advance Collection if it came to non-Nintendo platforms.  Are Microsoft/Sony ok with this?

We are talking about playasia who is listing anything for pre-order and some times it never ever becomes available, so i would wait for the official announcement and take this picture with a grain of salt.

Well, crap.  That just about confirms it's just the GBA titles.  I'll still buy it and play it to death of course.  But I was really hoping it would include the DS games too.

Wait. There's rumor that Dracula XX would come along with the GBA titles. Any confirmation about it?

Dracula XX sounds like a weird choice anyway. They could make more generally acceptable choices like porting the ORIGINAL ORIGINAL Akumajo Dracula X68000, or Castlevania Rebirth.

a very weird choice, ha.  Legends would make more sense, being a handheld title that didn’t make it in the Anniversary Collection.

Well this is Konami we're talking about here. They haven't been making smart decisions for quite some time now. Dracula XX could've been released as part of Requiem or as mentioned before in another thread, The Dracula X Chronicles. And that was the one thing I noticed about the Anniversary collection. There was no CV Legends. They could've bundled that game with the collection instead of Kid Dracula. I wouldn't have minded honestly.

I didn't really see any cool extra goodies like the first collection had. There's some artwork and a music player but not behind the scenes and concepts like the first one had.
