    The Arcade Collections seems... underwhelming, to be honest. I have high hopes for the Castlevania and Contra ones, though, if only for the fact I could see the GBA-DS titles popping up there. I really want to get Order of Ecclesia on the Switch...

    I would love that too!! Maybe Konami should make a Yugioh collection, possibly port the GBA ones to be able to play on Switch/PS4/XB1

    Also....no Ninja Turtles, no buy.



    One thing that I'm completely perplexed by (I've seen the demand for it on both Twitter and NintendoLife) is the demand that Castlevania Adventure Rebirth be included. Why would people want an average remake of a below average game over a fantastic, underrated game that has only been released ONCE (Bloodlines)? I remember playing through Rebirth years ago, and immediately forgetting everything about it. I haven't played Bloodlines in fifteen years, but I remember everything, from the bosses to the levels to the music.



    On the radar.

    Because that one was never released in a physical form and is not available to buy now that the Wiiware service has closed.
