It’s Konami’s 50th birthday and the company is celebrating it with a bang. Konami has announced three new compilations based on its classic and early arcade games which will be released for modern consoles. These include Castlevania, Contra, and several arcade games. The compilations will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and via Steam for Windows PC.

Arcade Classics is the first collection which includes some of Konami’s hit games from the 1980s. The list features A-Jax, Haunted Castle, Gradius 2, Life Force, Scramble, Thunder Cross, and Twin Bee. It will go on sale through digital stores on April 18th for $20.

Contra: Anniversary Collection will be available in early summer this year. There will be eight titles in this compilation which include Contra and Super Contra for arcade, Super C for NES, and Contra 3: The Alien Wars for Super NES.

Finally, the Castlevania: Anniversary Collection will also be available with eight titles in early summer. The four that have been confirmed so far include Castlevania and Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse for NES, Castlevania 2: Belmont’s Revenge for Game Boy, and Super Castlevania 4 for Super NES.

All of these collections will also have a digital book with behind-the-scene notes, design sketches that have never been released before, and interviews with the people involved in the development of these titles.
