It's digital only so we'll get it the same day from Konami.

I'll be grabbing all 3 packs for sure, I haven't even played most of them honestly.

That arcade classics collection is some collection, every game bar one is a shmup, so if you're not a fan of shmups you're shit out of luck...luckily I am though.

I want a Suikoden collection!

But I'm happy enough with Castlevania. Been nice to eventually see the GBA titles. Have a lot of memories playing them!

How is it possible they left out Contra Hard Corps, The most badass Contra game ever made.

I second that! That game was a gem, and played just as good (and in some respects better) as the Gradius series.

If it was a physical release (even at say $50 for all three), I think I would be way more interested. Digital only releases rarely excite me anymore. So hence, I'll probably wait for some deep sale and then snag at least Castlevania.

Why don't you just open the store on your Xbox One and buy it then ;) it's backwards compatible.

But yeah, good list of games, but Sunset Riders , Rondo of Blood, Gradius V and all the Parodius games would be nice, but maybe they will add some more in the future.

As with the Castlevania collection, there's another 4 games yet to be announced for the Contra pack so keep your fingers crossed!

If you read closely, you will notice it says that only 4 of the 8 games in that collection have been revealed, so there's still a possibility that Hard Corps is included
