Dubbed the Anniversary Collection, each pack contains loads of classic games to choose from. The Arcade collection, releasing first on April 18 for US$19.99, will include Gradius I and II, Life Force/Salamander, Twinbee, Scramble, Thunder Cross, Haunted Castle, and Typhoon/A-Jax.

After that, fans can expect to see the Castlevania Collection make its debut this summer and that will include eight of the Castlevania games including Castlevania 1 through to 4. Much like Castlevania, the next four games included are likely to be more classic titles from the series from the late 90s - which might disappoint fans of Contra's PS2 outings. The bundle comes with the arcade versions of the original Contra, and Super Contra, as well as Super C, and Contra 3: The Alien Wars.
