[Switch] Castlevania Anniversary Collection, Contra Anniversary Collection - $7.50 Each (Were $30) @ Nintendo eShop


Happy New Year all!
Found these deals while looking for Contra game which is part of Nintendo new year sale I think.

Same price posted over a year ago but good for those who missed out or just get a switch like me.

    Thanks OP. Was looking for a way to play Contra Hard Corps on Switch. Soundtracks in that will bring back childhood memories!

    • Yep.. that startup music totally brings back my memories.😊

  • Megaman collections are also on sale (not quite as cheap).

    Any recommendations from people? Are any of them poorly emulated?

      The Castlevania and Contra collections were handled by M2, so you can expect the highest quality possible.

      • Nice. Thanks!

      Cheaper on Indiegala store at $4.50ish or Fanatical. Castlevania is even cheaper on both sites too.

      Obviously this post is about the Switch version though.

      Always use this site before buying anything from Steam.

        Was more a comment to let the PC master race know its also on the ultimate gaming system for cheap.

  • I think I passed contra once, in all my time playing it

    • I've managed to beat Contra without losing any lives. After playing for hours each day, you end up memorising where/when enemies approach. While the original will always be special, my favourite in the series is definitely Contra: Hard Corps.

      I'm still trying to beat Battletoads. I just can't get past the Rat Race level.

    Thanks op, I've wondered about the Castlevania series, good to see Nintendo have a web based store, welcome to 2010 Nintendo.

  • Is it the same arcade game Contra or modified version?

    • It is arcade game Contra and bundle so includes those below;

      Contra (Arcade)
      Super Contra
      Contra (NA)
      Contra (JP)
      Super C
      Contra III: The Alien Wars
      Operation C
      Contra Hard Corps
      Super Probotector Alien Rebels

  • PC version is also on sale.

    Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania & Contra = $6.39

    • That's not the same collection, and judging by the reviews it seems to have a number of issues.

      • Yes, kinda different but it is for PC. I think the original version of this was released in 2002 as a CDROM.

  • Does anyone know if switch has all the arcade games
    bundle like kinda old arcade 900 in 1 which has Super Mario Bros and Icelander , Pac-Man etc..

  • bought for memory. now looking for gamepad on switch, any suggestion for cheaper less $40 gamepad on amazon?
