DISCUSSION

Doubt Konami’s gonna want to put any extra work that would be necessary to put any of the DS games on this thing, nor would they want to go with the 3D games in any capacity, so I’m guessing the remaining 4 games for the CV collection will be:

-Rondo of Blood

-Symphony of the Night

-The Adventure Rebirth

-Aria of Sorrow
