Classic Konami collections of games including Felix the Cat and Rocket Knight Adventures will be re-released in 2024, both physically and digitally.

As reported by Polygon, the Felix the Cat collection will include both the NES game and the Game Boy game, while what’s dubbed Rocket Knight Adventures: Re-Sparked will include Rocket Knight Adventures, Sparkster: Rocket Knight Adventures 2, and Sparkster. No release dates for either game were announced, though they’ll come to PlayStation 4 and 5 plus Nintendo Switch.

Physical editions will be released through Limited Run Games. Standard and Classic editions of Felix the Cat will be available (priced at $34.99 and $64.99 respectively), with the latter including a CD soundtrack, reversible poster, and NES-inspired packaging alongside the standard disc.

Rocket Knight Adventures: Re-Sparked will come in Standard, Classic, and Ultimate editions, priced at $34.99, $64.99, and $134.99 respectively. The Classic includes a CD soundtrack, reversible poster, steel book, and retro inspired packaging, while the Ultimate includes all this plus a Sparkster statuette, comic, design document collection, mini cartridge display case, and certificate of authenticity.

Further collections will be announced too, with another being revealed on February 24. Konami is also making various quality of life upgrades and other improvements.

“This release includes both the classic Nintendo Entertainment System title and the Game Boy title that was released a year later,” it said of the Felix the Cat collection. “Through Carbon Engine, and some help from Felix’s Magic Bag of Tricks, new features for the titles, including save states and other quality-of-life fixes, bring them into the modern era of gaming.”

Rocket Knight Adventures: Re-Sparked will also include a new animated intro from Studio Meala, a rewind feature, Boss Rush mode, and Museum mode featuring never before seen content.
