In an interview with 1UP at the Tokyo Game Show last weekend, Koji Igarashi, the lead mind behind recent and current Castlevania titles, illuminated some of Konami's plans for its vampi-rific franchise in the next generation.
That would be sweet! I am playing Dawn of Sorrow right now and would love to see a next-gen Castlevania hit my beloved 360! Not to metion the FACT that they are putting Symphony of the Night on XBLA, makes me giddy like a school girl. :)
i love vampire games.
is on my top 10 best games played list. To make the list these games have to involve strong, Gameplay, visuals, Music and Storyline. I'm actually playing curse of Darkness on the Xbox , I guess its alright. I wouldn't mind a 2D one tho. I getting sick of the failed attemps of a 3D castlevania, where they sacrifce gameplay buy running through a giant empty castle.
I guess no one believes in 2D anymore.
Can you imagine what 2D could look like with present technology!?
I agree, I do still play from time to time SOTN on my PS2 or my Xbox..can't get enough of the music from this game
I've been saying the same thing. Well I'm an avid RPG soundtrack music collector and remixes and that was one of the best soundtracks for a game. Wierd I also like the final fantasy series tracks. Nobou Umetsu's music has been incredible.He is working on Lost Oddyssy too.
I didn't know he was working on this one...looks like I'll be buying a 360 as well...
Hironobu Sakaguchi, the former top Squaresoft designer and creator of Final Fantasy, is the mastermind of both games; Akira Toriyama, artist of Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Quest, Japan's top-selling comic book series of all-time and top-selling videogame series of all-time, designed the characters in Blue Dragon; Takehiko Inoue, artist of Vagabond, a current best-selling manga of steady maturity, designed the characters for Lost Odyssey; Nobuo Uematsu, composer of the music for the most beloved installments of the Final Fantasy series, is composing the music for both games."
Ever heard of Chris Hülsbeck? Turrican on the Amiga. That was great chip music even on the C64...with only 4 voices in those days. What will nextgen brings this time around?
Here's a hint, Konami, your 3D castlevanias have sucked. You cancelled the dreamcast version only to release a series of bland 3D action games. Meanwhile, the VAST majority of your fan base clamors for a sequel to SOTN because it was such an excellent game.
Maybe for ONCE you can try taking a chance by releasing the game that the public actually responded to, rather than trying to expand your audience by creating a generic 3D slasher.
Please just make a 2D game...I don't care if you make it 3D style like Clockwork Knight, but just take the control scheme and RPG elements from SOTN and recycle them.
I still can't figure out how you could take what is widely regarded as one of the best games of all time and not follow it up with a game of the same style, especially given the huge success of the GBA 2D platformers.
