Koji Igarashi's Castlevania Successor Could Rise From The Grave This Week

Hopefully it's a traditional 2D game in the style of Symphony of the Night. I could see something like that being a huge success on Kickstarter given the talent involved, and I also think it's something fans have been craving for a long time now.

That's not to say that a 3D game couldn't work, since games like Bloodborne prove that it can be executed correctly, but a traditional 2D game really would be nice in my opinion.

Spiritual successors seems to be the new thing these days.

Sadly that's because usually the publisher most likely owns the rights to the creators game and they no longer work at the company.

Make a Metroidvania game with 2d HD art like the Guilty Gear series and i'm SO sold, that's the castlevania game we need and deserve.
