In a new interview, it seems that management at Konami is thinking about bringing a new Castlevania game to the Nintendo Switch.
Konami will be half redeemed if that happens.
Afraid I'll be missing out on it or buying pre-owned.
Not putting money into that company with the stuff they've been doing.
Koji which was the mastermind behind CSOtn is making his own game ...Konami also has lost many devs and talents , its very dubious if the new castlevania will have any quality ..however i really hope to be wrong and they make smthinng worthy in order to continue the franchise on other consoles too
Its like Mel Gibson movies. I can't watch Mel Gibson movies anymore, just like I can't support Konami games as much as I'd love a new Castlevania. They've ruined that for me. Jim Sterling had it right with his hashtag.
Yet by most count, all they've done is a few steps below what companies like EA and Activision do. How they treat their employees.
Yes, I can see it now "Castlevania" pachinko machines. 🙄
Jim Fxxking Stirlingson is still right and we should thank God for him. 🙂
Hit the lever!
Konami is past the point of redemption
I don't believe or trust them at all.
I think they are irredeemable by now no matter why they do as much as I would love a new 2D Castlevania and new Suikoden game.
Meh if they put out a new CV like the older 8-16 bit games like they released a new Bomberman and started making Goemon or Gradius bringing back old series I'd be happy with them.
The only way Konami can half-redeem itself at this point is to tar and feather its entire board, and run them out of Tokyo on a bullet train. To redeem the other half, they'd need to issue apologies to their entire staff, past and present, including a fat check to everyone they have wronged.
without iga it wont be castlevania anymore, so no thanks konami.
we got bloodstrained coming
Iga didn't create the series. Castlevania existed before him. The NES games and Genesis and SNES games and one of the best ever with Rondo of Blood. They can make a game in those games style again and be fresh again. iga vania we have had so many of those ans as mentioned Bloodstained for more of that. We can have one without him and the older style.
i see,ty for the info
i started the series with SOTN
This is what folks should be looking forward to on Switch.
yep, sadly I had backed this for a Wii U version but will gladly change that over to a Switch copy. Thanks for the link EDMIX, I hadn't updated my survey yet, so this at least jogged my memory to do so. Cheers :)
Konami do this and you'll do this you won't get screwed by some demons. I know a dark guild that'll love you guys.
Put a new team that actually knows and loves the series on the job.
Not the jokers behind the latest big console versions.
Heck, just do a really killer sequel to Order of Ecclesia or Portrait of Ruin, and I'll be pleased and appeased.
"Put a new team that actually knows and loves the series on the job"
Agreed. But because they don't got jack left, I'd look out for Bloodstained more then what they do.
"Not the jokers behind the latest big console versions"
You mean the folks now making Metroid remake on 3DS?
Soooooooooo yea. Those jokers are now making a Metroid game. Thats a no buy from me clearly.
If the team sucks, no reason to buy. That goes for Metroid and the new Castlevania. Not getting hoodwinked into buying garbage by garbage teams. Name alone can't sell a game.
I agree. Put in a new PROVEN team and maybe I might care, but if its a crap team, I can't support such a thing unless I play it myself or hear glowing reviews.
I would agree with you on the Metroid game for 3DS, if it weren't for the fact that, unlike the 3D Castlevania reboots, they are following a pretty set template this time, since it's a remake and the gameplay previews proved to look decent.
It'd take a miracle for them to f*** up the Metroid 2 remake, but I'd never trust them with a new Castlevania.
Mercury steams 1st Castlevania game was amazing.
@wonder- lol that is the only thing that is literally making me even want to consider buying it is that it's a remake and how badly could they mess up something that's already been made?
Don't underestimate this team wonderful they could jack up any game lol
Calling it now, port of a new mobile game. I have no faith in Konami right now.
Bomberman R wasn't a port.
Konami should bring their A-game back, not just the Castlevania series! To be honest, although Bloodstained could use a bit more speed in its gameplay, I can see it giving me what Castlevania has not over the past few years. If Konami revives Silent Hill, and not just on the Switch, then I can finally welcome them back!
LOL! Whos going to make it?
Their best developers are gone now. I don't think I'd want any of the filth this publisher is making.
Stop praying to IPs and actually question the developers bud. The latest Castlevania's were just complete GARBAGE once that ace team left, simply coming out with a game called "Castlevania" doesn't change anything...
Soooo them making "Silent Hill" won't change jack bud. This publisher makes crap and in order for anyone to even trust those games, they actually need to be good in the first place.
Konami isn't getting those developers back bud...I just don't see that happening. I might like Metal Gear Solid, but I like the team that made it, not simply the name, the IP etc. That is meaningless if by a crap, garbage team.
ie the last several Castlevania games. Garbage team = Garbage game.
People believe Konami can still make a good Castlevania game? BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!
I love how one article has everyone boycotting, then this one saying they will overlook what they've done. Lol. Flip flop.
It'll be Castlevania Pachinko.
I know they will never let it go but they'd be much better off selling the IP to someone who actually cares about games, games, and the developers they employ instead of abusing them then blacklisting them.
Agreed. They might as well make some money off it while its still worth something as suppose to devaluing it by outsourcing it to crap teams.
I'd rather they just sell it to the publisher of the highest bidding. Seriously want this publisher to just sell its IPs and go into their whole Pachinko junk.
And I'm thinking of riding through a hurricane while juggling chainsaws on the back of a bazooka toting tiger with machine gun claws powered by the tears of children--I mean I could do it but I've got pachinko machines and cheap, outsourced tie ins to make.
??? LMFAO! Who cares? This garbage publisher. Is anyone even left there?
THIS is what I care about coming!!!!!!
Who will develop it though without KojiPro there aren't really any good internal devs left at Konami and I don't think there is a high profile dev that Konami is willing to work with that could do it justice.
wow I almost came in this thread and automatically said F konami had to watch myself lol
Castlevania Judgment 2
Dawn of Sorrow is still the best castlevania game. Sequel to that or a remake please
I would rather play Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night when it's released. It will probably be a better spiritual successor to the original Castlevania games than anything Konami can come up with now.
Well, there already are castlevania pachinko machines...
If its not 2D, im not interested.. If it is 2D and good, ill buy it day 1..
What is Konami but a miserable pile of secrets
That really doesn't help.
