Konami Working On Next-Gen Castlevania

By Spencer . October 9, 2008 . 3:10pm

cnext A representative from Konami revealed they have a third Castlevania game in development. The only information I could ascertain is it exists and it’s in development for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. I wonder if it will visually look like their Castlevania arcade game


Whatever this is, it probably won’t be a clone of Castlevania: The Arcade since you need to physically make whipping motions with the game’s controller and I doubt Konami is going to package this Castlevania game with a free LED whip.

    Let’s hope it’s a good one! The style of the DS titles has consistently delivered in terms of game play. We need more of that for the home consoles ^_^

  • i think they need to hire vanillaware. that would certainly work.

    I am probably the only person that actually liked all the 3D Castlevania games. Whatever it looks like, 2D, 3D, level based, metroidvania based, I will take whatever. Just please make it a Castlevania game Iga, not a fighting game.

    why couldn’t they have done this for the Wii instead of a … stupid battle game? geez!

    Why must we always be … mislead dammit. So they were doing other game, keeping it under wraps and saying well we’re focusing on this, hyping our secondary one prior just so they could come out and say “guess what, we didn’t give you what you obviously wanted, BUT! we gave it for those who didn’t ask” (who cares about castlevania out of Nintendo consoles?)

    Seriously… dumb attitude Konami, dumb attitude. And now that I know this I don’t think I’ll buy “castlevania judgement”.

    Gametrailers.com posted the new Castlevania trailer from TGS. Guess I lost some money.
