Frontier Aja Whips Up Doujin Style Castlevania

Recommended Videos

Speaking of being inspired, indie developer Frontier Aja looked at Castlevania while developing Koumajou Densetsu: Scarlet Symphony, an upcoming PC title scheduled to debut this weekend at Comiket 76. (Thanks for the tip Destron Prime!!)


This video does a fantastic job explaining Koumajou Densetsu: Scarlet Symphony. It even covers little quirks about hit boxes so I’ll let it take you through the game. I just want to explain a reference that might fly over your head. The main character, Reimu Hakurei, is part of a series of doujin or hobby developed Japanese games. She’s a key character in the Touhou Project, which includes a bunch of PC shoot ’em ups like Mountain of Faith from Team Shanghai Alice.
