That long-rumored project
Koji Igarashi (also known as “IGA”) is one of the most talented developers out there, partially credited with the success of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and the continued rise of the franchise after that point. In 2014 though he left Konami, and fans highly suspected a Castlevania-like follow-up.
Now, we seem to have our first hint, as a new teaser site called “swordorwhip.com” has opened. We’ve heard rumors of an IGA Kickstarter for quite a while, and this pretty much seals the deal. Go vote for your favorite weapon and sit tight as we wait for more news.
Tapping into nostalgia for retro-themed Kickstarter projects seems to be working out quite well lately. The Banjo-KazooiesuccessorYooka-Layleesmashed its stretch goals, as did the Mega Man-like Mighty No. 9. I suspect that a full-on classic return to formCastlevaniaindie project (and not the polarizing 3D reboot) would do very well.
So what did I vote? My boy Alucard rocks the sword — sorry Belmont clan.
