Castlevania director says fans need to speak up about a new game

Konami’s Castlevania has been talked about a lot lately. And thankfully for all the right reasons! The Castlevania Advanced Collection has brought some of the best games in the series to modern players. The animated show on Netflix has gotten rave reviews from fans and critics as well. With all the momentum, it would seem time to make a new game in the franchise! Right?

In an interview with Axios, Yota Tsutsumizaki, the director of the mobile entry Castlevania: Grimoire Of Souls, was blunt in his assessment of the future.

I think it depends on what our users say.

Short, but honest. The last main entry in the series, 2014’s Lords Of Shadow 2, wasn’t a critical and commercial success. It doesn’t help either that the main head of the series for years, Koji ‘IGA’ Igarashi, left Konami in 2014 after creative disputes. Only to turn around and give players a spiritual successor to the series in Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night. Having a new team take a crack at the Castlevania formula could be interesting. Given how the Metroidvania formula is still popular with gamers, the idea of the series coming back to its 2D roots isn’t absurd.

For now, it seems like fans’ best bet for a new entry is to make sure Castlevania Advance Collection sells well. So let me do my part as well! Go buy that game. Now. It’s some of the best Metroidvanias ever made for only $20. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
