Let’s get one thing straight; when I mention Castlevania in this opinion piece, I don’t mean another entry in the Lords of Shadows series. I mean a possible 2D side-scrolling game that Konami did so well with on the DS entries in the mid 2000’s; Dawn of Sorrow, Curse of Darkness, and Portrait of Ruin. There wasn’t been a Castlevania game like that in close to six years at this point, and my hope is that there will be one announced for the new Nintendo system whenever that releases.
I probably shouldn’t keep my hopes up to much as Konami has stated that they were going to focus more on their arcade machines than console games. Konami doesn’t really have a lot of console titles compared to other companies, I just hope that they see the benefit of making a new Castlevania that old school gamers would clamor for, and for new gamers to enjoy.
