I wonder what happened to a lot of those guys. The last time the SotN team was together was Harmony of Dissonance, though Takeda Takashi did go on to direct both the PS2 games. The DS games were made by the AoS team (with Circle of the Moon's producer, KO-G, doing some map designs). I remember IGA saying that he'd need to get a lot of people together for a new Metroidvania, since of course it wasn't him alone. I guess that means we're gonna need Curry The Kid, since his name popped up in just about every Castlevania since Aria.

And of course Yamane (or Yuzo Koshiro) and Kojima (or Hirooka Masaki).

In case everyone's not totally up to speed, I wanted to forward an excellent synopsis post by Foffy over on the NeoGAF forums:

I think a synopsis is in order, seeing as I see a few users a little kerfuffled here, and being the 'vania mark I am, I will try and quickly summarize.

- Back in September of last year, this image(http://i.imgur.com/2skhMvu.jpg was teased at PAX, and the kind of details from the image give the vibe of one of Koji Igarashi's games.
- The runes in the pentagram imply the words "What A Wonderful Night To Have a KS", with KS assuming KickStarter.
- Koji Igarashi puts his dream game - assumingly this - on hold, back in September, with a KickStarter never seeing the light of day. Presumably, the project is dead.
- On May 1st, Quarterwoman, a Twitter account referenced on the back of that original teaser, posts tweets (https://twitter.com/Quarterwomann) all of a sudden, referencing elements from the original teaser, such as the pentagram, the moon, and the reference to 'gold and lead'; a key element, as the character of the game apparently is an alchemist.
- Also on May 1st, an image split into two images was posted on two Castlevania fan forums, the Castlevania Dungeon, and Chapel of Resonance. The user, going by the name IGAVANIA, posts the following quote:
The first sign rises with the full moon.
Soon, I will return.
- Combining the two images, it reveals the original pentagram back in September, complete with a sword on the leftmost image, and a whip on the rightmost image.

- May 1st was the original release date for Castlevania in North America.
- The next full moon is on Monday, May 4th.


This is the story so far, and I hope it gives users a fuller picture of the scenario here. Some of this may be coincidental, but the timing seems awfully odd for all of this to be the work of one fan.


My body is ready. Seriously, IGA, if you're behind this, I'm so ready to give you tons of my money to make what ever dream you have a reality.

I am also ready to back the kickstarter project! It better not be a work of fan because I also cannot bear more disappointments with Castlevania. If this is a fan toying with us, it is very cruel. If it is IGA for real, it would be a dream come true!

Oh hey Foffy! Thanks for helping guide the discussion! I'm right there with you... I feel like we could be witnessing the return of a long lost but magnificence saga!

Hello IGAVANIA, welcome to the dungeon  ;)

Oh my Gooooood. So this really is related to the PAX tease, not a fan aping the idea to create artificial hype.

Stop teasing, announce something already. Don't feed the hype, we're already hyped.

I'm positively over the moon with all these hints. I've been dying for any sort of true CV successor for years now.. Getting tired of replaying my DS games.
