A lot of current anime have weird/useless collaborations in Japan and that's fine by me. It satiates the fans and give stuff for the hard core ones to do (like collecting those coasters/ whatever that they give out in collaboration cafes).
If the vania collabs brings in the money, I just hope Konami puts it in developing something new.

I can't say I'm bothered by these cross overs.

On the other hand I feel like I'll finish my own Castlevania fan remake before the next true installment of the series is released.

In the mean time I've kept my addiction at bay by replaying the old games, trying out every romhack I can find, and searching out similarly flavored indie titles.

Empty collaborations reek of a PachinKonami sacrificing their once beloved franchise harder than Griffith sacrificed the original Band of the Hawk/ Falcon… 🏹 🦅💥🩸

SPOILERS, MAN!!!

Hey wasn't that Buff Crow Lady like a BERSERK DLC for the kind-of CastleVania cartoon anyhow?

No harm in keeping the dream alive; I joke on it a LOT nowadays, but I feel the franchise is in a holding pattern for the time being. 

Holding. 

And being passed around. 

At least until some highly competent folk make something that can move the series beyond the Dracula X series which ran from 1993 to 1997 and became the entire identity of CastleVania like the multitude of excellent CastleVania 1 remakes were before that.

Speaking of which, do any of you guys like the idea of having a new game embrace the soulslike formula? I've been thinking about it but im not sure it would work with CV tbh. If another big 3d game is made I'd rather have a DMC like combat, similar to LoI

Bloodborne is basically 3D SOTN done right. Other devs seem to be making the Castlevania games I'd wanna see.

I disagree with crisis on the Souls games being punishingly difficult. There's a learning curve, but once you get into the groove, they're insanely satisfying games bursting with great design, play mechanics, atmosphere, and lore. FromSoftware keeps old school Japanese game philosophy alive in the best of ways.

I really wish they'd release Bloodborne on PC or maybe the Switch successor.

It's stuck with Sony, unfortunately. Best we can see would be a PS5 remaster.
