I am not an IGA fan as I am more partial to non Metroid style plat-fomers per say. However, I would prefer he had control over the property if a suitable owner was not found. Who else would you want to see do Castlevania if it were done as a SOTN reduh, as a Platfovania, a Judgement reworking or something we haven't even thought of yet?

Remember my name and know this. I have Suffolk Down Syndrome.


Stop me if you've heard this one.
A Belmont falls through a trap door into a square prison with no exits. After hitting three sides he smashes through the last one. Relieved and low on health he looks at the camera, smiles and says......"Pork chop?"
ULTIMATE FOURTH WALL BREAK!!! That just happened!!!

Several indie companies have been mentioned before in other threads with regards to future Castlevania titles. But personally I feel WayForward would be the best candidate for ownership.

Sell the IP to Jorge and we'd all contribute in the development. hahaha.
And yeah, this question has been raised time and again in this forum.

Either Wayforward or...the Darkest Dungeon guys. I'm playing that right now and they got the gothic atmosphere down pat.

Honestly, what I would be more interested in is a situation similar to Shenmue III where Konami and IGA could make a deal where they license the IP to him and he will do another kickstarter. You could always say: "Bah, I'm tired of that IGA", and as interesting it is to fantasize about who could do Castlevania justice, I honestly wonder how much game developers would be willing and actually competent enough to make a Castlevania game that people actually like. Just imagine Castlevania falling in the hands of the likes of MercurySteam forever.

LJN....

No seriously though, what Nagumo said, or say Vanillaware. Their platformers aren't exactly the same but handled by them I think a new life could be breathed into the series.

The guy ("s" probably, but I don't want to see stuff from WOMI) behind Rosenkreuzstilette, but I want to see if there's sequel of Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel first
The quest starring Karl "Belmont" Palesch, as he deals with some CV-inspired stuff, breaks through castle's defence lines, and the one-on-one gauntlet battle with Count Michael Sepperin would be "blazing" and "epic". Not working. NOT WORKING. DAMN WOMI.

And if the RKS graphic style used by a Castlevania game the result would be AWESOME. But that thing is only in my day dream...

Rockstar Games. Make a Red Dead Redemption style Castlevania set in Middle Ages Transylvania and full of evil creatures.

Sadly that was a april's fool joke :-\
But Hey, Freudenstachel was initially intended to be a April's fool Joke, and finished being a Full game  :P
Who knows in the future the company can make this game be real??  ;)

Anyone but Konami. Hell even Capcom is a better option than Konami at this point.

Migami!

Seriously. I think Mig does the best job of bridging the gap between classicvania and metriodvania fans. He also has a clean pretty clean slate story wise with Lecarde chronicles.

Iga's attempt at classicvania fell short in my opinion, and his metriodvania games got redundant.

Plotwist would be my vote for completing and fixing the timeline Iga attempted. You seem to have his style down perfectly. You also seem to have a better grasp on fleshing out  a storyline without leaving plot holes.

So if it's separate storyline I vote Mig. If it's picking up where Iga left off I vote plot twist.

My faith is in the fan projects.

I'm excited for bloodstained, but I expect it to appeal more to the metriodvania cv fans than it will nessacrily to the fans who prefer the classic style. It's darker days for those fans with no prospect of a new classicvania game.

If I could pick an established dev it would be vanillaware for a 2d CV and Tecmo for a 3d CV.

Company-wise, probably Bethesda.

Fan-wise, Plot. No contest.

you guys are all wrong (yes i am stirring the pot). Castlevania will be best under Nintendo's care for various reasons, more so than any other company. despite recent questionable business decisions their resume speaks for them-self:

- near flawless track record when it comes 2 challenging platformers
- originators uv the "metroidvania" style
- still release 2d sidescrollers till this day
- only company capable of successfuly uniting the "classicvania" y "metroidvania" style


tell me im wrong
