I would rather see Castlevania in the hands of Sony and Santa Monica studios than Nintendo.

But I would still be cool with Nintendo. It would help if they could make a desirable console first though.

I don't think you're wrong Crisis, but I don't think that would be the absolute best case scenario. Though it would be a nice home for CV as far stability goes. For now anyways. Nintendo's next console has to be a hit or they could be headed down the same road as Sega.

I take that back.

But only because I think we have a better chance at getting a classicvania with Nintnedo.

Either Nintendo or Bethesda. Hell, I'd go as far to say Capcom if they don't want it.

WayForward, Nintendo, Yacht Club. Any of those would do just fine for me, so long as Nintendo didn't add any unnecessary gimmicks to the gameplay formula.

Maybe they can give Megaman to Konami, not like anything is happening with it anyway :P

As someone previously stated a Castlevania done with an open world in the mold of Red Dead Redemption would be incredible.  But I wouldn't trust rock star with the combat.  I would actually go with Ninja Theory based on gameplay, or Bioware, based on world building/storytelling.

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

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

And we'd finally get Simon Belmont in Smash Bros too.

He should be an 8 bit sprite, charge attack being the flame whip, up attack being the axe, forward attack being holy water. His final smash should be a triple cross that takes up most of the screen, or hydrostorm (but that's rightfully Richter's move).

Even after how Ninja Theory ruined Dante in DMC?

I have yet to play anything from Way Forward and if it weren't for Gaijin Goomba I would not even know about Shantae let alone the redone Ducktales HD. Sadly I am an older gamer with more than my share of responsibilities. Also I am not a very efficient person aside from picky so playing games that I may feel apathetic to makes me less inclined to try new or unfamiliar titles. I would just like to see someone do it 3D but give the player more freedom to attack in all directions while in the air but keep double jumping to a minimum. Sony sounds ok to me if FromSoftware does it Bloodborne style and Nintendo works too. If I were to give it to a fan, Yum Yumz, Optomon or Thaddeus if he's around. It's a shame that Konami is the disfunctional parent that it is. Now we see why Simon's Quest is the neglected child.

How about a reduh of Judgement? Who would be right for that? Also is there any other way to do CV that hasn't been done and still be noteworthy?

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?"

For some reason, I always wondered what a Castlevania fighting game developed by Arc System Works would be like.  It probably would be pretty awesome.

Sell it to Toei and have them make a sentai show out of it.

I would like to see that too lol

From Software.
It would be interesting to see what they'd do with a 3D Castlevania. They know 3D level design, at least. IGA surely did not. And they know challenge. And atmosphere.

For 2D I'd say Yacht Club, for sure. Shovel Knight was brilliant in all its 8-bit glory, and I'd love to see them do a 16-bit (or even 32-bit) style Castlevania.

WayForward is too hit or miss for me, but when they get it right, it's soooo right. When it's wrong though, it's really mediocre.
