Here's the original tweet https://twitter.com/Konami/status/538033280583352321 from Brentalfloss comics apparently. I didn't even know Brentalfloss (the guy who makes the "What if video game music had lyrics?" songs/videos) made comics! This one's pretty cute though. :3 Thoughts?

Nice webcomic. But like one of the forum members of that site had mentioned; 'Make another Castlevania!'

So actually it wasn't an actual tweet by Konami but another artist that Konami retweeted...? EWWWW

You mean 2D Castlevania in the veins of SOTN, or anything from the Nintendo portables...

That comic is probably the closest we'll get to my ideal CV. It's the Belmont family dinner... even a Belmont sister(wielding dual axes). Seriously, we need a fuckin' CV that deals more with the family aspect of the series.

I always like to interpret these shout-outs to Castlevania as hints that the series hasn't been put on the back burner. Then again, maybe they reference Suikoden and Goemon all the time as well.

I know they reference Goemon from time to time, but as for suikoden, i dont remember them mentioning it in the recent years.

This is GREAT
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow sucks

I agree with Rugal (didn't think I'd be able to say that for awhile ;) )

I like it. The wall meat thing was cute and maybe it's an indication that they haven't put the series on ice.

Aren't Brentalfloss' comics actually made by Andrew Dobson?
Laura and Gabriel arrive in the deepest cave of the castle and... they find IGA.

Dunno, wouldn't be surprised if they're made/drawn by someone else.
