And it is based off an old IP from the days of the Famicom, Getsu Fuma Den.

Yipes, that looks toight!  Can't help noticing the busyness, but that woodblock vibe is a good look. 

Oyeah, the Dwelling of Duels soundtrack is also dope.   8) 8) 8)

Seriously, Fuuma of all things? I mean, I ain't complaining, but Konami seems real random these days.
It seems like they are actually putting some effort into this thing, for once. Gfx seems nice, if a bit rough around the edges, but they'll probably make it better by the time it's done. I wonder if they'll fuck up the gameplay somehow tho. Speaking of, apparently on the twitter they described the game as roguevania, so, like a roguelike metroidvania if I understand correctly? That's kinda wild ngl.
And also it has a fucking PEGI 18 warning thing, like the more I look at this thing the wilder it gets.

Peeking out from under my rock; what's "Rogue"?
Rogue was an old PC RPG game with turn based gameplay, random floor, items and enemy generation and permadeath. There was some more stuff but that's the gist of things. And again, all of those seem weird to me when applied to Fuuma so I'm wondering if Konami themselves don't know what a roguelike is or some bullshit.

Anyways, there are a few minute long gameplay vids on youtube and there seems to be an alternate character:

I'm down for this. Certainly seems more interesting than the China-only mobile Castlevania game Konami has in the works.

The ukiyo-e art style is sick and makes sense for a Getsu Fuuma revival. I'm in. I just hope this won't be another Contra Rogue Corps.

Wow, that looks pretty cool...I'm a sucker for feudal Japan mixed with horror (for lack of a better description). Things like dragons, oni, yokai, and skeletons in feudal armor just have a cool aesthetic to them.

I always wanted to check out the original Getsu Fuuma Den ever since playing the additional stages in Harmony of Despair, so I'm looking forward to this one. Kind of cautious about it, though, with Konami being Konami and all... :-\

I have mixed feelings on this.

The models and colors are nice.

But it's also very difficult to read the screen. Way too much going in the backgrounds and the character doesn't stand out enough from it all. The hit effects and explosions are so huge they cover so much of the action and characters it looks like it would give me a major headache to try to play it. It's a case of too much going on visually for my tastes.

I'm happy to see everyone excited about something from konami but bloodstained was the first and for me personally, only game to really nail the 2.5D and still be clear and easy to play and enjoyable.

I can't see myself playing this. But at least it's not mobile only?

Hopefully it's a sign of better things to come.

Belmontoya@

Your right about the 'too much going on in the background'. Konami could trim it down a bit and find some way for the characters to stand out more as they are somewhat difficult to watch on screen.

Oh, this article says that Steam downloaders of the early access game will get a copy of the original.  Not sure if it’ll be localized or if Switch owners will be able to get it next year.
