WayForward would “love” to work on a 2D Castlevania game, but that is “entirely up to Konami,” according to WayForward. The talented studio tweeted this message in response to a fan question.

@WayForward have you considered about making a side scrolling Castlevania ?

@DENGOJIN We’d love to work on Castlevania but that’s entirely up to @Konami

 

After the slight letdown of Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2, I think it’s time for Konami to make an awesome 2D Castlevania again. Alucard as the main character, prequel to Symphony of the Night. Or how about a sequel to Order of Ecclesia?

Double Dragon Neon and Ducktales have me convinced that WayForward can do no wrong.

why does it have to be a sequel or prequel.
why not an original.

that said, bloodrayne betrayal was definitely a cv invitation to konami

I'd be very nice to see Wayforward do a Castlevania game.

However I think Konami has already found their next developer by now.

For reference, Konami went to Mercurysteam before Order of Ecclesia and Judgement were released so the next Castlevania game may be in development as we speak.

I think Konami should relent and allow WayForward to do this. The series has spent enough time in the darkness, now it's time for it to shine as it once had.

Castlevania 5 please.

I have a feeling they would fare better making a Classicvania instead of a Metroidvania.

I always thought of this:

- Castlevania 5
- Is a direct sequel to the first two games and stars Simon's son, Peter Belmont(Simon Peter, LOL)
- Takes place in the early 1700s(maybe 1720s)
- In the vein of the traditional CVs with a lot of ideas from SCV4(particularly gameplay).
- Story has hints of Dracula, but he's not the main villain. Probably focus on another vampire, like Carmilla or Elizabeth Bartley as the main antagonist.
- Branching paths like RoB, secret stages and lots of alternate boss battles. Because of this, lots of replayability.

This is something I can get behind. Make it beautiful as hell, get Jake Kaufman to score it(maybe even get Yamane to contribute, like how Shovel Knight has Matsumae doing a few songs)! Lots of winks to classic CV fans, and an overall polished experience. Release it for handhelds and home consoles(digital). Fuck yeah! Sold, baby!!

So basically a Harmony of Dissonance prequel about one of Juste's parents. Did Harmony of Dissonance make any mention of them? Whether it was his father or mother that was from the Belmont lineage?

If I remember right it says that he's descended from both the Belmont and Belnades/Fernandez clan. Presumably from some branch of the Belnades/Fernandez family other than Sypha, assuming that the Sypha/Trevor pairing from the end of CV3 is canon. Since he carries the Belmont name and it takes place in a more conservative historical period, we can assume he's descended from the Belmonts on his father's side.

For the original topic I think it would be nice, but I don't expect it to happen.
