Yo, yo.

Pretty excited to see Kojima's take on the cast for the cover. Hope it's something like this: http://castlevania.neo-romance.net/cv/aria_artbook/artbook12.jpg

Really looking forward to seeing Ayami's cover sleeve, it's really awesome of her to make time to help out with IGA's project too. Sounds like IGA was very close friends with his staff. :)

To be fair, she's not actually part of the Castlevania series, just the successor to it. A successor of fate, if you will. So it makes sense that she's off to the side.

That she's part of the forum banner at all is kinda showing IGA that we're with him on his new venture.
And as for not being on the Floor, back in 2010 Kid Dracula was flying in that same spot.

She's not part of CV, despite how many would like her to be.

Looks like Bloodstained has overtaken Yooka-Laylee now, if the currency converter on xe is correct.

Seriously stoked to see that Ayami Kojima's on board for this.  I'm really not surprised, but still very happy about this.

Imagine the irony if Konami were to announce a new 2D Castlevania at E3 this year.

2D platformers don't work well on mobile :(

I'd like to at least see their attempt on making Julius the most badass Belmont in existence.

...assuming they'd remember him...

Hey, I found another interesting interview wif Iga:

http://shmuplations.com/bloodstained/

I’ve created many game worlds in the past, but for this game, I wanted the setting to be an actual period in history, to increase the sense of realism. I wanted Bloodstained to be set in England. The story matches that locale, and it seemed like the kind of place where a demon summoning might have actually happened. I did some investigation into English history to see if there had ever been such an event.

—And did you find anything?

Igarashi: I did. In the 17th century the Laki volcano in Iceland erupted, killing 1/3 of the population in Iceland. Furthermore, the ash and sulphur dioxide from the eruption blanketed Europe, and a great many people were affected. There are a lot of legends and folklore surrounding this eruption, yet for some reason, despite the fact that 23000 people died in England, there are no such English stories about it.

A huge disaster, but no records remain… I imagined that it was actually a murderous rampage by something Inhuman, and there were people trying to cover it up. Also, there was this line I read, from a villager who lived through the eruption: “It was black as night even during the day, and the sun look red like blood.” In Bloodstained there’s a castle summoned from Hell, and that line inspired me to make the castle appear blood red to onlookers. That’s an important theme for me in this game, a stronger connection between the world of fantasy and the world of reality.


Much like how he wove the 1999 eclipse and the Nostradamus prophecies into the Demon Castle War. I like it.

Yes, more Ayami goodness. My birthday is next month, so maybe I can put a little money into Bloodstained and get it back later.

Welcome to the forums BalancedHydra! :)

Sooo...why don't we have a CV Dungeon clan already? I saw it mentioned before. Do we need to petition? Twitter spam?

I mentioned it before. I think we need a twitter spam.
