I can't help but wonder if re-releasing SOTN for the ps4 prior to BS coming out was in some way a dig at Iga and ROTN to try and remind people of the iconicism of CV SOTN in particular. They are stupid for not at least considering a Switch release seeing as the majority of CuOTM consumers were on the Switch.

I think both games sort of benefit from the whole situation. When Bloodstained is finally out, people who like it will perhaps wanna play the game that inspired it, and it’s very convenient of Konami to make sure SotN is available for download when/if that happens. Well played! Meanwhile, SotN in 2018 could almost be considered an unintentional teaser for Bloodstained. I bet IGA is not mad at this at all and could use it to his advantage. It’s good for Bloodstained hype if people start talking about SotN again. Everyone wins.

I can't help but wonder if re-releasing SOTN...[is] in some way a dig at Iga and ROTN ...

Considering the way it's being released, it doesn't seem like a very good dig -- kinda like the kid on the playground who wasn't quite ready for a battle of wits and awkwardly retorts with something like, "Oh yeah? Well...you...your shirt!  It's...stupid!"

:-P

I guess I could see them turning a little profit from it at least -- as shel said, it's convenient to make this available on PS4 for any interest Bloodstained might generate, etc..  I'm disappointed though.  I don't find it very exciting or "pretty", and since I don't have a PS4 I'm certainly not gonna buy one just for this.
If the leak of a "new" title is true though, I wonder if it will also be a PS4 exclusive? (...based on the fact that this "collection" is exclusive) :-/

If I wasn’t afraid of barbers before, I am now!  Waiting for someone to do a Devilish Dentist next.

Never heard of Sweeney Todd?

I've barely heard of Sweeny Todd.  He was a barber?  I remember Edward Scissor hands lol.

He was a barber yes. But his gimmic was to drop people from his specially fitted barber chair (at the top floor of his shop) down to the basement where they'd die on impact, and then he'd chop them up and put their remains into meat pies.

You can watch the Sweeney Todd movie starring Johnny Depp.

I'd prefer the the actual story as opposed to a film which has them breaking out into singing as if they're on stage  :P

The film was based on the broadway musical. Thus the singing and dancing.  ;D

Yeah I had the same issue with Phantom of the Opera. Couldn't they just make a straight-up movie without all the singing? If I want to see a singing preference then I'll go to a Broadway show. For me it ruins the flow of the movie in a way most do not notice. It also makes the movie feel less real and immersive--like they're on stage and not actually in said world the movie is trying to portray. It's also why I don't watch a whole lot of Disney fllms because of all the breaking out into song. To me it's acting as filler for time rather then actual story progression. But waddeva   :-\

I usually don’t mind singing in movies but Sweeney Todd was unusually annoying. Or perhaps I was already really sick of the whole Tim Burton/Johnny Depp/Helena Bonham-Carter thing...

Oh wow.  Love Shantae, so this is pretty rad news.  (Plus those games look great, so visually speaking, only good can from this.)
