subtext reads hes trying to build a game with our help, that also challenges us & hard for us to beat
I can only hope.

Crazy thought, but what if IGA furthered the formula he had going in OoE where it felt like a nice mesh of Classicvania and Metroidvania and we can expect something along the lines of the training room from OoE for an entire game?

Anyway, that message sounds more like something that has to do with the actual Kickstarter. That we - the players - are meeting them - the developers - on Kickstarter to see what we can do together! The "New World" could just be a way to describe crowdfunding. Dunno.

In fact, "New World" capitalized like that makes me think that he's referring specifically to the Americas. I'll go off a limb to say the he might indeed come to the USA just so he can set something up.

One thing: I went to /v/ and there are some people using my fanart of the site as if something had happened. It's not real, it's just a fanart.

What are the odds of the final boss in the game being Dracula? There's absolutely nothing stopping IGA from doing it. I wonder what would happen if he put Dracula, Death, Medusa, Succubus, the Mummies etcetera, in the game? Could Konami do anything about it? It's very different from, say, Mighty no 9 where they can't possibly use any of the classic Mega Man bosses (their names are probably protected somehow). But Castlevania bosses? I mean, we can't have the more specific ones like...dunno, Shaft. Or Isaac. But the rest?

Not that I think this will happen, and I am all for a fresh start with new stuff. But technically I think it would be possible to make a game that uses plenty of Castlevania characters. Though maybe Konami could claim some kind of trademark infrigement anyway...

Oh hell yes. Look, I don't care if it's 3D or if it's online or if it's sodding Igavania Puzzle: Encore of the Night. There's back-dashing in the game. This thing's going to work out.

Looking forward to more news! Very interesting. I'm hoping for some whip-cracking action-platforming!

I think we can at least expect a 3DS release to be one of the stretch goals on the kickstarter. Unless they're targetting PS4/XBOne which might make the game too demanding graphically. Though nothing suggests "cutting edge" graphics at this point.

 I really dig having a map on the bottom (or top) screen, so 3DS is my most wanted platform too. Though I wouldn't mind a Vita release either because the screen is so pretty...

PC (steam) and then as much porting to other platforms as the KS goals can get (preferency for 3DS here), is the way to go in my opinion. If you think about it, PC permits some interesing modding (not really into it myself) and an eventual map editor (wich i´ve dreamed about for so many years).

Anyway this looks like the real thing. I'm not worried about this baby turning into some MMO Frankenstein or casual mobile phone game at all, it would be ridiculous if IGA just left Konami for such a project. We'll see about it this monday, anyway.

In the meantime, and seeing how much attention we get from the man himself and the game media, we could start a new, specific thread to put our hopes and opinions on the table, served with some order and good taste. After all, we are the hard-core (in many ways) of the CV community and it seems like we really matter, for the first time.

...oh, and cheers to all the old buddies around  :)  Glad to surf the giant hype wave along with you, again!

I hope it will be released on Wii U. I can`t believe IGA is back, I hope such high hopes! I was disappointed when he said he put this game on hold. I haven`t been so excited since the leaked image of Order of Ecclesia. I love Igavanias, especially Aria and Ecclesia. I enjoyed them all and replayed them many times. Ecclesia was his perfect last game, having nice artwork (after anime inspired DOS and POR) and a great combination of smaller areas/levels and a great beautiful castle. Bosses were fantastic. Now, IGA has had many years to think about a new game (more than before, between released games), so this game could be everything IGA fans wish for!
