And here is the 5th



Has some one understood how to unlock these icons? I have only the first scroll and I'm quite always on the website.

I'm surprised the term "Igavania" is used throughout this at all. It may very well be something that the Castlevania Dungeon came up with in the first place.

It was meant to be derisive, if I recall, because IGA's games weren't "real" Castlevania games for "real" Castlevania fans. It's not like CotM was called KO-G-Vania. But it looks like IGA don't give a fuck and will claim it as his own now.

Did you guys see this on the neogaf thread,

Take the following with a MOUNTAIN of salt, but the following comes from /v/. I will quote it verbatim.

"It's real. Game is going to be called Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Kickstarter goes live May 11th. Main character is NotShanoa named Miriam. She has rune tattoos on her body. NotAlucard will be named Gebel.

Screen cap this."

The same user mentioned Michiru Yamane is on board as composer.

After some of the messages I've read in here and have received myself (particularly the one about a woman running away from herself/power/something), I'm beginning to think this is sounding more and more true. 

Anywho, in the event that this game proves to look awesome enough to fund (my hype won't let me think otherwise) how much are you guys planning on donating?  $20 is my minimum so far; more will depend on goals, a certain amount to get the beta if available, ect.

As long as I can equip notShanoa like a notBelmont, then I'll be set.

Also now that IGA's not with Konami, he legally cannot make another asset recycle. That's probably what I'm most excited about.

This is probably the first time in 7 years I've been excited for a (Not)Castlevania.

Also holy shit OoE was released 7 years ago. Lords 5 years ago...

Depending on the rewards tiers I'll probably drop $100~$150.

So from I can gather with the latest messages is there'll be a livestream where Iga reveals the next project on Monday the 11th. So we'll either see something Sunday night or Monday morning, taking into account time zone differences. I'm guessing sword or whip will provide us with a link when the time comes.

Same here. Too bad I can't help but feel it being most likely a (Not)Castlevania puts a slight damper on things. Then again, maybe this will turn out to be more interesting. I'm already glad it's not more LoS.

edit: By the way, won't they get in trouble using that edited SotN artwork on the website? It has IGA's face pasted on it, but it seems like something petty to get sued over.

It's technically a new image



Though this whole project could come under copyright violation if they're not careful. I hope it doesn't, but it's treading the line, especially with IGA's owning of IGAvania.

EDIT: Is anyone else at all worried this may be revealed as a phone game?

I was worried at first that it may be a mobile game, but I remembered the original flyer and the images on it, so I'm hoping it's going more in that way.  Plus, I couldn't see him needing a kickstarter for a mobile game, nor people that are in the know (if this is what they are more than likely referring to) being excited about a mobile game. 

As for the copywrite issue: I dunno.  A lot of the enemies, including Dracula, are free domain.  The idea itself can't be copy written, so there is nothing to stop him having a protagonist entering an antagonist's castle who just happens to have monsters inside it attacking people. 

Copy write is a tricky subject, but I think IGA will be fine.  It's kinds like Marvel and DC making the same type of characters, Coke and Pepsi making the same type of drinks, or a lot of these spiritual succesor games in general: as long as it isn't exactly the same and enough is changed, he can get away with it.  More so since a lot of Castlevania's stuff is free domain.

That's inevitable when you've become so attached to a series for a long time.

As long as this new retains the spirit and reasons why we loved Castlevania I think the transition from one IP to another for fans will be a pretty easy one. I just want more to leak so I know I should be excited...

3 days left!
As long as I can equip notShanoa like a notBelmont, then I'll be set.
This is the dream for me right now too.

i wouldn't necessarily call it like coke/pepsi or marvel/dc, as those companies have more of a friendly rivalry relationship going on for decades. iga doesn't even have his own company(yet) and if he did it would take years to get as huge as konami is(was)

but as 4 copyright infringement, look @ mighty #9 which is essentially megaman rebooted, yet Capcom never put a seize & desist order out or anything so i think iga will be fine in this regard

however, that doesn't mean i want him to rehash the Dracula mythos. he should draw heavy on Japanese mythology like he did with aria, so many other cultures have their own demonic deities that have yet to be realized & this is a perfect opportunity for iga & team to take advantage of that

Some new quotes we gathered over on Neogaf :)

??: He is a hero, or a villain. But what is a hero?
??: The ritual is nearly complete.
??: Why do you enter my castle, Focalor the Filthy? Is it simply fate that connects us?
??: They tell me it’s been far too long. Time... feels different, in my condition.
??: I have seen you make fools of powerful enemies. I have watched you warp through obstacles, exploit every advantage. I have watched you cheat. Good.
