i think it would be phat if instead of them handing/selling the franchise, konami would decide to create 1 last cv game & we the fans would be forced to decide which "does it better"

Konami would not do it. They are undergoing massive corporate restructuring and their gaming divisions are technically dead or dying.

Well, Iga's definitely shown himself to be having the last laugh now.

Perhaps the success of this Kickstarter may convince Konami there is still some leverage in 2DVania, but it's very hard to be optimistic about Konami these days.

I would probably pick Draculiga out of spite.

All publishers IGA went to said that his idea "Bloodstained" is outdated and no one would support it.

IGA's definitely getting the last laugh.

At this rate, it looks like it won't be long 'till we get Nightmare Mode and Hayter-sama's soothing growls...

Also I'm guessing WayForward were among those who said they wouldn't publish it because it would be stepping on Konami's toes, since they've done stuff for them before.

Perhaps the success of this Kickstarter may convince Konami there is still some leverage in 2DVania, but it's very hard to be optimistic about Konami these days.

And who will they outsource it to? Their efforts of outsourcing, by and large, have been wasteful efforts. Platinum's effort with Rising is the exception, and we can reasonably argue it was Hideo Kojima who got that to happen.

I would rather the series die outright than them try to get X or Y company to "go back to its roots". How many fuckin' times has Silent Hill tried that? How many times have they - if EVER - gotten it right? Silent Hill as a franchise perfectly summarizes Konami: they burn their own talent and hope they can find someone outside of their domain to make a game like the ones they did, but it never ever happens.

Bloodstained is essentially the next Castlevania game, in exactly the same way that Demon's Souls is King's Field V: too much of the old blood is there for it to be really something seen as totally new and isolated, but mostly changed and evolved.

Well the same thing could have been applied to Capcom and Mighty No. 9, that kickstarter showed that a HUGE amount of fans still was interested in the Mega Man market, and yet Capcom hasn't even bothered to jump back into that market even though its obviously still has a audience.

Companies like Capcom and Konami don't think rationally in my opinion, they would rather let their series fade into obscurity rather than admit they where wrong and pounce at a chance to win their fanbase over again.

Besides Konami is definitely the worse out of the 2 at the moment if you ask me, so I doubt they would do the smart thing and try to release a Castlevania game on the heels of this.

Well, it looks like the top total is going to be reached before the show is finished.

Sadly, based on the reports coming out, as much as I wish it weren't true, I can't foresee more official Castlevania now.... if they do bring more out, it won't be for a good long while.  They really should just hand it over to Iga ad conceed defeat.  The speed at which this KS has been funded shows a heck of a lot.

Edit:  Lol, just a thought..... what if Konami ended up outsourcing an official Castlevania game to Iga, before deciding to let him keep the series? XD

They just have to add more stretch goals!

I'm still going with IGA than anything Konami offers now, since I know their video game division is in trouble.

Gunlord's Bloodstained Blog, meow~

But yeah, even if we don't see another Castlevania game, as long as Bloodstained has the castlevania spirit, I'll be happy. =D

Wow, Yamane and Yamada's attitudes about the music is great.  The fact that Yamane apparently said it was her condition for egtting on board behind this is very epic.

The fact she basically is encouraging remixing & live performance covers and uploading them to our heart's content....that right there is why she's my favorite.

And it shows how much freedom she'll be taking advantage of now that she's under a corporate heel and in terms of decrees from Igarashi, he only said "make it catchy". (which I loooooooooooove)

thats cuz theres ltierally no middle grownd anymore. if its not a triple AAA high budget success than these companies cant survive. spending all these times & resources into these Hollywood-budget titles that, while profitable, dont reach call of Duty numbers which most of these companies want.

witch is why the gaming industry is on the verge of a crash. capcom is just a shadow of their former self these days. it seems only nintendo will last, despite their Wii-U being a bomb (sorry wii-u supporters but its true)

COD numbers is a unrealistic goal these companies have set for themselves these days, Call of Duty is obviously a different type of phenomenon these days and it simply can not be replicated no matter how much you put into your game, your not going to get those kinds of numbers and game developers should be happy when they make what they spent on the game and then a extra millions's worth of profit, instead they are stuck in the wrong mindstate that if we are not getting close to those Call of Duty numbers than we automatically failed which is BS.
