Konami is Motivated by Castlevania Fan Enthusiasm

It’s been nearly a decade since the last entry in the Castlevania series, Lords of Shadow 2. Publisher Konami has kept the series dormant for several years, only releasing upscaled ports and remastered collections of classic Castlevania titles including Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night. However, one Konami developer is well-aware of fan enthusiasm to see the IP finally return to the spotlight, stating that it’s “motivating” for the company.

During an interview with IGN regarding the recent release of the crossover expansion Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania, Konami assistant producer Tsutomu Taniguchi said that the buzz surrounding Castlevania was “really motivating for Konami.” Taniguchi danced around the idea of potentially reviving Castlevania similar to what Konami accomplished with the Silent Hill series, but did give fans some light at the end of the tunnel.

Taniguchi’s reply when talking about fan enthusiasm for Castlevania reads:

“We tried to bring back the games that people loved and cherished with the Castlevania Anniversary Collection and the Castlevania Advance Collection. We also brought back Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night for our PlayStation fans and on mobile, and launched Grimoire of Souls on Apple Arcade to celebrate the lore of the franchise. But we know that our fans always want more, and we do too, so this opportunity to have this amazing crossover with Dead Cells was impossible to pass up on.”

A recent report from VGC claimed that Konami will attend E3 this year and could reveal a new Castlevania game, rumoured to be a reboot of the franchise, that’s been in development for some time now. The report also mentions a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

Castlevania is long-overdue for a revival and it seems like Konami is listening to fans on this one. Hopefully it leads to something great in the near future.
