I'm not a huge CV fan by any means but I had no idea this existed... Seems like it would be a timely release for LRG or anyone, I think the Netflix show helped with CV popularity. 

You're right. Castlevania hasn't been as popular as it is right now since the 90's.

 

Let me take a quick look at what Konami is doing to capitalize on it...

estrange the creators and turn the assets into pachinko machines?

We did get Castlevania stuff in Smash Bros.

I just hope we get another Castlevania collection for switch.  We could use the PS1/Saturn/GBA/DS games in a collection.

A bit off-topic, but I'm hopeful that Konami is working on a new Castlevania game given the new interest through the Netflix show. 

 

That said, I actually hope it's not Konami itself making the game, but that the company licensed it to a solid developer such as Platinum.  After Contra, I think we're all better off if Konami stays away from doing development on its own.

They got paid and literally had to do nothing. Them paying for something is a different.

Konami doesn't make new video games anymore, not really.  All they do is capitalize on successful IPs that they own with simple and easy cash grabs.  It's been that way for awhile.

It's sad that they still own these IPs and are gonna milk them but in that sense, they could just license their franchises to other studios for games I guess. I would love to see Wayforward take a stab at a 2D Castlevania or one of Sony's studios make an MGS game.

They don't even care enough to do that. The licensed out Contra to Toylogic and we got Rogue Corps.

Its a good game especially if you like games in the Ghosts N Goblins series.  I have it on 3DS.  Can be brutally difficult though (I never got too far myself)

 

I'm just turned off on the version LRG is selling since they are making you buy a lot of unnecessary stuff for $59.99 and aren't just selling the standard game only.  Still undecided if I want all that extra crap just to get a physical copy.

I believe you can also Pre-order this game off Idea Factory's website, but LRG is the only other distributor of this title.

IF said that this version will come with all DLC (Costumes I think) on cartridge.

Well... the CD and then they have to get everything to the packing company, get in the cue for the packing company, then get them back to the office, then in the cue for the shipping team.  I wouldn't get your hopes up that it's happening soon.

Yet another company surpasses LRG in the customer service dept. LRG could learn a thing or two from their competitors. I think my average wait time it pushing 9 months now. Another competitor also sends digital codes of the games to hold their customers over.E9F8B7DE-9DB2-498D-BC19-B6B1D3BAC51A.jpeg
