This is a Japanese game made by a game developer called Frontier Aja. This is probably the closest we’ll ever get to seeing a traditional hard core Castlevania game ever again. The game has a tentative title which translates to “Scarlet symphony legendary Magic Castle Hongdo”. I only wish it was Konami endorsed since it looks so great in action. Watch a video after the jump.
We’ve already gotten Mega Man 9 and Contra Rebirth (which better come out soon in the US) on WiiWare, so please tell me someone at Konami is working on a Castlevania WiiWare title, preferrably a brand new title and not a “remake” of the original. It only makes perfect sense guys.
Wait… Aja as in “Frontier Aja”? The makers of Touhouvania?
Yes Frontier Aja, I thought I wrote that.
That looks like it’s a load of fun to play. Come to Wiiware!
WAit…. This IS Touhouvania (didn’t actually get to watch it). I…I want. Badly. *addicted to touhou*
Um…there’s a new Castlevania title almost every other year. And what do you mean by traditional, hardcore Castlevania title?
Yes, please enlighten us as to what IS a traditional hardcore Castlevania title? Ecclesia wasn’t hardcore? Portrait of Ruin and the PSP remake of Rondo of Blood weren’t traditional enough?
I don’t get what makes this fan-game look so great, poorly implemented flying and shooter mechanics right down to generic bullet sprays from the boss, that generic sound-effect-cd thwack when you hit /anything/ and sprite designs that just look silly.
Uh. RPG System Removed. Whip Only.
Remakes don’t count.
