Konami has both Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia and Castlevania Judgment on display at Tokyo Game Show this year, but it brought a tiny, tiny bit more with it, just to start messing with our heads. A new Castlevania has been announced for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3... at some point in the future. That is absolutely all that we know at this point, as both Konami reps and series lead Koji Igarashi are being mum on what we can expect. We asked Konami reps the burning question: will it be 2D or 3D? The answer: "That's up to Iga." We're told we can expect more information in the coming months, but inquiries about locking down a date for further updates were met with shrugs. Hopefully, Konami will look at titles like Bionic Commando: Rearmed and Mega Man 9 for inspiration on just how many dimensions this things going to need.
I would spend a small fortune to fly to Japan, find Iga, and try to convince him to do a 2D old school-style Castlevania for next gen. HD, not HD, whatever... jus' get back to your roots. They've proven that the 2d Castle games sell. Hell, in this day and age with downloadable games they could save some production money.
This has all been said before. S'jus' that I, like many Castlevanaia fans, hurt everytime a current/next-gen Castlevania game is released.
