Fuck sony... You stole my ideaAccording to the latest rumours, Sony plan to buy Castlevania IP from Konami and reboot the series in the style of Bloodborne and previous Castlevania game - Lords of Shadow.www.altchar.com
Further to the rumors in march, this has just turned up....
'Rumours about a partnership between Konami and Sony have been floating around for several months now, suggesting that Sony are interested in buying several Konami IPs including Silent Hill and Metal Gear series.
Apparently, Sony are already working on two Silent Hill games. One of the titles is in development at Sony Japan Studio while Kojima Productions are working on another game - Silent Hills. On top of this, Sony are also interested in the Castlevania franchise.
According to latest rumours over at ResetEra , Sony are willing to purchase the IP and work on a full reboot. The most exciting part about this is that the game would be similar to Bloodborne, FromSoftware's PS4 exclusive and also Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. So a jam-packed action title but with Bloodborne combat and gameplay? Yes, please.
Of course, it is not surprising that Sony are interested in Castlevania, a franchise which is dripping with potential. The lore, the setting - everything is in place for a fantastic title and hopefully, Sony will bring us another masterpiece in the next few years.
At the moment, nothing is officially confirmed though, so we suggest you take the details with a grain of salt, just like any other rumour or unconfirmed info. That being said, Bloodborne-like Castlevania would be our dream game so fingers crossed that the rumour is true.'
2D or nothing. Especially not dark souls style.
Whichever company pays millions for that IP isn't going to produce indie scale games, let's be real. They want a return on that investment. Bloodborne-esque Castlevania is the logical next step since the 3D PS2/PS3 castlevania games weren't remarkable.
I think they could go in many directions. Ninja Gaiden Black is a great example of a 2D action-platformer done right in 3D. Hard pass for me if they make it like Bloodborne.
Maybe they should make a Bloodborne 2 that’s like old school Castlevania.
