Their struggles with development seems to have put Konami off development for a while. Now that they've had some successes in the past year, and seen how successful other Japanese publishers have been, they want to get back into this market.I rode past their Tokyo office last week, gave it the stink eye lol
I wonder why they've suddenly backtracked on their apparent commitment to mobile gaming
Konami owns the IP, they did that horrible zombie one without Kojima.Is Konami getting Kojima back or do they own the Metal Gear ip?
Anyway I welcome Castlevania cumming back!
It's rare, but it happens occasionally. Fallout is probably the most famous example. But I believe Mizuguchi bought Rez from Sega as well.Has there been examples in the past where one gaming company sells an ip to another without a complete company takeover?
Hmmm ... they *did* reference Symphony of the Night in that tweet.With confirmation of Bluepoint acquisition by Sony, what if Blue Point is doing Souls like Castlevania instead of Fromsoft.
As pointed out by MBG, Bluepoint said they are doing an "original game," which doesn't necessarily mean a "new IP," but it does confirm they aren't doing a remake. They could be making an Original game for an existing IP.
