Koji Igarashi dominates the E3 2016 scene with his new Castlevania style game

June 14, 2016

The new E3 2016 demo is out folks. Finally, you get to have a glimpse of what Koji Igarashi has been doing behind the curtains all of this time, and why he will show the world how a true Castlevania style game should be made.

For those of you who are fans of the famous vampire hunting series, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night takes everything that made Symphony of the Night so great, and gives it the polishing and upgrade looks, as well as the beloved style of Castlevania games you've come to know and love over the years.

Mind you, this is an early beta demo you're seeing, as it has a long way to go and quite a bit more features to implement. But so far from the E3 video things are looking incredible. Who says there is no market for these types of games anymore?

Not Koji, that is for damn sure, and since he is at the helm this time doing many of the things fans have been begging for, this is sure to be a platform style game worth purchasing when it comes out. When will Bloodstained be released? So far the initial release date is set for March 2017, provided there are no delays as sometimes happens with much anticipated games like this time.

Let me bring you up to speed on a few things for those of you who don't know who Igarashi is. He is considered "Mr. Castlevania", the guy behind great gems like Symphony of the Night, and the Gameboy Advance / Nintendo DS titles you may have played.

He since has left Konami and decided to go out on his own, but his real dream was to make a Castlevania game under his own supervision & efforts, along with the help of other former Konami names you may know.

Michiru Yamane, and David Hayter. Yamane being the brains behind much of the Castlevania music you've heard, and Hayter being the voice of Solid Snake in most of the Metal Gear Solid games.

It started as a Kickstarter funded project, with an initial goal of $500,000 to be raised for producing it, and after the campaign ended, it received well over 3 million dollars. I'd say that constitutes a need for this style of game doesn't it? A number of you may have help funded, while some of you even managed to get your hands on the demo by the time you read this article.

Koji wanted very much to take after the "MetroidVania" tradition, but introduce more modes, weapons, and a buffet of all the things from previous Castlevania games he's had his hand in. I say good for him, and it's about time. His intentions shine through in his original Kickstarter video.

Hats off to you, as the rest of us will have to wait until that release date for Bloodstained when it comes, but well worth the wait after beholding what has transpired so far. Still, if only we had a time machine. Be sure to check out the original Kickstarter video below too if you haven't already.
