Now that Lords of Shadow is a CV, what's going to happen to this?

At first, Lords of Shadow didn't have anything to do with Castlevania. It was a separate game, and therefore must have been developed separately from this one. Furthermore, Iga has to be working on something, and since we haven't heard anything about a cancellation(add to that the fact that Lords of Shadow is a side-story), it's very possible that he's still working on this game.


What I'm thinking is, since Lords of Shadow is a 3D game, it's possible that Konami has allowed Iga to take a risk with a 2D console game. Now that would be pretty damn sweet, right?

So what do you think is going on with this game?

I think its more likely he's working on the next DS entry, but i cant rule a console entry out.

It's possible that he's working on another DS title, but I doubt it - since they had a teaser for this game, they must've done some work on it. Would they just scrap that work an go "whatever, let's go back to making DS games"?

I'm saying they must have done some work on the PS360 Castlevania with Alucard in it. Would they just throw that away and start working on another DS game instead?

Cancellation is nothing new in the Castlevania franchise. Look at the 32X game (with some assets that would arguably go on to be a part of Symphony, though no one knows for sure) and Castlevania: Resurrection for Dreamcast.

That said, I think it's more likely that IGA is doing another DS game, or that the Alucard game might end up being a 2D downloadable title.
