There is talk about why Konami should make a Castlevania game for the Switch. This comes from a associate of Forbes. I saw associate as they are not directly linked with the magazine. Either way it mentions how you can see it might be a chance. That is if they decide check out the statement below.
In a new interview, it seems that management at Konami is thinking about bringing a new Castlevania game to the Nintendo Switch.
Richard Jones, the European Brand Manager at Konami Europe, in an interview with Miketendo64 talks about the possibility of a new Castlevania game coming to the Switch.
Konami already released the somewhat decent Super Bomberman R for the Switch at the console’s launch, so it makes sense that the company would examine its back catalog for new games on the console.
The comment about the new Netflix animated series is also worth noting, as that means that Konami is well aware of the marketing ramifications that such a series brings to a franchise like Castlevania.
I definitely think a new Castlevania game for the Switch would be a very good thing but only if it keeps to the classic 2D roots of the series. That’s because the more recent 3D games in the series weren’t exactly great.
In addition, I’d love to see games like Symphony of the Night (shown above) and Rondo of Blood come to the Switch at some point. The latter would especially be a great title to have on the Switch’s eventual Virtual Console service, ideally the original PC Engine version if possible.
Whatever happens, having a third party publisher such as Konami support the Switch with a new Castlevania game is precisely what this burgeoning console needs.
As always thank you for reading.
