Castlevania's Igarashi Watching RM9 Closely
Could Rockman 9 start a 'retro revolution?' The return to the more simplistic style of games? Creator of the Castlevania series, Koji Igarashi believes so.
Igarashi is watching the success of Rockman 9 closely to determin if the next iteration in the Castlevania series would return to its 2D roots.
"I’m watching that very closely to see how it does. Myself, I’m a big retro gaming fan, so if it is successful that definitely opens up doors for what I can do."
Like the Rockman series, releasing a new 2D Castlevania title is risky, financially. If a new 2D Castlvania were to be made, it would follow the path of RM9, a downloadable title possibly in 8- bit.
