Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night fans have been longing for more info on Koji Igarashi’s spiritual successor to the classic in Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night. Well, seeing as it’s E3, why not get a trailer to sate fans?
Despite the game’s jump to 3D, there are still plenty of nods to SOTN in the trailer that had me smiling. As did the amount of plasma being tossed around by the boss character. And who doesn’t love the return of Michiru Yamane and her work on the game’s soundtrack? The game is scheduled for 2018, but it looks to be another game that shows plenty of promise. Here’s hoping that it doesn’t end up like certain other Kickstarter games that were meant as homages to past successes.
In addition, there’s also a backer update with an interview the game’s technical director, where he explains the difficulties they faced using the unfamiliar Unreal Engine 4, and the challenges of creating the best of both worlds for the game’s 2.5D environments.
