Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is finally coming out later this month. Will it be worth the wait? We certainly hope so, and we'll all find out soon enough.
While we count down those final days, Gematsu sat down with Koji Igarashi to talk a bit more about the project. He covered a number of topics about Bloodstained, and even touched on Castlevania. Check out some snippets from the interview below.
On criticism the game received recently, which was addressed in the latest trailer
Igarashi: “Well, I feel like they had the right to say the things they said, so I apologize.”
Igarashi: “Including some time to get lost, it should take about 10 or more hours.”
On Bloodstained as a franchise
Igarashi: “...I hope Bloodstained will grow as a series. Not only games, but I’d be happy if there would ever be an anime or something.”
On unfinished work with Castlevania
Igarashi: “There are two episodes that we’ve implied but never finished. So I’d like to finish those. ...In Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, we implied that Dracula was destroyed in 1999, but no one has yet to tell that story.”
On if Igarashi would return to Konami to make another Castlevania if asked
