Konami launches new website dedicated to Castlevania

Nintendo fans are getting a major dose of Castlevania with the upcoming Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it seems Konami is eager to bring the franchise back to the forefront of gamers' minds. Along with the upcoming PS4 re-release of Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night, as well as season two of the Castlevania Netflix series, Konami has opened up a new hub site for all things Castlevania. It'll obviously help you keep tabs on any new projects, but it also chronicles the history of the entire franchise. You can check out the site right here.

Dance Dance Revolution movie in the works

Greg Silverman’s Stampede has announced that they'll be producing a movie based on Konami's Dance Dance Revolution. In a synopsis that is both horrifying and amazing at the same time, the DDR film will "explore a world on the brink of destruction where the only hope is to unite through the universal language of dance." Stampede will partner with producers J. Todd Harris and Marc Marcum of Branded Entertainment, as well as Konami, on the film. This sounds like it's going to be one hell of a movie, for better or worse. Count me in, baby!

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!

David Hayter, the voice of Snake, is yet to record more Codec conversations for Smash Bros. Ultimate

If you were looking forward to more codec conversations from Snake in Smash Bros. Ultimate, you might want to temper those expectations. The voice actor for Snake, David Hayter, has said that he's not been asked to record anymore codec conversations yet. It doesn't mean it won't happen in the future, but as of right now, what we got in previous games is what we'll get here.
