New DS Castlevania in the works

Oct 23, 2007

First, you guys need to have a blast with Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles on PSP. Then you can look forward to a new CV game on DS, promises producer Koji Igarashi.

"We're doing another Nintendo DS version. There hasn't been an official announcement, but we're doing it," he recently confirmed. And that's really good news considering the previous two games, Portrait of Ruin and Dawn of Sorrow, were f-ing brilliant.

But you'll have to wait a while for it to arrive. "First, we want people to enjoy the PSP version, and afterwards we're announcing it. So, please wait a little bit." That's fine with us, you take your time, mate.

Igarashi also spoke about the production of the upcoming Castlevania live-action movie whichhe says won't be a complete train crash like most game-to-film crossovers. But Igarashi himself is taking a backstep in production.

"The movie should be handled by the movie makers. But the director and I, we discussed the world of Castlevania, and the conflicts, and the story. But the director plays the game a lot. He was actually showing the producer how to play it. He knows about it. So I feel really confident," he toldWired.
