Konami Is Aware Of "Excitement And Enthusiasm" For Castlevania After Dead Cells DLC




Konami is aware of the "excitement and enthusiasm" for new Castlevania content following the positive reception to the release of Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania.

Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania is exciting for a number of reasons. For starters, more Dead Cells is never going to be a bad thing, but the main reason is that it finally gives us something new in the series, something that isn't a bunch of NFTs that no one asked for or a few character skins for Brawlhalla.

If you're excited for Return to Castlevania, you might want to keep that energy up as, in an interview with IGN, Konami's Return to Castlevania supervisor Tsutomu Taniguchi has noted that the "excitement and enthusiasm" for the DLC has been "motivating" for the studio, likely in relation to future content for the series.

During the interview, Taniguchi acknowledges that the "excitement and enthusiasm of the fans online" is "really motivating for Konami". Taniguchi also noted that Konami knows that the Castlevania fans "always want more", which made the chance to crossover with Dead Cells impossible to pass up on.

For those who haven't been keeping up with the latest Konami rumours, it's been suggested multiple times over the past few years that a new Game in the series is in development. Back in 2021, it was reported that a "reimagining" of the series was in the works and, as recently as last month, VGC reported that a new Castlevania Game is likely to be at E3 2023 alongside the announcement of a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake.

While the rumours of a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake are a little more concrete thanks to things like a Metal Gear Solid art book appearing in a Virtuos Studio video (the team rumoured to be developing the remake), there's not much known right now about a new Castlevania, save for it being in development. Let's hope the rumours are true and that it finally makes an appearance at E3 2023 later this Summer.
