Koji "Iga" Igarashi is best known for his work on the Castlevania series over the years, but right now, is exceptionally busy promoting Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, due out later this month on the Switch. During an interview with Gematsu, though, he was asked if he would ever make another Castlevania if his former employer Konami...
Koji Igarashi admits he needs to speed things up
Koji Igarashi has spoken about Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night in an interview with Famitsu, and has admitted that the game is only 20 to 30 percent complete. When it was shown off at BitSummit one year ago, Bloodstained was around 10 percent complete. Unsurprisingly, Igarashi also admits that...
No surprise there, then
When its Kickstarter campaign came to a close, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was the biggest video game crowdfunding project in the site's history, and has only been eclipsed by Shenmue 3. The incredible response to Bloodstained - which is regarded as a spiritual successor to the "Metroidvania" sub-series of Konami's...
"We needed to bring in another team"

Over $5.5 million raised
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, widely regarded as a Castlevania successor and led by Koji Igarashi, has been a phenomenon on Kickstarter. It's become the most successful game project ever on the platform, and its success has brought plenty of stretch goals and a

"I like their wobbly movements"
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's crowdfunding drive has just three days to go and has raised over $3,700,000 at the time of writing. To drum up even more interest and perhaps encourage a final surge of backers, creator Koji Igarashi has published a video showing some off-screen footage from a very early version of...
If you squint you can see it
When Koji Igarashi - the producer on classic Castlevania titles - teased a Kickstarter campaign, there was an unsurprising meltdown online. The eventual Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Kickstarter campaign delivered what many hoped for - an action platformer that brings to mind the heritage of Igarashi-san's best work,...
What a horrible night to have a Wii U
Former Castlevania Producer (and possible vampire) Koji Igarashi has been creating some sinister headlines recently, as word of a new project whipped fans up into a frenzy of speculation. The prophetic Kickstarter reveal on Monday has indeed come to pass, but alas this new project won't be coming to Nintendo...
The moon rises
The past week was rather exciting for fans of Castlevania and Koji Igarashi's work, as Igarashi-san launched a teaser site teasing a spiritual successor, allowing curious fans to choose between a pixelated sword or whip - if this isn't a Castlevania-style project, we'll be amazed. Expected to arrive on Kickstarter - retro-themed...

"The first sign rises with the full moon. Soon, I will return"
Long-time Castlevania producer Koji "IGA" Igarashi left Konami a while back to move into indie development, but aside from a cryptic double-page PAX flyer, we've heard very little about what he's up to. However, this week could change all of that, if rumours swirling around the dark...
Could this be Koji "Iga" Igarashi's next project?
Last week, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune hosted a panel at PAX Prime, and during the event flyers appeared which seemed to hint at a new Castlevania-style adventure. The rumour is that Koji "Iga" Igarashi — who oversaw the Castlevania series and recently parted company with Konami to make games on...
"When you turn Zelda into a 2D platformer, it resembles Metroid"
We reported yesterday on the news that Koji "IGA" Igarashi has parted company with Konami after 24 years of service. Igarashi-san is perhaps best known for his work on the Castlevania series, an association which began with the seminal Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The game...
