IGA: Has whip, will travel.

IGA is the current producer of Konami’s legendary Castlevania series and he had this to say when Nintendo World Report quizzed him about future plans:

NWR: Now that Rondo of Blood has been remade for PSP, do you see any possibility of it being released on Virtual Console or remade for DS or WiiWare?

IGA: It’s actually available in Japan on Virtual Console. With regards to WiiWare, I’m evaluating that right now, and to be honest, I think a 2D Castlevania game on WiiWare might be the right approach.

NWR: Would you consider taking the same approach that Capcom is with Mega Man 9?

IGA: Yes, I am evaluating that. As you might know, the Castlevania franchise has appeared on several platforms, so I am exploring a lot of different options right now.

In the world of videogames, that response is as good as a “Yes, we’re working on a 2D WiiWare Castlevania” as you’re likely to get.
