Konami's Castlevania franchise is a video gaming classic. With acclaimed entries on multiple systems – including the NES, SNES and Game Boy – the vampire-killing franchise has legions of fans all over the world, but Konami has neglected it of late. Sure, we were lucky enough to get a Castlevania Collection recently, but we haven't had an all-new entry in the series since 2014's divisive Lords of Shadow 2.

If you're sick of waiting for Konami to dust off the legendary Vampire Killer whip, then you might be interested in backing Lords of Exile, a new NES-style action platformer from one-man Spanish studio Czazuaga, which is currently doing the rounds on Kickstarter.

With a modest goal of just over £10,000 – of which almost half has been raised with 29 days remaining – Lords of Exile looks certain to reach its target. Switch is one of the target platforms – not a stretch goal – so if you want to see this game on your console, you'll need to put your money where your mouth is.
