Koji Igarashi's new game teased during MN9 panel at PAX?

#2
I am really excited about this game. It will probably another metroidvania without the castlevania name. Kinda sucks that he had to leave Konami =/.

That tear in the middle makes no sense. The left and right pretty much line up except for where the game name + creator is in the text. There should've been more taken off the insides
 

Aokage

Pretty nice guy (apart from the blue shadows thing...)

Who designed the Inafune fliers and why do they parody Die Hard GameFan so closely? (See the copyright text on the very bottom.)

Don't get me wrong, it's pretty funny and pretty accurate.

Anyway, I'm buying whatever IGA's selling.

Edit:

Some odd fine print they have there.
It's from a... famous GameFan passage.

Looks very Vania to me.. awesome.

Genius.

At the very least it means Inafune can help IGA in setting up shop and how to get financial help. the guy is a good business man.

Even as one of IGA's critics, consider me interested.

If nothing else, it'll be interesting to see what he crafts when he no longer has decades old Dracula X-era sprites to utilize for the umpteenth time! Not to mention what he'll have to do in order to stand out, since "Metroidvania-style" gameplay isn't exactly a unique thing among indie games, now.

Michiru Yamane on board for soundtrack. Or I will riot, yes, a one man riot.

so uh...where are we getting koji igarashi from this, again?
There are several hints. "Turn your world upside down" refers to Symphony of the Night. The bloody sigil is similar to the glyphs you had to draw in Dawn of Sorrow and killing enemies to gain their abilities has been a staple of the series since Aria of Sorrow on the GBA :p. Plus the art man.

Castlevania doesnt have medieval japanese temples, so its not Castlevania.
Of course it's not Castlevania, Konami has the rights for the series. But really, Aria of Sorrow starts in a Japanese temple and the main character is Japanese (unlike the translated version would have you believe).
 
#37
Hell yes.

It'll be interesting to see what he does with the formula when he doesn't have to keep bringing Castlevania elements into it.
 
#44
He hasn't hinted at anything on his FB page, other than visiting Bandai recently... Gosh, I sure hope this is true. Will buy every expensive version of this if true... I really miss true Metroidvania games....

"yeah, that is going to be the game on the Ultra 64."

What does that quote mean? Is it just supposed to be a joke line or something? Obviously, we all know that the Ultra 64 became renamed the Nintendo 64. Is this a hint at a console? Obviously not the n64, but is this a hint that the game is coming to Nintendo?
