Castlevania’s Simon Belmont will be joining Super Smash Brother Ultimate’s roster of all-star characters, amongst a few other new characters.
Konami out of nowhere has announced the latest instalment in the long-running Castlevania series of games with Castlevania: Grimoire Of Souls.
The voice cast for Netflix’s upcoming Castlevania series has officially been announced.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night just received a new trailer ahead of E3 this year.
MercurySteam, the independent studio behind the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series of games, dropped some information for their upcoming pulpy, sci-fi asymmetric co-op and competitive online game, Raiders of the Broken Planet.
This year marks Castlevania: Symphonia of the Night’s 20th anniversary and though Konami may let the year go by with little fanfare, celebration of the classic 1997 Platformer RPG should practically be considered mandatory.
I may be one of the few people who didn’t hate 2014’s Dracula Untold, mainly because it seemed to me, at the time, like the closest thing to a live-action Castlevania movie we were ever going to get. However, that all changed as Netflix announced an exclusive mini-series for the beloved game.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has earned a lot of buzz over the past year. For good reason, might I add. Developed by Inti Creates, Bloodstained is the Castlevania spiritual successor that many fans have been dying to see. Led by Koji “Iga” Igarashi, the assistant director of the PlayStation 1 hit Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the upcoming game looks phenomenal. As Jed Whitaker pointed out earlier this year, it has “great music, a gothic aesthetic, ghoulish enemies, and massive bosses.” But today, it was revealed that Bloodstained‘s release timeline has been pushed back to the first six months of 2018.
MercurySteam has officially announced their newest game for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Raiders of the Broken Planet has been a highly anticipated project since it was first teased back in March, although it was previously untitled. The announcement came via a tweet from the MercurySteam account:

Not much is currently known about the game, but it will be a multiplayer adventure. There is an open beta for Raiders of the Broken Planet currently available for sign-up on MercurySteam’s website.
MercurySteam is the developer behind Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, among other projects. The developer also reportedly worked on a Metroid prototype for Wii U and 3DS that was turned down last year.
Rumours have been swirling for a while now about Konami and it giving up on the AAA scene. But it seems these reports may be unfounded.
Many rumors have surfaced that Konami has decided to leave the AAA industry, abandoning the Metal Gear, Silent Hill and Castlevania franchises.
On a very full edition of the Pixels and Ink Podcast everyone loves monthly boxes, so when Nintendo announced their own version of them, everyone seems interested.
