Pretty good interview, both Igarashi-san and Yamane-san have done wonderful things for the Castlevania series, of which I am a huge fan. Igarashi cut his teeth on the resplendent Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the PS1 and Saturn, which set a new bar for platforming games and the Castlevania series. A bar that hasn't been surpassed yet in my opinion. It's great to know that us gamers here in the states will finally get a taste of Rondo of Blood... well those that haven't imported it. :) I believe Castlevania: Vampyre's Kiss was a muddled retelling of Rondo of Blood, but I could be mistaken.
It's a shame I don't own a PSP or DS. I hope they'll make a new Castlevania game for a next gen system. Playing Castlevania on my 360 would kick so much ass.. even if it was a platformer. :D
