Fending off crowds at E3 last week, I found a moment to sit down and briefly chat with Konami’s legendary Koji “IGA” Igarashi. IGA was there to promote the upcoming Xbox LIVE Arcade title, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, a multiplayer action title that supports up to six players over Xbox LIVE.
Certainly this would be possible on the PlayStation 3’s PlayStation Network, right?
With Harmony of Dispair out this summer, the current future of the Castlevania series as laid out by Konami finds the series headed to iPhone as well as Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as a retail title. The former, a versus puzzle game called Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night, has IGA only overseeing the project on a consultation basis, as well as providing graphics and music. The latter is a full-blown third-person action adventure title called Castlevania: Lord of Shadows, being developed by European studio MercurySteam, in conjunction with Kojima Productions; IGA has little to no involvement in the title.
