When celebrated Castlevania developer Koji Igarashi announced he would be making a spiritual successor to the legendary franchise, fans of the Metroidvania genre flocked to Kickstarter to make it one of the most successful video game campaigns at the time. Of course, crowdfunding can be a somewhat risky endeavor for consumers if the end product can’t come to fruition, but Igarashi has been quite good about keeping the fans up to date, as can be seen in this most recent video update.
Rather than showing off a seemingly completed product, Igarashi gives a behind-the-scenes look at how stages are put together, and what an area looks like before being filled in with the promised Gothic-styled visuals and populated with horrible monsters of the night. Of course, it might not seem like a lot to look at now, but keep in mind the game still isn’t expected to launch until March 2017 on numerous systems including Wii U. So, I think it’s safe to assume we’ll see plenty more of the game between now and then.
