Castlevania announced for the PS2
Konami of America announced recently that it will be releasing Castlevania on the Playstation 2. Very little information was revealed, citing that specific information will be available at E3 this May. According to Konami, Castlevania will be successful because by "maximizing the processing power of the console, the ominous drama of the franchise will be realized through exhilarating action, a rich story, breathtaking environments, dazzling next-generation graphics and a sweeping musical soundtrack."
Castlevania is being completely revamped, so expect an entirely new engine for the PS2. Also, producer Koji Igarashi from Konami Tokyo is developing the game, as he is responsible for Castlevania Symphony of the Night, GBA Castlevania Harmony of Dissonance, and upcoming GBA Castlevania Aria of Sorrow.
