Castlevania: SotN Producer Plays The Game And Reflects

If you love video game history and you're a fan of the legendary Castlevania franchise, you know the name Koji Igarashi.

Igarashi began with 1997's awesome Symphony of the Night for PlayStation, which is a good place to start, because most fans regard it as the single greatest CV adventure ever.

But wouldn't it be great to get Koji's thoughts on the game nearly 18 years after it first released? Well, thanks to the Double Fine "Devs Play" YouTube series, now you can get exactly that: Igarashi sits down to spend a lot of time with SotN (the game Double Fine senior programmer Anna Kipnis says is her favorite title of all time), and "IGA" goes for about two hours.

For the record, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is easily in my top 5. Maybe even my top 3.

Never understood why the 3D Castlevania makers didn't just try to translate the great things about this title into a 3D world. They always tried to put their own spin on it and ended up doing okay or bad.

I'm playing Lords of Shadow 2 and it's a good action game but there isn't much 'Vania left in it.

I think SOTN even cracks my top 2. It's pretty much the perfect game to me.
