Castlevania: Circle of the Moon is coming to the Wii U Virtual Console in North America on October 9th, just 1 week after Dracula X is released on the VC. Circle of the Moon was originally released on the Game Boy Advance back in 2001. This will be the 1st Castlevania Game Boy Advance title to appear on the Wii U in the United States.
shmuplations.com has translated some interviews with game developers for Castlevania Chronicles and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. These interviews were done in 1993 and 1997, during each game's release. There are 2 interviews for SOTN including Koji Igarashi, and 2 interviews for Chronicles, which was known in Japan as Akumajou Dracula x68000.
Castlevania: Dracula X is coming to the Wii U Virtual Console in the United States on October 2nd, just 2 weeks away. This is the SNES version, which has never been released on a Virtual Console before. Many fans might be playing it for the first time ever, since copies of this game are known to be ridiculously overpriced on eBay.
New images of all enemies from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate have been added. There are new pics of Dracula, Lost Soul, Necromancer, Toy Maker, Succubus, Daemon Lord, Zombies, Skeletons, and more...
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow producer David Cox has resigned from Konami to explore new opportunities. Cox started with the company in 1997 as UK Product Manager, and worked his way up to lead producer by 2010 for Lords of Shadow.
Cox's departure from Konami could mean the end of the Lords of Shadow era, but if so where will the series go? Maybe we can finally get the 1999 game with Julius Belmont as the main character. It's sad that the Nintendo 3DS has been out since 2011, and we only have 1 Castlevania title on it. There were 3 excellent Castlevania games released for both the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS within the first 4 years of each console's release. Hopefully Konami will bring back the addicting SOTN/Metroid style games for the handheld systems, and do 3D style games for PS4/Xbox.
While Cox may be remembered for the Lords of Shadow era, he will never be forgotten for his responses to one very impatient person on Twitter in regards to DLC for the 1st LOS game:
