A new Castlevania game is coming this fall in Japan, it is called CR Pachinko Castlevania, and it appears to be another Pachislot/Casino style game. However the great news from the trailer below are the characters who will be in the game. Richter Belmont, Maria Renard, Succubus, Death, Shaft, and many more well known favorites.
Pachinko Castlevania will be covered when the site redesign is complete, including artwork from the game. The redesign is still being worked on and will hopefully be done by the end of this summer, or early fall. Every single page has to be redone due to coding changes for the redesign, and there are a few surprises with the redesign that you are going to love.
The site redesign is still coming, and is still being worked on. There are currently 40 different Castlevania games covered on this site, and each page has to be redone due to the site coding changes that are being made, which is why the redesign is taking so long. But it will be worth it in the end, the new design is going to be great. It should still be finished sometime this summer.
If you are wondering why Castlevania Crypt hasn't been updated as much lately, don't worry the site is not closing, or going idle, or anything like that. Instead it is getting a redesign, all that can be said about the redesign is that it is going to be amazing.
The general layout and style of the site wont be changing much, meaning each game will still have it's own main menu links on the left side of the screen. But there are many other enhancements coming, including a few major ones that will make the site much, much better.
The redesign is already on progress, but it will take awhile since every single page is being redone due to old coding, but once it's complete you will find yourself addicted to it. There probably wont be any updates on the site till then, but once the redesign is finished the site will go back to being updated all the time.
The redesign should be done sometime this summer.
Scans of the Nintendo Power Guide for Castlevania II: Simon's Quest have been added to the site. This guide appeared in issue #2 of the Sept-Oct 1988 edition of the magazine. The classic cover of the magazine showing Simon Belomont holding Dracula's head actually caused children to have nightmares, leading their parents to complain to Nintendo.
