Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Is Igas Nod to a Fan Favorite

From Variety: “Koji Igarashi gets it. The man who is known simply as Iga knows why people are still in love with Castlevania: Symphony of the Night more than 20 years after its release.

The first PlayStation title in the 33-year-old franchise redefined the series, shifting away from linear side-scrolling and adopting the gated exploration mechanics of Nintendos Metroid games. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is directly inspired by Alucards adventure through Draculas castle, with gameplay so similar that fans will immediately draw lines back to Igas past work.”
