A dedicated Castlevania fan has been working on a remake of the original game using Unreal Engine 4 for the past year or so, and he recently released a playable demo. Unsurprisingly, Konami has taken issue with this unlicensed product, and they've issued a cease and desist order.

According to the game's latest update, Konami is allowing the videos and demo to remain uploaded under the condition that no further updates are released. Creator Dejawolfs states that he's currently talking with Konami UK to try to work out some sort of licensing deal, but it looks unlikely at this point.
