Castlevania news has been abuzz recently, what with the announcement of a Netflix series centered around the classic franchise. From an interview with Konami's European Brand Manager Richard Jones, it has been revealed that Konami is internally discussing the prospect of bringing a Castlevania game to the Nintendo Switch. The company has already revived one retro franchise on the platform in the form of Super Bomberman R, so a future Castlevania project could be possible.
Miketendo64 was able to sit down with Jones and ask him questions about Super Bomberman R and other future Konami titles. In response to what Konami games could make it to Switch, Jones answered specifically by bringing up the Castlevania franchise.
"All I can say is that there is lots of internal discussions going on within Konami regarding what games we can bring to the Nintendo Switch, other than Bomberman, a game which we are well aware of its heritage and how loved it and Castlevania is. So much so that Castlevania is getting is getting its own show on Netflix and because of that, we're hearing a lot of desires from our fans for a new Castlevania series. So we do know there is a demand for a new game, but right now nothing is set in stone as the discussions are still on going." — Richard Jones, Konami European Brand Manager
