Konami considering reviving more classic titles in the future

Don't you love Castlevania? Konami's own Ken Ogasawara loves it more than you probably do -- he recently sat down to discuss the upcoming PSP title Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles as well as Konami's plans for bringing more titles back. Ogasawara thanks the online marketplaces like the PSN, Xbox Live, and Wii's Virtual Console for bringing back classic arcade titles, hoping the revival continues with fan favorite games like Rondo of Blood, a Castlevania title never before released in the US.

Because of our extensive coverage of this game already, hands-on and all, we've nothing new to say from a gameplay standpoint (though it bears mentioning again that all the Symphony of the Night voice-overs were re-recorded to sound less cheesy/campy), but we would like to point out Ogasawara's open-mindedness to bring further classic titles back into the spotlight -- not as remakes, but released over the PSN or Xbox Live. Hopefully these will be downloadable to our PSP's. We'd love to try our hand at Castlevania III again. We got angry and busted up our NES cartridge because we always took the very, very difficult paths.
