According to a report by SlashGear, which cites a report published by Video Games Chronicle, three Konami franchises may be getting new additions to their roster of games.
“Castlevania” is an action-adventure video game series with gothic horror elements that Konami first released in 1986. The first game in the series, simply titled “Castlevania,” was first playable on the Family Computer Disk System, followed by the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).
“Castlevania” was rebooted in 2010 with the release of “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.” Thus far, the last game released under the series is “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2,” which was released in 2014.
