Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi Has Left Konami

Most noted for his legendary work on Castlevania: Symphony of The Night, Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi has left Konami in search of a more independent future, with the intentions of starting a new studio.

“I’ve decided to break out on my own to have the freedom to make the kind of games I really want to make — the same kind I think fans of my past games want as well,” Igarashi-san told IGN. “Leaving Konami was a big decision, and not one I took lightly – I’ve spent my entire career there, made many friends, and had a lot of great opportunities – but I hope all the gamers and fans who have supported me in the past will join me in being excited about what comes next. Wish me luck!”

Igarashi-san will hold a panel at the Game Developers Conference which happens this week. In the panel, he will talk about his approach to game development and some of his influences.

We wish you all the best Igarashi-san!
