According to a recent interview, it seems that Konami might be open to outsourcing more of their IPs.
Last month NES retro action/adventure RPG made a comeback with GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon. This is a sequel to Getsu Fūma Den which was originally released in 1987 and was exclusive to Japan.
GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon will be developed by indie studio GuruGuru in partnership with Konami and will also return with a 2D perspective with modernised visuals and gameplay.
So the fact that Konami has outsourced the Getsu Fūma Den, has left many fans hoping that Konami will do the same for the likes of Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, and Castlevania.
In an interview withJPGames (picked up byVGC), the producer at Konami Shin Murato teased that the company might be open to outsourcing more of their IPs in the future.
“We are continually inspired by various indie titles, and how they innovate and produce exciting games,” said Murato.
We felt that GetsuFumaDen would be an interesting IP to bring back to follow this indie approach, and so we decided to contact GuruGuru as we know the team well.
“They had been exploring new approaches for graphical design and thought they would be a great fit for this IP. It also helped that there were fans of the original GetsuFumaDen game within the GuruGuru team.
“In terms of other collaborations, please wait for future projects like this!” added Murato.
Do you think that Konami might outsource the likes of Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, and Castlevania? Let us know across our social media channels.
GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon will be released for PC and Nintendo Switch in 2022.
