Now this looks good, very professional, I know it's a doujin game but wow that looks like a full Konami game.

I would love to see something like this on Steam so I can play it on a large screen.

Thanks to speedup in the forum for the link.

Wow, it's been 30 years since Konami released the humble game Gradius in the arcades.

So lets celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Gradius.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

by Koji Igarashi

悪魔城ドラキュラX 月下の夜想曲
Akumajō Dracula X: Gekka no Yasōkyoku
Devil's Castle Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight

In the west the game was known as:-

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

As you may know Akumajō Dracula X came out on the PlayStation the same year as Gradius Gaiden and is commonly classed as the best game in the Dracula series.

Well the original author of the game (Koji Igarashi) has just started a Kickstarter for a game in the same sort of style, Michiru Yamane who done the music for the PS game as well as many other Konami games including Otomedius X is also on board.

It's already funded within 24 hours, hopefully Konami will see this success and do something similar for the Gradius series.

Note:- This Kickstarter has nothing to do with Konami.

I would loved to see a Gradius Gaiden 2 or Gradius VI.

15th April 2015
Gradius V has now been released for the PS3 today in Japan.
