Hideo Kojima has reiterated that his production company is playing more of a supervisory role than anything else with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.
He said this already when it was announced at E3, but apparently, he wants to make sure everyone knows it. It’s really Konami Europe’s Dave Cox and Mercury Steam’s baby.
“Kojima Productions is playing more of a support role,” Kojima told to Famitsu. “Castlevania is one of Konami’s most important brands, one that’s seen many releases since the original, and they’ve all been received warmly, but there’s never been a Castlevania created to really satisfy Western gamers. People like Dave were influenced by Castlevania to become game designers, and now they’re making titles like God of War.
“This has become a big project, one with the idea that we needed to make a Castlevania which had that same kind of feverish Western support, and that’s why Kojima Productions came in to help. I think it’s safe to look forward to this title both as a Castlevania game and as an action game.
“It’s got great gameplay and great action, and the graphics are good even to Japanese eyes,” he added.
Kojima’s role so far, he says, is “having them fix things based on my objective viewpoint”, like reworking the hero’s face, which Kojima felt needed to be more “heroic”.
