A new public listing by game developer and publisher Konami reveals that it is the hallmark of the Castlevania & Metal Gear Rising series in Japan.

Fans are likely aware of the unconfirmed news and rumors that multiple remakes of Metal Gear Solid are in the works. Now, the Japanese development and publishing giant of Konami games recently made public that it has several video game titles in Japan as a trademark. This includes non-specific titles from the Castlevania action-adventure platformer series, and the popular secret video game Metal Gear Rising.



While there have been no confirmed announcements about new games under Castlevania, and even more so under the Metal Gear series, many fans are speculating that official news will be shared with the public soon. Konami has just been listed as one of the gaming companies it will be exhibiting during E3 2021, so it's not surprising that rumors and leaks have circulated in each of the series' fan communities.

According to the Japanese website chizai-watch.com, Konami registered the trademark on April 6, 2021 for Metal Gear Rising and Akumajou Dracula, or the Japanese title of the Castlevania series. The list came out two weeks later on April 20, 2021, and fans are likely interested in what these trademarks will mean for both series. Roughly translated by Google, the trademark lists several interesting categories such as game software, game program, virtual reality headset, and more. That gives a big hint about possible new titles for Castlevania, and a likely remake or remaster of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

While the Castlevania series has experienced a rekindling of awareness and engagement through its Netflix animated series counterpart, there hasn't been any video game additions since Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 in 2014. The same can be said for the Metal Gear franchise, whose The last Metal Gear Survive title was released in 2018. However, fans will likely agree that this is largely due to Konami's highly publicized departure of the game's creator Hideo Kojima, possibly bringing with it the core essence of the favorite stealth game. of cult.


With E3 2021 set for its next digital event on June 12-15, 2021, hopefully fans and gamers won't have to wait long to get answers to their speculations. Many gamers are probably waiting for Konami to finally update the public on new titles from Castlevania, Metal Gear, and even the Silent Hill horror game series. Given the recent trend of video game remakes and remasters, it's likely that Konami is just getting ready to port its popular, evergreen titles to next-gen consoles as a way to capitalize on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S market.
