I don't think Konami's too interested in releasing anything anyone actually wants. But it would be awesome if they'd rerelease some of those older Vania titles. As far as I know, the only way to actually play the DS titles is to have the cartridge and a DS or 3DS. At least there are a few options for SotN if you have a Sony console or a 360. DXC's a good buy, and the 360 version has achievements if you're into that.
I'm hoping that the rise of the switch gets Konami to change their mind on a number of franchises. As a fan (and former employee), I think they have so much untapped potential.
I hope so. Konami owns two of my favorite IPs in Castlevania and Metal Gear, but the recent treatment of these titles and loss of key producers in each series is discouraging.

Yeesh, I'm kind of late to respond to this, but after some recent updates it was definitely a good idea to delay it even more. Not to mention my own wishes to take as much time as needed if not more for quality assurance. No need to rush a game like this.
As far as the Vita(and the Wii U for that matter), I really wasn't surprised. Both of those consoles were basically abandoned for better or worse. I do feel bad for the Vita to an extent, but least the obnoxious port begging can sto-I mean at least you guys have some memories to hold on to. Relax, I'm joking. Besides, the switch port begging is just as bad now.
Redogan: ^^ Game looks pretty solid....for a mobile game. Maybe it will do well.

Yän: They already lost many of their best people. Even if they made some decent choices again, they'd never get back to their glory days

Ryngar Acia: It still seems like they a have fair amount of talented people, though. I dunno about returning the "glory days" but they could still be doing so much better, if the higher-ups would just pull their heads out of their butts.

purifyweirdshard: I think they'll do something decent again, eventually. The new mobile game might not be that thing, but the anniversary collection was a step in a good direction
