We’ve featured our fare share of Castlevania inspired games over the years, from Castlevania Spectral Interlude on the ZX Spectrum, to the upcoming fan game of Maria Renard’s Revenge for the Commodore Amiga. Well here we are with another shout out for this classic game, as Saberman has informed us that Thelen is still working on a Castlevania game for the Atari XL/XE called Castlevania VBXE. To coincide with this news, Saberman has done a new gameplay video which gives us another look at this early development!
Castlevania was and still is an incredible action platformer, that even today can be played via emulation or through an NES and give you hours worth of enjoyment. Now however thanks to Thelen, not only can you try out the latest build of the game for the Atari XL/XE as shown by the video above, but when finished if you have a VBXE it will hopefully be the next best thing for fans of Castlevania. For further information make sure to check out the forum thread here which has more details of the development including the work in progress version 2 download.
