Jeremy Parish just posted a short, but amazing interview with Koji Igarashi, the creator of some of the most beloved games in the Castlevania series. The interview added an interesting perspective to games like Symphony Of The Night, as they discussed how the original Legend Of Zelda…and most especially A Link To The Past was one of the main inspirations for SotN’s action + exploration elements.
While some people may have heard or read Koji Igarashi talk about this before, I really enjoyed listening to the discussion as they played through ALttP and think that any fan of Igarashi, or those games would really enjoy hearing it!
You know how Koji Igarashi has said his metroidvania adventures owe more to Zelda than to Metroid? I sat down with him (and a copy of A Link to the Past!) to talk about it for this Games Behind The Games video: https://t.co/3XlZg6tG87
