While Konami isn’t quite the video game juggernaut it used to be, it still finds time to bring out games from time to time, and they’re usually on the smaller scale. Case in point, today’s Indie World presentation featured a look at an all new game from the studio, developed in collaboration with GuruGuru – GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon.

You may be surprised to learn that the game is actually a follow-up to a 1987 Famicom game, Getsu Fūma Den, which never saw a release outside of Japan. Various characters did appear in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair as DLC worldwide, however.

This come-back entry maintains the action focus but naturally is a major leap graphically, going for a traditional Japanese artstyle approach.

Getsufumaden: Undying Moon will launch via Steam Early Access on May 14th, complete with a digital copy of the original Famicom game, while Switch owners will have to wait for the full release in 2022.
