Seems Game Informer had an interesting chat with Koji Igarashi(that’s “Mr. Castlevania” to you), which reveals a little insight as to perhaps why Microsoft’s XBox 360 hasn’t exactly lit up the island nation:

“Apparently, Japanese gamers only like three games, because as Igarashi says, “… if Japanese developers would say they’re working on Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest or Metal Gear maybe, then I guess Japanese consumers would take it [Xbox 360] seriously and consider purchasing it.”

Also, it seems that co-op Castlevania with Portrait of Ruin on the Nintendo DS isn’t entirely out of the question.
