Konami has been shifting away from the game development business recently, but hey, this decline eventually stopped, and now Konami is back on its track, starting off the business with GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon. It will be a reboot for a Famicom game from 1987.
Details about the release date have been given on Indie World Showcase, and surprisingly enough, Konami for the first time will be releasing the game first in Early Access. The early access will begin for PC, and the release of the full game has been planned for 2022.
We also got to know that Konami will be attending E3 2021, this news alone makes everything better for us, now adding this fantastic reboot on top of it is just fabulous. It’s really good to see that Konami is going back to its roots, stopping the decline in the game development sector.
This reboot will tell the stories that take place 1,000 years after the original GetsuFumaDen lore. And turns out, the development for this game has been going on for a while now. Konami producer Shin Murato spoke to Inverse, giving in-depth details about the game.
“We began planning for this title in 2018. During this time, we noticed that indie titles and relatively small game projects with high artistic elements and game systems (many times with Japanese themes) really stood out. Because of this, we wanted to try and pursue a title that matched these criteria.”
This could be just the beginning for Konami, which is likely the case. When taken into consideration, this actually could mean that we could be getting a new Silent Hill game or a remastered version in the future.
