Castlevania: Resurrection, cancelled in March of 2000, was intended
to be the seventeenth title in the Castlevania series for the short
lived Sega Dreamcast console. This would also be the third
Castlevania game, at the time, to enter the 3D realm. The game was
to focus on Sonia Belmont and Victor Belmont, an 1800s vampire
killer who had abandoned his lineage, in 1666, directly before Simon
Belmont's mission in the original Castlevania.
Greg Orduyan, the
art director for the game, is so far the only staff member on the
project to speak of how it would have worked out. Its cancellation
is credited to many things, including disagreements between the
Japanese and American Konami teams, and the death of the Dreamcast.
It is rumored that Castlevania: Curse of Darkness uses some
environments that were originally in this game. A beta copy was
offered for sale for 3,000 Euros sometime around 2003.
