10/02/1997 was Castlevania: Symphony of the Night's release in North America.
I think it is more than a mere coincidence that we saw Mana's art revealed yesterday on this fateful day and anniversary, a piece given which evokes a familiar feel and aesthetic while being a completely new and beautiful style. A celebration, but a clear moving forward - and that is what we are all about as a whole, here. That is the essence of Bloodstained - fans, creators, and fans who become creators like Mana herself pushing their efforts, time and support forward for what they love and the game they believe in.
A cornerstone for that belief being built, SotN will always be revered for what it was, what it is and what it means to us. I would invite everyone here to share their thoughts and stories about the game, how they came upon it, what they felt while playing it, and any other impactful memories you have of the experience. What of that do you already see reflected in Bloodstained, and what do you hope to see?
Also yesterday, our forum hit over 2000 registered members. We are celebrating this as well!
Originally, I was thinking I would pick one respondent out and send them something of Symphony, but honoring the game, us, and Iga-san more I think, I will instead give that person a $60 tier of their choice or an equivalent amount of Fangamer/Sanshee items (shirts, buttons, stickers) of their choosing. This will be open for a week, until 10/10.
Lastly, don't forget to vote in the poll for Mana's artwork here!:
edit: It has been pointed out that international shipping costs can run very high. I'm aware of that, but it doesn't necessarily exclude international members from receiving a prize. Depending on what the winner wants, we could still do $60 digital, two $28 digitals, or the combined cost of Fangamer/Sanshee merch + shipping that rounds close to $60. Depending on the winner/situation, I might be willing to work something out, too. Don't worry about it for now!
