I have no doubt that there will probably be save rooms like in the past, which I am perfectly fine with, but do you think that the pickup-and-setdown convenience of most modern games with checkpoints and/or manual saves work well in an Igavania of 2018?

I second the previously used methods: Save rooms and a"suspend"feature.
If we were to modernize this idea they could add a save and continue feature where character stats, items, and all progress gets saved but when the player loads they are placed at the last save room.
I'm also not against a means to save and continue from anywhere form either. I think this works best for incredibly linear games with loads of plot that can't be skipped, open world games littered with items to collect, and any other game where the player would be more than mildly inconvenienced by reverting to a 10 minute old save.
Busterific: Is there an echo in here?

Redogan: OK, Army of the Night. Tell the truth...how many of you went back and played CVIII: Dracula's Curse once you saw the Curse of the Moon reveal? I know I did. Beat it with Trevor/Sypha.

Scars Unseen: I don't know why, but I have a bit of trouble getting back into the Oldvania games these days. They were some of my favorite games growing up(especially SCIV), but I just prefer the Igavanias so much more.

ghaleon: I remember renting and playing megaman 3 for the first time at my friend's house.. it didn't come with the instruction manual, and we didn't know you could slide since you can't in 1 and 2
May 21, 2018 21:46:26 GMT -6
ghaleon: So there was a stage where you had to slide to progress and we spent like an hour going wtf. so we were like. zomg. lets kill snake man first, and then we can slither past it! GENIUS! *headdesk*

Galamoth: I remember going through the entirety of Mega Man 4 without knowing he could charge his default weapon, one time. Just rapid-fire away!

Brainiac: I might have to wait a little longer than that to have the time for it unless my download code arrives early. If so, I might be able to preset the download before I go to sleep and have it ready on my 3DS that morning. Breaks at work would be quite nice.
