Konami recently revealed it was revisiting the classic title GetsuFumaDen which is being developed by indie studio GuruGuru in collaboration with Konami. GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon producer at Konami, Shin Murato, revealed how the revival came about and says that Konami is planning to revisit more of its classic back catalogue using different studios, as they have done with GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon. Here’s what Mr. Murato told Japanese website JPGames.
“We are continually inspired by various indie titles, and how they innovate and produce exciting games. We felt that GetsuFumaDen would be an interesting IP to bring back to follow this indie approach, and so we decided to contact GuruGuru as we know the team well.”
“They had been exploring new approaches for graphical design and thought they would be a great fit for this IP. It also helped that there were fans of the original GetsuFumaDen game within the GuruGuru team.”
“In terms of other collaborations, please wait for future projects like this!”
