Mis-blamed: Heavily debated, but generally the accusations that IGA is sexist, mostly for removing Sonia and Castlevania Legends from continuity. Not helped by his clumsy explanation when interviewed by EGM and asked whether fans could expect a female protagonist at some point in the future:
IGA: "It's possible I guess. Although, I purposefully left the Sonia Belmont character (from Castlevania: Legends for GBC) out of the official Castlevania chronology. (laughs) Usually, the vampire storyline motifs, females tend to be sacrificed. It's easier to come up with weak, feminine characters. I'll think about it more in the future, though."
