    I... will have to get it. I love Castlevania too much not to, and I can only hope that the same composer behind SOTN, LOI, and COD does the music.

    Anyways, I agree with the sarcastic remark of the article, and this is just not what the Castlevania fans want. Personally, I think they pushed the portables to the limit and it's time to see what the consoles can do with an actual full featured new 2D castlevania. I play the portable Castlevanias, but I really don't like playing on portables and I would be happy if Konami even followed Capcom and made some upates or new entries and released them on as a Xbox live arcade game.

    AAAAAAAnyways, that pic shows Alucard and Simon, but their outfits don't look all too much like them... and if Alucard doesn't get a cape (it doesn't look like he does there) thent he game is utterly useless.

    Is there any potential for this not to be awful?

    Why can't Konami make a decent next-gen Castlevania? :(

    I hear you, they're one of the few that hasn't successfully been able to convert an old franchise to 3D :(

    Castlevania games should always be in 2D. Period.

    3D Fighting game? Those rarely turn out well. Maybe if they borrow an engine from an existing fighter like Soul Calibur or at least MK Armageddon.

    Aside from that this would need a metric assload of fanservice to make anything worthwhile.

    Hoping the CV64 characters are in it at least. I'd love to see Carrie, Reinhardt, and Cornel again. Also maybe Chainsaw Frankenstein.

    I really was trying to keep an open mind about this game, but after seeing it in motion, I think it looks like ass.

    Judge for yourself.
    (See what I did there?)

    I really like Takeshi Obata, but Simon Belmont is not Light Yagami and Maria Renard is not Misa Misa.

    "I'm a Belmont, that's my job."

    The character models look like shit.

    I'll probably buy the game just because of the Castlevania brand, but maybe after a price drop or two. Like others, I can't wait for the new DS game...at least it'll be good!

    they need to stop being afraid of making 2d games on consoles. with the power of consoles today you could whip out some really awesome 2d games.

    I'll third that, i'm not buying another Castlevania until they move back to big consoles and start putting a similar amount of effort into them as SOTN.
