    IGN: Castlevania Next to be Reborn wonder if it'll be 8bit looking ala megaman 9 or will it be 16bit like the snes or genesis games i'm leaning towards 8bit thats my gut feeling.

    I'd prefer a more SotN approach to the graphics, gameplay and options.

    well if you go by gradius and contra rebirth then it'll probably be a 16bit game like castlevania IV or dracula X

    Sounds like it's based off the mediocre Game Boy "Adventure" franchise...which is a disappointment at this time.

    I hope it goes back to the NES/SNES style, especially something like III with the multiple paths. I'm sick of the Castriod set up.

    Yes, but Castriod sounds funnier to me. :D 

    (Cast/tlevania + Me/triod)

    hopefully it's not the umpteenth remake of #1 we already have 1,IV,& ps1 chronicles not to mention the arcade version haunted castle as well as the european/japanese only vampire killer i'm hoping it's an all new story but has the look and feel of a nes/snes/gen/pc-engine game and yeah i've kinda grown tired of the castroid/metroidvania setup it'll be refreshing to have a new oldschool straightforward castlevania branching paths are welcome like III or dracula X my other hope is it's not like II i played II and found it kind of tedidious and destracting

    People cry for another SoTN clone.
    SoTN clone sells poorly.
    People pretend it didn't happen and cry for another.

    The formula is stale. Do something else. I myself like CV3 style branching paths.

    LOL. Forget SOTN or any other debate like that.

    Seeing as this is going to be a 2D release it should be HD or nothing, so really, 360 or PS3.

    Murky 480p Wii graphics would pretty much kill any 2D release. IMO.

    You miss the whole point of this remake. the Wii is a classic gamer's dream. There's tons of modern remakes and revivals on the system (MM9 was originally supposed to be a Wii exclusive, for example). Contra Rebirth, Gradius Rebirth, these are also exclusive to the Wii. This whole market is one of the absolutely best things to own a Wii for.

    murky graphics? yeah, that sure killed muramasa, megaman 9, contra rebirth, blah blah blah blah blah. (none of these had murky graphics on the wii, by the way)
