Nintendo Power’s big teaser for its June issue was for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate.
Welcome back Simon, we've been missing you :)
Not 2D? =/
It's 3d models walking in a single direction, think, Shinobi, or Super Mario 3D land
Super mario 3d land was full 3d
here is a better example, think Metroid Other M. 2D gameplay in 3D enviroments
the fuck? the 3ds? hopefully the REAL sequel will come on consoles
This is a totally different game to the sequel ..... well I hope it is.
Lol don't worry the 3ds was rumored to be getting a spin off of lords of shadow 2 like a week ago while all the big boys including the vita were rumored to be getting the sequel
thank god i hope so, hate it when companies release sequels on platforms i dont own...looking at you sega(valkyria chronicles)
hahaha yeah, its not like all the REAL castlevania games were on GBA and DS... oh wait...
Didn't you get the memo? The only "REAL" Castlevania games are the ones in glorious HD 3D goodness (lol)
oh so your the guy who disagreed with me I agree the games on gba and ds were amazing traditional castlevania games and i would love to see more of them but lords of shadow is a different kind of castlevania that i would also like to see more of i dont see why we cant have both
nope, wasnt me who disagreed you, though the rumor about LoS2 only included PS3/360/WiiU i think, i dont really remember seeing anything about the Vita
Those screens look rather nice.
I was hoping for HD sprites, I think that could have looked amazing on the 3DS.
Awesome news! I like Castlevania series!
Well, I am not getting it. Mercury Steam have butchered Castlevania and now they get the handheld games as well? I have been with this franchise since the first one, and saddly I and finished with the games it would seem. Mercury Steam have killed the story by creating their own story line, and now we don't even get the Japanese based handheld games.
We'll get 2D Japanese ones again eventually I'm sure. the story is pretty convoluted though. I'd like to see a new 2D cv as much as anyone, but only if it doesn't feel like a regurgitation of the past titles. They walk a fine line so maybe its good theyll have a long time to work on new ideas.
Dear God! Does this mean we wont see Soma Cruz or shanoa ever again.?
Sorry Mercury Steam did not butcher the series. Lords of shadow was a damn great game...
This, my dear boy, is an opinion. Don't parade it as a fact. MSteam took a game about facing Dracula's evil army as a member of a family dedicated to stopping him and turned you into some bloke who ran into Pan, Pixies, an annoying ass Chupocabra, and faced Satan in a cloud like G String at the end. They have no clue what the hell they're doing!
ok classic castlevania isnt dead just chill we'll see it again
it was but the handhelds are what kept the SOTN style games going.. Theyve definitely butchered the handhelds version.. Castlevania is why i bought a 3ds cuz i knew that they would make it but this is an abomination.. PS2 character models with PS1 environments? I will never accept this.. I loved PS3 LOS but the handhelds version couldve been the ultimate castlevania in 2D sprites & 3D layered backgrounds.. But mercury steam is too damn lazy to hand draw it all..
There goes hand drawn greatness.. It might be somewhat cool on 3ds but keep it traditional on there & save the polygons for the big boys.. I was hoping to one day play one that topples SOTN in 2D with vibrant colors & 3D layered platforming but whatever
http://nintendoeverything.c... heres screenshots.. looks like gamecube but idk i hope its good cuz thats why i got a 3ds
I'll most likely pass on this, as I prefer the hand drawn sprites and I prefer Shanoa over anybody else. Plus I hate westernized art styles
