Hmmm very interesting, hopefully we will see a remake of Soul Reaver. The original game was superb but totally messed up due to lack of space on the disc, if you take a look at was originally intended for the game, you will be blown away.

Ah yes I remember reading this myself sometime ago what im wishing is an HD trilogy remake with the missing content like a directors cut but if its a reboot I dont know how I would feel about that but im sure to have an open mind considering the original team that made the series arent 100% together some split to other places but I am interested where this is going nonetheless

Don't get excited, its probably for an iOS game. I'm not trolling either, if we look at SE's recent shift in resources and production output. They've done like 20 mobile games to every console game this last year.

Personally, they offer me little as a consumer anymore. Other than cash-ins on nostalgia.

Yes!!! I really hope it's another LOK game.

I agree but... "Square Enix registers Legacy of Kain domain"

Squenix is doing it.... They better not mess this up, Legacy of Kain is one of the best Vampire tails ever told so they need to handle it well, and not turn it into Twilight.
Seraphim  +   528d ago
handle it right. all they need to do is remake LoK Blood Omen. I'd even take the same style. Completely redone visually & I'd bite. Easily one of the best games/experiences when I was a teen... I'd say remake the complete series including Soul Reaver but BO2 was a bloody mess. Just an atrocious game..... Defiance did it best but even that had many flaws. Nothing significant enough to make it a bad game but enough to make a solid game nothing better than average at best....

LoK. Crystal Dynamics. Yes Please. Just please make it a great game & don't go botching the story line....

Square-Enix are definitely just publishing it for Eidos, who will develop it.

People don't seem to realize this. Square-Enix are only involved in games like Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Hitman and Just Cause at the capacity of publisher. THEY HAVE NO CREATIVE INVOLVEMENT WITH THE GAME.

Get Amy Henning to write the story and it will do wonders for whatever Platform(s) it is on or at least for the fans of the series.

Let's just hope that it's on a console/handheld instead of some crappy Ios spin-off.

Interested to see what they will do with this.

Loved the game on the ps1.
Pozzle  +   527d ago
I know it will probably never happen...but it would be cool if they kept her script for the Lok: Defiance sequel that got canned. Apparently it was pretty epic. :O

Mouktouk  +   528d ago
Finally some great news! I don't care much if it's a remake, a reboot or a sequel, as long as they keep the high quality standard of the series.

I'm seriously pumped, please don't screw things up!

From the ps2 era? I was a PC gamer through most of that but did they even release a Soul Reaver on the ps2? I thought there was only two games and both were ps1.
Mouktouk  +   528d ago

Legacy of Kain HD Collection? All the games remastered?
aiBreeze  +   528d ago
I just hope Square Enix is just publishing and is giving the responsibility to someone capable of doing the name justice.
wishingW3L  +   528d ago
of-course the developers are Eidos, Deus Ex HR was epic.

HarryMasonHerpderp  +   528d ago
A new game/reboot would NEED the original voice actors for Kain and Raziel.
Mouktouk  +   528d ago
Definitely.

I'm French and played Legacy of Kain series with French dubs, but when available, I played the games again in English, just for the pleasure of hearing the English counterparts. Even the German voices were awesome, that was really great work.

I can't even imagine how a Legacy of Kain game would be without the original casting, or without the wonderful narration of the series.
ACEMANWISE  +   528d ago
Did you ever play Lara Croft and the Guardian of
Light?

It was released in 2010 on PSN and PC. It offered a Raziel and Kain DLC character pack that featured the original actors' voices.

Interestingly this game was published by Square-Enix. I would say it very likely the voice acting is still around given the fact they reprised their roles less than 3 years ago.

Anyway check out the DLC pack on Youtube.
Ezz2013  +   528d ago
if they got another voice actor for Kain
i will be very angry ...and they won't like me when i'm angry
BlackWolf  +   528d ago
Oh yeah.... :)
By the name of the doamin, I guess it will be a sequel for Defiance, continuing the story where it left.
Let's hope that Eidos is completely in charge of the development, of course. If SE is making the games instead... I don't even wanna think about it.

The voice actor for Kain is in the show the Neighbors. He is also the voice and face for the lead villain in Dead Space 3. I do not know about Raziel.
hano  +   528d ago
Interesting. I remember this RPG used to be huge back in the day. Even though it was broken.

Then came Soul Reaver which wasn't an RPG but had a great story, but the end game felt kind of rushed.

I hope they restore the magic the series used to have.
Pozzle  +   527d ago
"Then came Soul Reaver which wasn't an RPG but had a great story, but the end game felt kind of rushed."

It was. The publishers wanted it released by a certain date so the devs had to cut about a third of the game. There's a site on the 'net somewhere that chronicled all the info, videos and screens of the cut content and it really shows how huge the game could have been.
Grimhammer00  +   528d ago
This series still has the most compelling vampire story if ever read/seen.

Love it!

Cool news, maybe we'll finally see a well deserved next gen or current gen revival.
oakshin  +   528d ago
The actor of the oracle died he was epic like the rest of them. My favorite gaming franchise OF ALL TIME BRING IT!
Max-Zorin  +   528d ago
I was wondering if this game would ever come back for a while.
animegamingnerd  +   528d ago
i did see a rumor while back that crystal dynamics who are currently working on the tomb raider reboot is working a new legacy of kain
Son_Lee  +   528d ago
Maybe this will motivate me to finish the first Soul Reaver.
TenkoTAiLS  +   528d ago
Man its amazing how many people haven't played the first game, Legacy of Kain. And seem to think that it all began with Soul Reaver.
solidboss07  +   527d ago
I want this more than Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes or The Last Guardian. And yes, I forget her name (think she works on AC) but I read what the team didn't have time to put into the Soul Reaver game, impressive scope. As it was Soul Reaver was great, slightly improved on the Dreamcast and it got me hooked onto the world of Nosgoth.
Godmars290  +   527d ago
I'd be happy about this if Square was in better shape creatively. Didn't come off as simply trying to cash in on IPs.
Pozzle  +   525d ago
To be fair, they'd only be the publishers. Not the devs.
Pozzle  +   525d ago
"War for Nosgoth" definitely sounds like a sequel to Defiance, rather than a reboot/remake.

If this is the case, then I'm VERY excited!!
