Please just let Kojima make these games. Enough God of Castle. Give me Castlevania please.

Castlevania with stealth elements because we all that /sarcasm. Given that Kojima couldn't get MG:R done without the help of another studio,Platinum Games, I doubt he could do a Castlevania game.

Don't get wrong Kojima is a great developer but it doesn't mean he should just start making/taking over certain games because a small minority of gamers want him to.

I think Smashbro29 means "Ayami Kojima" not "Hideo Kojima"

I miss the bad ass music and art style from Ayami Kojima. I liked Lords of Shadow a lot, but the music and ending battle against SATAN kinda killed it for me. The music was generic and expected with very very few tunes tied to the original Castlevania games.

Yeah me too. That gothic art style from Ayami Kojima are one of the best Castlevania trademark. Just comparing Alucard in SotN with Alucard in Mirror of Fate, Alucard in SotN is far better than the fake Alucard in Mirror of Fate.

3DS game was such a turd compared to the DS games. I didn't play it, but compared to the bright colorful artistic epic music of DS games to the extremely ugly 3D models with more brown and grey then Call Of Duty games.

I like BOTH the oldschool 2d games and the new lords of shadow franchise.

Very happy they are doing this sequel to let us play as dracula in the future. its going to be badass. can't wait.

that said, a new 2d castlevania game on the vita would be killer too.
