PSInsider.com brings you the first look at Kojima's latest project.
Direct feed version added.
lets unite.... for today anyway you'll see what kojima brings to games ha ha screen-shot/ video comparisons though......:(
Epic trailer. And the British talent that they got on board; haven't seen that sort of touch since Heavenly Sword. What a great time to be a gamer! Shame for inevitable flood of screen-shot/ video comparisons though.
I'm happy to see this, looks great. But I'm still very sad that there is no word of Zone of Enders 3... my fav mech game. This game will be great nonetheless.
is god like. Awesome announcement!
I think i'm gonna cry like a little b****, Castlevania is easily my top 3 favorite franchises. Igarashi & Kojima 4TMFW That was beautiful, and Patrick Stewarts narration has officially brought the series over.
They didnt say anything about igarashi
Very impressive! And it's still in the middle or so of it's dev time. A very strong GOW meets SOTC vibe....It has an epic overtone,and full of indepth quality. On my "Hot list" it goes...
Why is everyone praising kojima for this game? Isn't he just the producer? Direction etc is being handled by other people, as far as I'm aware... Looks stunning btw, as an action game fan I'm really looking forward to hearing more about this game.
In pc section, plz change frosty
I was thoroughly impressed with the trailer. Kojima and the producer received a roaring applause when the word castlevania appeared on screen. kojima has really been knocking them out of the park this year! keep checking back with us for many more updates from e3!
"Wrongly submitted In pc section, plz change frosty " I just tried to, but it won't let me for some reason. Sorry about that folks, I was rushing to try to get this to you as soon as possible and forgot that it wasn't coming to PC. It's the Metal Gear game that's coming to PC as well as next gen consoles. We're about to leave e3 to go to the hotel. I'll try again when we get there.
I just added the direct feed version.
Damnnn that was an awesome trailer... some really great action adventure games coming next year starting with God of war 3 and then new castlevania... it can hardly be better... :D It looks jus breath taking.. thanks for the direct feed trailer :D
Here's a better quality. http://www.konami.jp/kojima...
already on the site... take a look.
Never got into Castlevania much, just used to watch my boy play. Might have to Pick THIS one up though
I like the shot where he's fighting on the back of the running beast... lots of epic action in this one.
Looks tight! As long as the whip controls better than LoI and its sequel, we'll be in great shape!
Always loved the series but hated the 3D ones on ps2, having said that I am gonna to get this as its castlevania lol kinda like FF for me. Wow i half expected the mask to open its eye at the end PS 2d castlevania fans if u guys dun have a ds u might consider getting one, last 3 castlevania on DS has been pretty solid
The last one on ps2 was ok though , and quite a good direction . But now this own on a potentially symphony of the night level
Castlevania: Curse of Darkness? I dunno i just didn't get the same vibe as the other castlevania but i did like that you get to have a bodyguard or pet of sorts. But ya the lord of shadows is taking #D castlevania to another level for that I am happy!
I understand what your saying, the reason no one understood Curse of Darkness, is because the antagonist changed and it was a sequel to Dracula's Curse. In Lament of Innocence, you traveled outside of the castle to the shop, whereas in Curse, you traversed a huge landscape w/o a Belmont. Igarashi omitted Legacy of Darkness, because he said it wasn't canon. I really hope that Koji Igarashi & Michiru Yamane are heavily on board too.
It gets me wondering though are they gonna be 2 nex gen castlevania games?? back in 2008 this Kojima one was just Lords of shadows and a Castlevania nex gen game was announced with a teaser .... See here http://www.youtube.com/watc... Now they have Castlevania: Lords of Shadows with all cool hollywood caste doing voiceover.. kojima looking over direction of the game.. maybe its to build anticipation and hype for the game.. with Kojima name attached to it ppl are definitely gonna look for this one.. else not many bothered to talk abut game when last year it was jus lords of shadows .. I am sure even now with this new trailer if there was no castlevania or kojima to go along with the name.. not many of us would have bothered chking it more than giving it a brief glance..
I dont get what the the hell you are saying here... People have been talking about "lesser games" like Darksiders and dante's Inferno (wich sorry to offend fans got a pretty meh design) for a while . And this look even better . Even without the name castlevania or the mention of Kojima the trailer looks good enough to make some decent splash in the action world
I agree with ya when ur saying ppl are looking for darksiders and dantes inferno... what I am saying here is having kojima and Castlevania name adds it to a different league maybe comparable to the likes of God of war... There is so much anticipation for games like MGS and god of war.. having these brand names like castlevania and kojima on this title will give lords of shadow a similar if not the same anticipation
what you said made sense but if your game is rubbish, it will not matter whose name you add onto the tittle
yeah... hopefully of what we have seen so far the game on it own rite looks spectacular and has already gotten my gaming juices flowing :D
Love the music.
rip-off devil may cry..
Devil May Cry couldn't light a fart to the Castlevania series, 4 games out and only 2 of them are good.
Hellghan, Devil may Cry was a ripoff of Lament of Innocence. Castlevanis has been around for longer than you have been alive Im thinking. Please don't insult the best, longest runninjg series of Video game ever. It shows your age and ignorance
The N64 versions are the games that gave birth to Devil May Cry. This game looks spectacular!
I very much doubt so ... they got inspired by the actually excellent 2d ones , and transcribed it with the usual resident/onimusha 3d camera of the time . Most of the gameplay even comes from a bug in Onimusha giving birth to the juggle/aerial style of DMC
I must admit, it looked really nice. Would be nice to play a 3D Castlevania after a while. You can bet, if Kojima is involved, we can expect a quality title.
Awesome trailer, the music is very Steve Jablonsky-ish.
the 360's library(of multiplats) is impressive. the xbox 360 ruler of the " ME TOO KINGDOM" of the consoles.
lol....only a jerk off would say that.
Is the japanese Chuck Norris
This might actually be really good.
I'm psyched! That was most impressive!
Wow, this game has me very excited. SoTN is my favorite game of all time and I have been waiting for a new Castlevania to come close to that experience for a long time. To have Kojima working on my favorite series gives me hope that it can actually happen. I'm saddened that this is not a 2d game, but I guess that would go against the current industry standard of pushing the envelope with 3d graphics. If they do this game right, I will be extremely satisfied.
Holy.... damn, I have been waiting for this day. Years ago when the 360 and PS3 got announced, this was the first thing I asked for. Now it's finally here. My god as great as the E3 was because of the great gaming announcements this has just made my day. I want this game more than anything. Well ZOE 3 would be nice, but, this is IT for me. Thanks Konami and Kojima productions. And Patrick Stewart? That was full of win as well, you guys are infinitely awesome.
And does it with polish, sheen, AAA game development talent, and graphic-whoring goodness............is A-OK FOR ME!!!!
maybe kojima is the key to end all the fanboyism. cheers to ps3 and 360 owners out there!!! metal gear and now this, cant get any better for gamers today.
KOnami 4thewin !!! YEAH Finally they invest in an AAA 3d Castlevania. YEAH :D
The game definitely has a god of war style to it. it'll be interesting to see what they do, if anything, to distinguish this from gow.
God Of war has some serious competition. Dante's Inferno MGS: Rising CastleVania Lords of shadows Kratos is definitly outnumbered. ...but when has that stopped him before? :D
Im 33 and I feel like a little kid again after watching that. Castlevania is the longest running, best series ever!!!! This title looks so incredible. I can't wait to start Whippin on Dracky for the 18th time. But I thought this game was going to be an Alucard game?? It's Belmont's turn or human's turn after COD, but I remember seeing an Alucard trailer somewhere. Either way it does look compelling and Im so psyched to play it
