You missing out. Looks great. Has some real star power for voice over too.

caseh3268d ago

Yea I agree, hopefully they won't do a Bethesda special and kill of the star voice acted characters within the first 30 minutes of the game. :D

JsonHenry3268d ago

All I ever wanted was another side scroller Castlevania.. until I saw the trailer for this. And now I really want this game.

looks good but anyone think mgs 5 isa possibility at TGS?? exclusive to the ps3?? i'm kinda confused after all of this and him giving the big speech about making the "ultimate stealth game" and now they are pushing out a bunch of different games and none of them seem to be that

mistajeff3268d ago

My guess on the MGS matter is that Konami wanted either MGS4 ported to the 360, or MGS5 to come out for both. Kojima probably struck a deal saying his studio would make a multiplat console game and a PSP game, and both would "equal" MGS5. I feel he did this because he wants the Snake story to remain with Sony, and he knew the only way Konami would do a Sony exclusive from this point forward would be for him to put it on the PSP, where the only thing it could possibly be ported to is the PS2.

This is a complete guess with no factual evidence to support this, other than the fact that Kojima's only personal involvement with Rising is to keep it canon and his statements saying that Peace Walker is the next true entry in the MGS series.

ya but i heard that mgs:rising will be way more of an action game than a stealth game and also that kojima himself won't really have anything to do with it so i doubt that those two combined will be mgs 5 especially because they are set in different times and also that the 360 fans won't have the other half peace walker

Brilliant guy, but he should stick to that translator.

crappy quality. see the Gametrailers version here.

100% better.

RealityCheck3268d ago

Gameplay looks like a mix of Heavenly Sword and God of War. Looks promising.

nirwanda3268d ago

It does look good but doesn't look like a castlevania game

DJ3268d ago

Pretty much the whole staff was shocked when we saw the words "Castlevania" appear at the end of the trailer at Konami's Conference.

caseh3268d ago

Belmont looks like a Big Boss clone, assuming its a Belmont... :P . Go Kojima! :)

I think i'm the only person in the world who enjoyed castlevania 64 so quite looking forward to this. Hopefully though if Kojima has a hand it won't be overly heavy on Story and cut-scenes. Castlevania is pretty much a straight forward affair, slayers > vampires. :D
