Castlevania's Latest Belmont Gets “Every Man” Mainstream Makeover

"In a recent interview, Konami’s head of product planning, Dave Cox, revealed that Konami Japan was tasked with the responsibility of making Castlevania: Lords of Shadows “more mainstream.” Cox then went on to explain the advice he received from Metal Gear Solid creator, Hideo Kojima."

The story is too old to be commented.

belmonts need to be a stereotypically heroic archetype, you're fighting effing dracula and hell beasts, not rival treasure hunters and phantoms.

I was hoping Kojima would have given more Kojima-like advice instead of mainstream-like advice. >_<


Female Belmont? Like Veronica Belmont from Qore? :P

That's why I don't do cosplay. I will come off as a semi-retarded dude and will see my pic on an N4G article then I will get depressed, bake some hotpockets while downloading some HD porn to lighten the mood and prevent a suicide.

Provided you're under 300 lbs, you can still point an laugh at 50% of the cosplay freakos. I mean seriously; these people have to know this stuff will come back to haunt them. INTERNET, HELLO!

How about a femail Belmont? Don't think it was ever done before. Would love to see one in the future titles.

There was a female Belmont already. Her name was Sonia Belmont and she was in the 1998 Game Boy game Castlevania Legends. But unfortunately, Koji "Iga" Igarashi (Producer of the Castlevania games who didn't work on Castlevania Legends) took that game out of the series canon.

Its too bad tho, in it Sonia was the first Belmont to fight against Dracula...and in the end of the game *SPOILERS*

She gets pregnant with Alucard's child, who is Trevor Belmont. So that means every Belmont there after is a descendant of Alucard....Freaky.
