Xbox Evolved: "With help from Kojima Productions, MercurySteam is set to delivery a powerful reboot of the Castlevania franchise. Take a look at some gameplay from E3 2010."
Game looks ok.
Can't believe that's actually a Castlevania game.
Certainly different than what we're used to.
I'm still on the fence....this could be good, but I will definitely need a demo.
agreed. Game looks interesting, but i will need to see reviews or have a demo before i sink money into this game later this year as there are numerous games coming that I am already committed to.
It looks good, but let's hope it's good. What I've always said was that they should make a traditional 2-D Castlevania (i.e. Symphony of The Night style) BUT with BlazBlue graphics. That would be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G
Blazblue-like sprites? I defiantly be sold on that. I love blazblue, and that way it'd feel like a true castlevania game. Although I'm quiet happy with 3D version of the game. +1 "interesting" Bubble
Not me , while staying traditional with better graphics would be cool , it would be a mistake for the serie to close up itself to new concept and innovations . Wich it never did TILL konami decided that the only viable castlvenia would be handheld rehash clones of Symphony of the night , and some (however great looking and possibly quite good) western gow clone . Igarashi and his team did a great job transitioning the serie into 3d (at least with the quite good curse of Darkness , a good successor to SoTN). Why did no one cares ? Because it was underfunded and thus not a pretty and polished enough serie of games , nor did it even received marketing and promotion . Konami missed the occasion to compete with so many successful action/adventure , action/platform franchise ... occasion taken by capcom and its dmc (and onimusha) series , ubisoft with the prince trilogy , tecmo and ninja gaiden , obviously sony and gow ...
Too me the game looks good.
The one i saw on the 360 looked like a throwback but i dont mind this one...I mean, look what 3d has done for mario and link. I saw xbox evolved and thought they were showing the 360 version...Now i know its the ps3 version i can see it looks MUCH BETTER now ;)
The xbox-evolved people put "Xbox 360" tags all over the vid, yet its obviously the PS3 version thats being shown. Not that the 360 version is inferior or something, just think its funny.
looks like the old Van Helsing game.. hope it comes out better..
Didn't really see much there. Need more gameplay. A direct feed would be cool to see sometime in the near future...
very nice indeed.
and nice HDTV, I want one
how is this a reboot?
