Check out over 20 minutes of footage from Castlevania: The Lords of Shadow, which is slated for release on the PS3 and Xbox 360 later this year.
I am truly sorry to those who didn't get to actually play it and see it in person, great game if anyone is wondering.
looks like the dmc sequal ive been waiting for. looks like kojima is doing good.
I really want this game to be good, but many podcasts that I've listened to said that they were very unimpressed by this at E3. An actual quote is" It plays like a poor man's Dantes Inferno." Thats a diss if Ive ever heard one. But, I'll reserve judgment until I play it for myself.
So if Dante's Inferno is called poor man's God of War then Castlevania being called poor man's Dante's Inferno is actually beggar's God of War? Didn't play Dante's Inferno past the demo(too much ripped off GoW, boring Death fight) but I think Castlevania looks a lot more fun than that.
WHY? NOT a PS3 exclusive.
The platforming looks a bit mundane, but the combat shows a lot of promise. I hope that it's fantastic. This series needs a good 3D installment. @EBC However, the Ps3 WILL be its lead platform. Why don't you move along now, sourpuss?
Shit looks tight.
Based on the quality of past titles, I think it's safe to say Lord of Shadows will be the best 3D Castlevania game we've seen so far.
agreed castlevania 64 was a disaster
i have never played this series before, but this game is looking sick, will get it.
I had my doubts a first but this looks very good.
imma getting this day 1
you cannot stop me from getting this LMAO STUPID
Game looks good
it does look really great. i just hope kojima doesnt make this more movie then game. i used to hate being pumped in "MGS" only to have my adrenaline reduced to nothing do to rediculously long cut-scenes. this castlevania already looks to have quite more dialougue then the previous games. ill take gameplay over cut-scenes any day, if not, then it better include the popcorn if i pre-order.
Hideo Kojima isn't working on this. Lords of Shadow is being developed by Mercurysteam, which by the way have never in their entire history of games development made a good game. A team at Kojima Productions is helping them out but Kojima himself isn't. As far as we know, he only helped in developing the protagonist. He's focused on what he's going to reveal at TGS. :)
According to my Game Informer, he's Executive Producer. I'm out of the country right now, but I'll have a page for you Monday or Tuesday.
I cant wait to play on the PS3, the lead platform for Lord of Shadows.
sorry guys but this looks like another God of War rip-off... the similarities are uncanny.
Really? wow, talk about straight GOW rip off. Im good on this shit.
Lament of Innocense came out 2 years before God of War, and they're both great games.
This game looks epic, i cant wait for it.
i think this will be god of war killer,gameplay,graphics are all better
The is good. but not good enough too live to gow killer. I am getting this game.
one thing i love about this game is the large varieties of bosses! :) we are gonna have pure fun with them! also game has destructible environment just like Bayonetta
where's the sword fighting??
Seriously you know what GOW did, it practically re-invented action adventure games. This looks more like a Prince of Persia, back in the days when they were good, I'm talking about the Sands of Time trilogy, fuck all the other ones that came out.
Seriously, Ive been playing Castlevania since the NES days and I dont even see how they can get away with putting the Castlevania name tag on this title? This game game looks more like Dante's Inferno, its not even ripping off GOW, thats giving this game too much credit. Jesus Christ, I miss the old Castlevanias'. Why not just give us a real a remake instead of this? I would freak out if they redid Simon's quest.
