11 min gameplay-focused featurette just released by Konami. Narrated by Jason Isaacs. You don't need to watch anything else. Amazing.
Yeah I think Im gunna pick this one up. Very impressive.
day 1 for me,can't wait :(
Holy Crap, definitely looks like this could be a sleeper hit, quite frankly I wasn't expecting much from a new Castlevania game. I could be wrong but I noticed some GOW3 influence, but then again all games borrow aspects from previous games within the genre. No QTE's though, and I'm hoping for some extra depth to the gameplay beyond basic hack n slash through countless minions, with the occasional puzzles, fight boss, repeat....which is why I like the fact they are talking about the varied 40 different combo attacks, secondary weapons light and dark weapons, power ups, 20hrs gameplay, 50 diverse stages etc all with what looks like some cool platforming, interesting puzzles and hopefully a compelling story might make this game the surprise hit of the year. I'ma drink another beer ask the elf sitting on my shoulder if I'm right. JOY
"I could be wrong but I noticed some GOW3 influence," You are wrong in the sense that is not some but plenty. The whole combat system is a slightly modified gow one. Dunno about the pace, because the framerate is around 25fps yet it looks fast. I'm very curious. The platforming look very standard Gow affair too. The Titan fight is fully influenced by SotC. Epic. The story sounds very interesting. All things considered, I'm loving the whole package. Sold.
This looks like the only game available to give God of War a run for its money. Others have tried....but failed miserably *cough* *cough* Dantes Inferno
Same. After some looking into this game I decided to cancel my preorder of Enslaved for this, that and amazon gave me a $20 credit towards my next game purchase compared to Enslaveds $10 credit. lol! Still getting Enslaved but a little bit later. Cannot wait for Castlevania: LoS! Over 20 hours of gameplay and 50 levels to explore...hell yea, that totally justifies my $60 worth.
Looks like it captures the essence of a few of my favorite games (GOW + UC + a little MGS)and blends it all into a beautiful orchestra of blood. @JokesOnYou- I agree and I love God of War, but I loved Castlevania first ;)
very, very impressive. the production values are out of this world.
but this game is like a mixture of Devil May Cry + Dante's Inferno + Boyennetta (or w.e). Nothing close to God of War. NEXXXXXTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!
How long is the SP? I'm considering buying this but idk.
20+ hours, the game looks sik but not going to PC D:
"finding the correct sequel takes patience and care" (6:40) You mean working eyeballs with the ability to spot glowing objects? I'm getting pretty sick of that game mechanic.
Fucking phenomenal, Super CastleVania 4 opening theme. This is a true game worthy of the name, stunning, and this is a reason this is one of my top 5 franchises.
Day one ! No doubt About it........
Awesome but I'll buy it when it gets a bit cheaper....I just can't buy single player games value wise generally though 20 hours is pretty long and looks epic. This is definitely a gamefly game when releases die down a bit early next year
I agree, I've become very hesitant about buying single player games because I usually don't play them beyond 1 play through, so I've just become more selective and only pick up the very best SP games and this one looks like it might just fit that bill. Gamefly is a great idea for these type of games but I always go with my gut, I either like a game and buy it or I don't, lol needless to say I buy alot of games. JOY
I was on the fence about getting it, mainly because I haven't followed the Castlevania series but what I saw on that video was pretty cool and I'll definitely pick this up.
This looks breath takingly awesome!!!
WOW incredible naration. You can tell the legendary Kojima had an extensive role in this game. Everything the man touches turns to gold :) this is a day one buy for sure.
I agree. Kojima didn't want to just copy God of War, but take the genre to the next level. And it looks like he succeeded. The fighting looks intense, like the character is actually hurting the enemy. Can't wait for this game.
no, i dont think hes took it to another level, i dont think it surpasses gow3 in any way, i believe this game is better than dantes inferno but not better than gow3, somewhere in between maybe
Hope it uses move control, i want to use the whip
It wont, I asked. :-(
Looks like we have our 2010's Arkham Asylum. This game is going to rule!!!
I will buy it for sure, prob when it goes cheaper but I did notice quite a few God of War style things in the game, not a bad thing I LOVE GoW but I hope it's not a rehash of things we have seen. I am looking forward to this, I'm a sucker for Vampires, Werewolves, and demons.
Twilight ;) I kid hehe. This game looks so awesome I'm literally drooling :d 20+ hours? Yay!
The music is so amazing and unique. None of this generic orchestral bullshit! Graphics are stunning, too. This could become a classic.
I think this game has everything that most of us look for: engaging narrative, fantastic gameplay, amazing graphics, excellent voice work, and an outstanding musical score.
Thats right! It's got all the ingredients it needs to make a high n*gga pie hehehehehehhee ohhh shiiiittt sonnn! :L... I'm baked :P
Game length :D
Yeah, I forgot that one. :) Thanks.
Looks great and should rock on both PS3 and 360!! I hope we don't have a bunch of compare this and that between the two versions.
ya, some games are just in a class of their own. they don't need to be constantly put up as fanboy gunpowder to start some stupid arguments. This game looks amazing. maybe one of the best hack and slash games around. I have not been following this at all, but it's just shot to no 1 on my list now for xmas season games.
I have never played Castlevania before, although i hear good things about the series. However I will deffo be buying this because its the only game that has interested me for months and i didn't even know about it until a few weeks ago. Sleeper hit for sure, plus any game that has a slight input from Hideo Kojima is a day one purchase for me :P
GREAT DRACULA'S CAPE!!! THIS LOOKS AWESOME!!!
Wow, wow and more wow. Epic is a word often overused, but there is not a more apt description here. I knew this game was going to be good, but I think it is going to be even better than I thought. I think it is going to be one of the few games I really look back on and remember from this gen. It has that 'special' sort of quality to it.
wow this game is getting better and better, what a great work from Mercurysteam,im very hyped
he says''vampire killer''???
just wow!! day one for me
PS3 fanboys, 360 fanboys, multi console owner, ladies, gentlemen, boys, and girls. This is agame for GAMERS! Stunning visuals, great story, versatile combat, aswsome character design, 20+ hours of gameplay, historic franchise in association with Kogima Productions! I've never played it but I'm calling it now. Castlevania:LOTS will be s2Dc's 2010 GOTY. Yes it borrows from GOW like a sonovabitch but its 20+ HOURS!!! This is a throwback to what gaming USED TO BE. Hats off to Konami.
you mean hat off for Mercurysteam
I mean Konami. There was no such thing as mercury steam in the 80's. but there was still Castlevania. And while MercurySteam and Kojima Prod are indeed at the helms and n full force. Konami gave the green light and footed the bill. Hell if it makes u happy though, Hats off to everyone involved :)
its like if zelda, god of war, darksiders, dantes inferno and of course castlevania shagged had some sort of mutant baby. looks good.
Now after watching this video I think this game is something that should get some more exposure out there. It is Castlevania After all. Now I can't wait to buy.
