E3: Kojima Twitter mystery solved

A Twitter feed seemingly being updated by Kojima Productions is broadcasting coded messages which, we're guessing, may be relevant to the contents of the Konami press conference today at 3pm PST / 11pm BST.

...Lords of Shadow(s) [Castlvania]. If they do show it, I hope it's not a teaser, but some gameplay. If Kojima is involved, then it should be exciting.

im not really a fan of the 3d ones and LOS didnt really catch my attention from the screens and teaser but if it IS castlevania i might give it a look.

i also remember seeing an article about the next castlevania having alucard so anything castlevania related right now sparks my interest

And if it's Kojima then sign me for a day 1 purchase. One of my favorite games on the Playstaion was SotN. The subsequent Castlevania games were good but SotN still holds a place in my heart. Especially the music in the game. What a soundtrack!!


Hey folks.

Incidentally, I was one of the people KojiPro started following. Only thing I could think of that triggered it was mentioning that "Mask" teaser site yesterday.

I noticed this though: To solve all the strings, you needed to go back a certain number of letters in the alphabet. For the first one you had to go back 3 letters, and so on. Anyway, I looked at all the numbers I had to go back, and realized something. 1st String: 3 letters, 2nd String: 1 letter, 3rd String: 19 letters, 4th String: 20 letters, 5th String: 12 letters, 6th String: 5 letters, 7th String: 22 letters, 8th String: 1 letter, 9th String: 14 letters, 10th String: 9 letters, 11th String: 1 letter. Now, look at those numbers again: 3, 1, 19, 20, 12, 5, 22, 1 , 14, 9, and 1.

If you compare those to their corresponding letter in the alphabet (A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.), you get: 3=C, 1=A, 19=S, 20=T, 12=L, 5=E, 22=V, 1=A, 14=N, 9=1, and 1=A. In other words, Castlevania! WTF?

Well done, Brachattack. I followed 'em and got a follow back too, but I wasn't able to work it out at all. Not that I REALLY put much effort into trying, however. ;D

If this is correct, then it's sexy news indeed. Hopefully it's a PS3 title, and a proper one at that.

Im gonna try and get some exclusive images once the announcement is out of the way.

iNcRiMiNaTi3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

sotn is by far the best in the series hands down. i bought 3 different versions and downloaded a saturn emulator so i could see the extra stuff they added

ps1,psp, sega saturn, and XBLA

i still remember the time i beat richter and i thought i was done...until i found out there was more after exploring a bit. a whole other castle i didnt know about. great game

and good catch brachattack. definitely hope this one turns out good.

edit: @1.7 yup, got em all in 2 days lol

maxcer3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

if it is a new castlevania i hope its for live/PSN and in 2D. unless they can actually make a decent 3D version then i'm all for it

edit:@1.6 lol, did you ever get the 200.6% cheeve?

morganfell3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

There was a rumor yesterday and even a post on N4G about an unannounced PS3 game coming today.

hay3427d ago

@BRACHATTACK: You've earned yourself a bubble, got to the same conclusion and the result clearly can't be a coincidence.

solidjun53427d ago

I also got that dreaded 200.6! Sucka took me a week of constant playing. Plus I started over becuase the first time, I didn't realized that there was another castle. Regardless, those were a helluva a good 2 weeks. ^_^

Kojima DOES have a part to play in LOS, i was told a week or so ago he didn`t so my bad, and now im told he DOES! lol.

He`s not as hands on as some people might think or like.

BLuKhaos3427d ago

I wouldn't be surprised if Kojima mixed different languages in there, I know I would.

Foxgod3427d ago

Nice, then we finally get an awesome 3d castlevania :)
