Konami's upcoming Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles is something you can't miss - a 3D remake of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, and the original Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night. Release at the end of this year.
and it's got me as excited as GoW PSP.
I'm very exited for the upcoming PSP games. Maybe the PSP can take the top stop even if it's nearly close to impossible.
Finally IGN fixed the videos...
Symphony of the night on the go. Very nice
This only a 3D remake of Dracula X for the PC Engine SuperCD back in 1994. Akumajō Dracula X Chi no Rondo...it was only released in Japan for the PC Engine and not for the TG 16. Back in 1994 this was the first non-linear game on a console. You always had two pathways to choose from and you could also play as Maria.
Symphony of the night is in the game as an unlockable. The original rondo of blood is also in the chronicles. http://www.konami.com/Konam... I do however look forward to playing all 3 games. I can't comment on rondo cause I never played it though I heard it was really good. Hence why I only mentioned Symphony
I look forwards to this game, but the video seems like the one playing it hasn't touched a Castlevania game in his life! This series rocks Believe It, an you'd be missing out if you don't play this game!
Since I owned Dracula X on my PC Engine Duo I have to say the graphics look nice but the footstep sound is annoying. I sold my Duo back in the day (00') for $475 and sold Dracula X for $750. I think it was IGN that said it's collision detection on the 3D models isn't very spot on like the old 2D verison. The PC Engine ver is still the best of all the Castlevania series since it pretty much influenced the rest of the series...right down to character monster designs.
I'd personally rather they get rid of the whole walking up stairs like all the original Castlevania games, and instead of 2d linear plain 3d models that they used HiRES Massive animated sprites instead...the 3d model 2d linear plain thing just sux on MegamanX 7 and 8 and it sux on the psp megaman titles...Just go with Hires 2d sprites like in heroine anthem and odin sphere...ect
between the PS3 and PSP, there are so many games coming out this fall that i won't be able to get even *HALF of what's on my list for this year. i can't even begin to think about purchasing another system (like a 360 or Wii). i think the PS2 is getting some good stuff too (like Odin Sphere this week). even with my job, it's going to be a harsh fall, that's for sure. hmmm, maybe i can get away with giving my friends and family socks for the holidays...
