Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that Castlevania Harmony of Despair will be coming to the PlayStation Network.
sounds interesting. may have to look into this
wasnt this announced a while ago?
Subtly, at last TGS. But they only mentioned a "2D castlevania for xbla and ps3" so it could've been something else. I thought they meant this thing, but no journalist actually asked Konami then.
Yes they clearly announced it in a facebook video at E3 that it was coming to PSN. They never announced it had a new 4 player Local coop and it comes with first map/character pack included in original game.
is this exclusive?
It was on 360 a while ago.
Does anyone care?
Yes, obviously. :P
Yeah the game is really ugly.
Hey Konami where's Suikoden VI?
Aww, only the very first dlc is included... I guess I'll wait for a sale.
It sucks that only the first dlc and two dlc characters are included, however, you may wish to reconsider. The online will be the busiest, and most fun, the first couple weeks or so it's up. Yeah, you can still play it whenever it goes on sale, but when it came out on 360, the first month was amazing, so I'd still recommend picking it up then.
You're right that was an amazing experience at launch for the first time, but the game bacame pretty broken after a month with those 2 cheaty swords that dominated everything in their path... Playing as Johnathon got pretty depressing after that...I don't know if these new characters balanced it out any, but I think I NEED THEM ALL along with more bosses and levels to make this interesting a second time around. Better yet, a sequal should be in production by now... Every halloween I demand 1 new castlevania dammit!
This is old news. As has been echoed, this really needs to include all the current DLC. It's the least they can do to make up for the game being out a year already on the 360. Would love new content too.
Is it me, or does Konami produce an all time low amount of games currently ? Kojima produces Castlevania, Silent hill is done by a non japanese studio, and so is Castlevania. What does Konami currently produce?
quite a few sports games.
This game is from Konami. http://www.amazon.com/Scene...
how about a new 2D HD Castlevania on par with SotN?
The vocal minority keeps screaming for innovation, thats why we will never get another SotN.
I definitely agree and with the way consoles are now in days I can see a huge Dracula castle with 100's of hrs worth of content.
argh don't play me, the thought of it alone excites me to madness. if only my friend, if only.
Do NOT buy this.
possibly the worst 2d castlevania. How about konami puts out a comprehensive castlevania HD collection?
The most recent decent Castlevanias were the DS Castlevanias, those were pretty good games, but how does this one compare to those?
SWEET! Local 4 player co-op!
Heard it was sub par, but I'm such a Castlevania fanboy that I'll buy it.
Greedy...fucking...assholes! I already bought this and begrudgingly paid out the nose for the dlc...I'd rather have had this on the ps3 from the start, for obvious reasons. If it wasn't for Metal Gear and Lords of Shadow, I would hate the shit out of Konami along with Capcom.
took you long enough
its been on 360 damn near a year ffs
It doesn't have instructions or at least I didn't find any. Took me a long time to understand how some things worked. =\ It's not bad if you have ppl to play with but as soon as they level up with alucard it gets boring, they just leave you behind haha.
