    I wish I had realized this was coming out. I just bought the overpriced DLC for LoS a little over a month ago.

    That cover art looks awesome.

    I just borrowed LoS from a friend when this was this announced. Put the game down until then wink

    Ugh, I wish this God of War style Castlevania would go away and Symphony of the Night style would come back.

    Oh man. This brings back memories of beating the Forgotten One on Paladin. Good times!

    This is probably worth picking up for those still to play LoS, especially as it contains the horribly overpriced DLC which is essentially just sections of the game that were clearly not good enough to make the final cut. Kojima even said that in hindsight they never should have even released the DLC for LoS.

    ^This.

    I was not impressed by LoS. Especially the trials-only-unlocked-after-beating-the-stage, the locked difficulty level, the collectibles, and the QTE heavy boss fights.

    I doubt they'll ever be able to top SotN. It is, quite frankly, one of the pinnacles of gaming. It's the high water mark for the franchise, IMO.

    Mercury Steam is located in Spain. This entire game just screams Spanish art styles. No more Spanish Castlevania!!! I want a real Konami Castlevania made by Japanese in Japan like they were in the good old days! Stop subbing out to other companies, Konami...

    No I am not saying this one was bad, but I'm just agreeing with the ones who think a real Konami developed release might be a good thing.

    Most of the Castlevania games on Nintendo handhelds have done the series justice (With the exclusion of the most recent one).

    Wouldn't know. The last handheld I've had was a Gameboy Advance SP (w/the retro NES look).

    Then you did have access to Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, and Aria of Sorrow. All of them games that did the "Metroidvania" genre justice. Add me to the list of people who would love to see that type of game being released for the xbox, xbla would even make a lot of sense.
    And why not going even more retro? Do something similar as capcom did with Megaman 9 and 10: make a retro-style 2D Castlevania like the NES and SNES games! No weird gimmicks; just you with your whip and sub-weapons.
    A game as perfect as Super Castlevania appearing for xbla, wouldn't that be awesome? smile

    It won't be a day one purchase for me, but it's something I definitely plan on getting. I love Castlevania, but have yet to play through either of the games included.
