    I was never a Castlevania fan...till now. And since its being co-developed by Kojima, its bound to be good.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Looks absolutely fantastic, but it's only for PS3 and 360. Guess I'll have to wait until I get one of them to play it :\.

    EDIT: Also, Patrick Stewart as a voice actor in it FTW [​IMG].

    i dunno - it's a bit too god of war on first impressions (don't get me wrong is great in it's own right) but will this feel like a Castlevania game?

    i hope they're able to keep some of the classic Castlevania elements to it i.e. caturing souls for special powers or certain enermies dropping certain weapons

    It needs to feel like Castlevania for me to care, that and not be full of cutscenes.

    I don't understand comment about needing to feel like Castlevania. I'm taking it people mean they want a metroidvania game, and not the original Castlevania game.

    As long as the 3D in this game isn't like previous 3D games it might be interesting.

    Saw this on Konami's site. I also don't see the Castlevania theme in this game, but it still looks good nonetheless.

    That big orc looks very generic fantasy-ish. Here's hoping the atmosphere stays true to Castlevania.
