    The current DS Castlevanias are some of the best games the DS has, I can't wait for this one.

    Look familiar for the Castlevania fans, but still look like it's adding enough things to keep things fresh. Can't wait!! [​IMG]

    Thanks JPH. It really looks to be great. The overworld sounds interesting. Seems like a map where you choose where to go.

    Can't wait for my Castleroid fix [​IMG]

    Now if only Nintendo would pull their fucking finger out and make a 2D Metroid game for DS, I'd be so bloody happy.

    It is nice to hear that it won't be yet another game trying to be "Symphony of the Night", even though I have loved every DS & GBA game that followed it's just good to hear that it'll have its own style. The trailer from a month or so back got me more excited for this, before it was just another sequel.

    Ok I'm going nuts for Mega Man 9 but then it's been years since we had a proper MM game.

    Oh yeah anyone heard about the film and how Simon has a sword and no whip? Paul WS Anderson really needs to stop making films, and his version of Death Race looks monumentally shit.

    I think that little diddy there is going to mean a lot. The Castlevania formula is a hard one to break or even really improve that much. I think foes acting more differently will be a very nice subtle touch.

    There's going to be a Castlevania movie? Would have had solid potential, but will probably go the way of Van Hellsing if what you say is true (Belmont with no whip? Blasphemy!)

    Oh and yeah, Death Race looks quite possibly like the worst movie ever made.

    Really looking forward to this new Castlevania game though.

    And I also agree with an earlier post that Ninty should make a 2D Metroid for DS. That would be great.

    I honestly wish they would keep making these. I love this type of game and it's awesome to see new levels with a new story. Now if they would only make another 2D Metroid game...
