    Surprised no one has posted this yet, I did a search and found nothing.

    Theres question about their authenticity. Look pretty real to me and we all know theres a game due this year.

    Looks awesome! I just can't wait till the next Castlevania comes out for the DS.
    However.. The HP/MP bars look funny to me.

    PLEASE give us back the old art director. I hate the new animu crap.

    Looks real to me, but is that a date under the status bars? It also seems to have less anime style character art(which is a good thing for Castlevania)

    Yeah, it looks like a date. I wonder if time travel is an element now.

    The date is most likely the build date. On kotaku article someone mentioned it's Christmas Day but CD is not a holiday in Japan so it's quite plausible.

    I lol at the creator of fake pics for throwing his life time away.

    I lol at the creators of Castlevania that they found a gameconcept that I think is stupid as hell

    but soooo much people like, chapeau!

    Those screens look fake, but... a female protagonist... not a bad idea.

    Now, when is this out? [​IMG]

    Yeah, it does look pretty fake in my opinion. Still looking forward to a great new Castlevania game [​IMG]

    Any good reasons for these screens being fake? All of you know that a third Castlevania game on DS has been confirmed, right?

    Just to slam the nail in the coffin: no Konami copyright note on the menu screen [​IMG] (boot up Portrait of Ruin or Dawn of Sorrow, you'll see what I mean) And they don't use that weird shrinking text effect on the scrolly menus.

    Sorry Thug, much as we'd all love some news of the next Castlevania I'm not convinced this is it. [​IMG]

    Production demos usually don't have trademarks till debut or release.

    Yeah, but didn't he remove Bloodlines from the chronological timeline and then make Portrait of Ruin which references Bloodlines?

    hmmm... take a look at the picture with the dialogue. Judging from the farthest right picture, it seems that the black haired woman is supposed to be the protagonist. However, In almost all of the Castlevania games I've played (GBA + DS) only, the main character always is shown on the right in dialogue scenes. Also, when entering a room with a cutscene, it ALWAYS seems like you enter from the left, and the camera is focused on your character. However the woman is on the right and the camera is focused on the male character.

    Check the girl. That's not anime at all. Compare it with Portrait of Ruin and it's clear to see that it's seemingly a new art style. Hope it's the same art style as the GBA games [​IMG]. Those characters actually added to the story, in Portrait of Ruin the guy looks soft as hell and the rest of the characters also don't seem very interesting.
