    WayForward who are known for such gems as Shantae, Mighty Flip Force, A Boy & His Blob, Contra 4, Aliens: Infestation, BloodRayne: Betrayal and a ton of more stuff. Ok so they do do some "work for hire" stuff where it's clear the coffee lad is making the game (Ping Pals & Happy Feet 2) but on a whole they do make interesting titles.

    As we already know they have an Adventure Time game coming to DS & 3DS (both are pretty much the same title) which is looking really cool but also they have this title Hotel Transylvania for DS & 3DS (again both look the same) which while is based on a movie license, still looks a cut above the rest of the dirge that comes out.

    Of course it doesn't look amazing but it looks interesting and decent enough to dust off the DS for an afternoon. Obviously inspired by CastleVania but at the same time puts it own spin on it.

    The game was "shipped" today so should be in our flashcarts shops soon.

    I came in here singing "Hotel Transylvania" like the Eagles Hotel California.

    I started doing the same thing, only in Spanish...I don't even know Spanish so I'm probably offending someone if they could hear me, probably translates to "Lets gangbang some transsexuals" or something.

    Like most WayForward poorly licensed games it should be rather decent. Nothing bad but nothing great either.

    I'm guessing maybe Thor level here.

    Somehow those graphics just bug me.
    AC2 for DS was the only platformer I could enjoy on it.

    For what it's worth, the good WayForward titles tend to be the labor of love, sells great but not really amazing profit-wise kinda games. It's these games that get them funded, because they're pretty much paid by the time they finished doing these work for hire games.

    EDIT: Saw the vid, not as slick as some of WayForward's best titles, but man, it definitely has that Castlevania vibe going on. And wall-running! That should be fun.

    Also, what the actual fuck is up with that hotel? Dungeons and fiery depths and zombies and whatnot. LOL.
