It seems strange to me that they would take the 3D models approach since 2D on the 3DS actually looks pretty good in 3D. The DS kept 2D Castlevania alive! Not sure how it sold ..

My point being that Wayforward makes shitty games, too.

True, 2D in 3D is one of the more enjoyable 3D I've seen. I was hoping for a 2D Castlevania on the 3DS after playing Mighty Switch Force. :I

I would've preferred 2D to 3D with this game as the artwork in LoS is absolutely killer and would translate well to pixels. Also a little sad IGA doesn't get to continue working on the handhelds, but I'd like to see what this game looks like.

Might Switch Force is amazing in 3D. Heck, even Mutant Mudds turned out pretty nice in 3D.

I prefer non-europeans who have a better idea about medieval european art over native Europeans who have to rip-off movies like The Lord of the Rings or The Name of the Rose to get inferior results.

You play as Gabriel trying to cure himself from the vampire curse. But the curse comes with a few benefits such as transforming into a bat or a wolf.

So the mirror is like magic and he wants to find it to change his fate and stuff.

And at the end you fight Necron from FF9..

Ah, so Konami's on damage control? I'm not surprised they're trying to bring out more Castlevania games, they're one of the last franchises they own that haven't been tainted and twisted yet, although it depends on who you talk to about LoS.

Nawp. But I don't think Mercury Steam has made a 2D game yet, so I'll wait for them to try before condemning them. If this is going to be 3D gameplay, I won't care.

Wayforward wouldn't mean much to me except that it could have pretty sprites. Maybe it would be good, maybe it wouldn't. Exactly my stance now.

So clearly it'd already be a marked improvement over whatever this is even if no details had leaked.

Deny it by starting a fuel against Konami for them being told to take it down? The cats out of the bag the moment the article went down.

Whatever. Hope the leak about it having a belmont is true, and I hope it's 2d gameplay. Won't care otherwise.

I have no idea. I don't know what this development company will do with a 2D style Castlevania. I'll wait and see.

I do know that Wayforward has some gems and they have made shit.

Very likely? It was hinted at the week Lords came out. How was a 3DS Castlevania game in the works since then if Mercury didn't get a prototype done until last year?

Always meant to get the DS games! Never got round to it though.

In terms of it needing to be 2D, the game could still be 3D but with the 2D platforming perspective (especially with 3D, slight angle and you'll see the floor and if the character is close or not) - like pullbox. A Prince of Persia type changing camera style could work from the gameplay I saw of the originals.

But I think the '2D only' reaction is silly, they'll no doubt be/has been a lot of tinkering with it already to work out the best way.

I'd love to see changes to a well known formula, as long as the changes actually tries to take the franchise somewhere new and not just blatantly copy another existing concept.

Oh well, at least it's 2D and that counts for something.

*no, having a weak version of Vampire Killer in a music box does not make it a Castlevania game.

Think of it like Epic Mickey, 3DS gets a separate game to the home console sequel. LOS2 should be announced at E3 alongside this 3DS outing.

There is a good chance that Mercury Steam are just producing this title with another studio handling the actual development, one who has portable experience. I reckon we'll see Griptonite Games announced as the developer.
