The big problem with OoE is that level design didn't really start until you got to Dracula's Castle.

Way too much of the game was "Walk this direction, occasionally jump over water, fight monsters."

Had me at "2D Castlevania," lost me at "Mercury Steam". I hate this trend of Japanese companies whoring themselves out to western studios so much.

I thought LOD was boring, so I'm out.

Would love either a classic or a metroid 'vania game though.

I thought Ayami Kojima wasn't working for Konami anymore and became a freelancer?

I want IGA back on 2D Castlevania, I enjoyed all of his games even if they never did live up to SoTN. Mercury Steam can continue the 3D action titles. I do not doubt they can pull of a genuinely well made 2D Castlevania for 3DS but let IGA have some work...please?

You wouldn't be the only one. If I can't get back Hiroyuki Fukui and Toru Hagihara, the ones who were REALLY responsible for SOTN being the classic it was? Then I at least will rest assured knowing IGA's not doing anything more to drag their classic down.

That's extra-confusing when talking about a 3DS title. Do you mean Metroidvania-style, sprite-based or 'not 3D'?

I was extremely ecstatic until I read it was by the LoS guy and developed by Mercury Steam. Mood swinging in full force today. :(

Well either way, I hope it's good (2D gives me plenty of hope), and I still hope we'll get an Iga-made Igavania in the future.

Since all 3DS games have S3D, it's extremely likely he meant 2D gameplay.

Hopefully this isn't the Lords of Shadow sequel, I want that on my TV please. The game could be set in between the "end" and the "epilogue" of LoS.

Normally I'd love a 2d nes era game but seeing as we've heard nothing on 2d Metroid coming back I'll take a SoTN style game instead.

Maybe this is to tide us over because LoS2 is a next gen game?

I am guessing this confirms Igavanias death on portables.

I liked Lords of Shadow, will get this if it's a good game.

The best thing about LoS were the animated notebook sketches. I can't imagine that they're going to do a whole game of that.

Read the 3DS and thought "Yes! Castlevania returns to its 2D roots!"

Read the Lords of Shadow connections and lost interest. What a waste.

Otherwise I'll back out. 2D side scrollers just feel way too tired to me now.

Hey we agree for once!

I used to appreciate the igavania's but come on people there's been 1 great one (SotN) and a ton of followers copying that same exact formula. It's been beaten to death already.

Is it confirmed 2D or 3D? If it really is a 2D title by Mercury Stream, perhaps we'll see some actual innovation, for better or worse.

IMO Dawn of Sorrow is argueably better than SoTN and OoE shows that the formula could evolved and actually it's a pretty different experience while maintaining most of the best stuff from past titles.

For example OoE has some nice plataforming setpieces. Something that most Metroidvanias lacked.
