Konami held a press event for the Castlevania series today in its booth at the Tokyo Game show. The big news to come from the event, as reported by ITmedia, was first word on a new entry in the series for a brand new set of platforms: the PS3 and Xbox 360.

According to the site, series producer IGA unveiled first foootage for the new title in the form of a 10 second teaser clip depicting a man wielding a red lit sword. Following the clip, IGA hinted that he hadn't been expecting to actually announce the new game, suggesting that a release is still a ways off.

They're not smart enough to do this in 2D, are they?

I doubt it. :cry:

I'd love a 2D Castlevania on the 360 in HD. :drool: The DS games are great, but it would be even better on a TV with modern, HD 2D (or 2.5D) graphics.

how is that suppose to improve the gameplay?!

is tetris in high definition going to change the gameplay?!

it'll probably going be a ps2 castlevania except with more pretty graphics [720p/1080p].

Did anyone say it would improve the gameplay?

It would, however, be prettier and sound better, and nobody can argue those are bad things.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

I actually enjoyed the 3D Castlevania's, they just took quite awhile to get into (especially Curse of Darkness), as for the 64 ones... they never existed. I don't even know why I said 64, because there were no Castlevania games for that system.

I'm exited about this, though, if they take what they did with LoI and CoD, and maybe re-vamp it into more of a DMC style, this could in-fact be an excellent game.

Iga certainly wants to make that race interesting. Photo finish. Down to the wire. By a nose. All that sort of thing. Which game is a more colossal waste of time, folks? Step right up step right up place ya bets.

how is the n64 version bad?! please explain.
3d fighting castlevania game is pretty interesting. game sites and game magazines sites that it's like power stone except with castlevania characters. as we all know what and how power stones play like, it should be interesting.

Did I say it would improve the gameplay?

I want games that play great AND look great. Best of both worlds.

I have no time to waste on games that fail in either respect. I can never play anywhere near all the good games in the genres I like so I prioritize. I'm not one of those "graphics don't matter" nerds. They matter. They're useless without good gameplay, but I'll take a good game that also looks great over something like Mega Man 9 any day of the fucking week.

Man a 2D Castlevania on 360 would be badass. Either as DLC or a disc release (they're long enough anyway).

Think of the bloom!

But seriously, it would be awesome.

After the Wii game being a fighting game, if this isn't a 2D or 2.5D Metroidvania style game I think I'm going to have to bust some Konami executive heads.

I can't wait for IGA's obligatory "Don't worry guys, this is a good 3D Castlevania!" interview that he's done for every game so far.

Every single 3D Castlevania has been really shitty compared to the 2D games (and standalone, they've been ok at best)... I really hope they don't try for another one. If they really want to use polygons, make it 3D graphics with 2D gameplay- seems simple enough.

Problem is, the Saturn had good fighting games. Judgment looks like... a Wii quality fighting game.

Anyway, I hope it's 2D as well, because 2D is better... though Lament of Innocence was really damn good. Dunno what the hell Iga was doing with Curse of Darkness, but the first PS2 game was fantastic outside of the somewhat repetitive corridors.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

People thought LoI was good? I thought that game was mediocre at best. Castlevannia needs to stay 2D. Just make it a DL game with HD graphics, and im fucking sold.

Oh please. This is for 360 and PS3 owners, the likes of which would decry it as nothing more than a downloadable title because that's the extent of their understanding of 2D.

Just make it a DL game with HD graphics


See?

IGA really should just stick to the 2D style he's perfected over the years if only because there are so many action games now. It's a really crowded genre.

See?



this guy see's the point. the hardcore don't want to pay a $60 disc for a 2d game, they would rather have it for download. though that $60 buy would be better for konami as they earn the money as compared to the gamers.
