Not quite as cool as the swag that came with PoR, but still pretty damn sweet. It's not shown with the game on gamestop.com yet, but hopefully will be soon.

For those whom are intrested in the figure...

They make about the same as everybody on games. Like 3 bucks.

I might preorder this. I'm not much of a CV fan but everyone swears by Symphony so.... yeah. That as an unlockable + preorder bonus = potential!

I'm getting this game but that figure looks like ass. This is a mucho better take on Simon Belmont: http://www.play-asia...nt-70-21o6.html

edit: Playasia has a Alucard figure too, I thought about buying it but the shipping put me off a little: http://www.play-asia...rd-70-21o7.html

if they really want to sell preorders it should be a alucard figure.

I don't think the point is for it to look good, bro. It emulates the way Belmont looked in the first games; it's a nostalgia piece.

BTW, I'd bet that this little preorder goodie will end up fetching some decent money on eBay before long. I was already going to buy this game, so this makes it even better. I don't mind GS so much as long as I can get in and out quickly, much like the way I do your mother super nerd. ;)

Armed because I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Thats a pretty nifty preoder as the figure was a '07 San Diego Comic Con exclusive.

Jeez people, the figure looks like "ass" becuase it represents the pixel 8-bit Simon from the 1st game. :roll:

Better buy this game. It's got "discontinued" written all over it. Konami sure loves yanking their best material off the shelf prematurely.

Yeah, sorry for having an opinion...8 bit or not I wouldn't want a figure that looked like that.

Still, that's how he used to look. Many of us got into Castlevania back then. We didn't play the game and go, "This character looks like ass!" ~ ~

I saw this figure as at wizard world Chicago and they were selling it for $40. I guess I will preorder this game just that so I can get the figure and it would seem I got the game for free compare to it at the convention.

you can have your opinion, but you're missing the point....

just a wild guess here, but you were too young to remember the 8 bit era?

Interesting. Reminds me of those Mario 8 bit bottle cap figures they gave out in Japan:

I still have my trusty NES. I guess I am missing the point because a 8-bit Simon Belmont figure with Dracula X Chronicles?! If you can explain why I should be excited for this figure then I jump on the wagon and say "this figure is kewl". Hey, since it's free I'll take it because I'm getting the game day one. The game looks great, the figure looks like crap, that's my opinion. Will I play CV 2 Simon's Quest? No thanks. 8-bit figure for nostalgia that looks like it's a rather tasty cake? I really don't give a shit.

Just something nerdy, kinda like how Nintendo threw in huge 8 bit SMB sprites into Super Paper Mario-- it's nostalgic. That's about the only explanation.

Japan is getting a LOT better preorder deal though and makes ours look like crap:

DXC Konami Style Special version (Japan)

Hardcover 32 page Art book (Just for this game apparently)
Specially-made pouch
Liquid crystal screen protection film
Specially-made strap
Shop poster
Original soundtrack
DXC psp game

Is it really surprising, though? Japan always gets cooler shit.

I didn't realize that this game was only $29.99 until now. I'll be preordering this (with figure) and Phoenix Wright 3 (with plush), which both come out the same day. Too bad Guitar Hero 3 comes out the next week...my wallet will be hurting.
