Oh no....3D again. I was looking forward for some cool 2D HD graphics like in King of Fighters XIII. :-(

Its not 3D exclusive.

Its 2D gameplay but with 3D models.

They should have done that with Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles. :/

Look at that artwork! I've always loved castlevania art covers!

That looks great! It was a bit stiff on 3DS. Probably will still be stiff, but with HD graphics, Achievements, bigger screen and a proper controller. I'm in!

There are a lot of things I hope that they fix in this update.

Yup...but I prefer 2D completely. Mabye some 3D in backgrounds, but this is not Castlevania for me. I know it can be a good game, but I will skip it.

The cover art from Super Castlevania IV has got to be the most awesome painting ever to grace the packaging of a video game!

Wow, that's a very narrow view of the world. So, you'll skip something good, just because it's not *EXACTLY* what you want from a bygone era? BTW, not saying I wouldn't love a 2D Castlevania also, just that I don't understand why people are so "zero-sum" or binary, where it's all or nothing.

Plus, if the new Guilty Gear is any indication (looks "2D" but is really "3D"), you'll be waiting a long time for your "2D only" game.

I think what you are trying to say is that it's not worth spending the time to make 2D games again? Am I wrong?

Anyways, there is something about a "well done" 2D game (well animated really) that makes you appreciate games made that way more for some reason. I guess you can say it's akin to listening the same album on Vinyl, CD, and its DL version ... I could be wrong.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth imagine a board meeting at konami, downtown tokyo. "could you get a focus group together and find out where we should take our franchies from here?". Producer leaves for the nearest pachinko parlor. (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Activision isn't too much better, with the exception of Blizzard games. Ubisoft is maybe adapting better. (10 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think publishers can miss the plot a bit too. I think EA is stuck between chasing trends and being stuck in sorta old ways. They need to figure out this market. (11 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it would work on consoles too. Elite Dangerous with it's advanced controls were still able to work reasonably well on a gamepad. Giving the game a dynamic campaign built around story elements. (13 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think giving one publisher exclusive rights to the license was probably a mistake. Sorta putting all your eggs in one basket. (13 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth a flight sim background (Lawrence Holland). But i can't imagine disney/ea being interested in doing a game like that (16 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Another kind of SW game i'd love to play is a space-sim kind of game. sorta like a modern take on Tie-Fighter (or the X-Wing series in general). Those were games developed by a team that came from.. (18 minutes ago)
