God of War 3 anyone? :) Looks like it's going to be the best 3d Castlevania though (not that hard lol)

I dont remember if this game will have a fixed camera.but if it does it will be a huge letdown for me.

Am I right in thinking this is more God of War clone than Castlevania?

I hope not and by that I mean the freaking fixed camera,I hate that type of camera in games,I want to look whatever I want not what the game or the developer want me to look.

i'm going to say yes. which as much as i like GOW, isnt what i want from a catlevania game. i want that really strong adventure element, that "open" world where you get items that alow you access to other areas you may have been through. if it's just a hack and slash with the odd giant boss. it isnt going to feel particularly "castlevania-ish" in which case, i couldnt care less about it.

Looks a tad...messy.

Can't freaking wait!
I just hope the gameplay keeps up with everything else they have showned so far.

I love everything they have showned so far :)

Hah, I also thought of GoW3 the moment I saw those :D
And after I saw the character I thought of Castlevania. Looks like the japanese got stuck serving projects that are made of parts of other games.

I don't know what you young ones are thinking, I thought of Legacy of Kain Soul Reaver not some god of fucking war...

God of War this, God of War that... bla bla bla.

It seems like anything's a God of War clone nowadays.

But too blinded to see God of War is a clone of other games.

Atleast Gabriel is well designed unlike the hidious Kratos LOL

Was thinking of God of War too....because of the color palette they use and it really reminds me of the Titan GAia :(

Second look was..."'s a bit like Shadow of the C. too " hm...

Hope the get this Lovecraft feeling that the first Castlevania games on NES had in.

Guess there is no open world and free roaming,it looks a lot linear to me,with a solid (i hope so) story to tell.

Yeah,and compare it to gow,it's the most recent game that came out these days,so yeah.
Otherwise i could say it reminds me of Rygar..and any other decent 3D hack n slash game.

It's a Genre,and GENRE's actually existed before GOW !
Now it's true..people just talk about clones.But one thing is true,GOW refined the meaning of a good Hack'n slash in 3D..especially the first one !

perfect reply from a intreview:

Mercury Steam hasn’t made many games. Has this been a learning process for them?

Yeah, sure, absolutely. I think with Mercury Steam, after what happened with Jericho, they needed a challenge that would make people sit up and pay attention to them. They needed to prove to the world that they weren’t just the developer of Jericho. So in many ways it’s good for Konami because they’re willing and able to push themselves in order to prove a lot of naysayers wrong. Jericho was a horrible experience for them and unfortunately the developer often gets tarred with the brush when these things are often an amalgamation of a lot of things. It can often be the publisher, themselves or the way the relationship was managed. And it was a licensed product too, you have to remember. So I think for them it was just a horrible experience. But we do believe in Mercury Steam and we intend to do more work with them in the future. And hopefully when people see the finished product they’ll be suitably impressed and start to think of Mercury Steam as the studio that developed Castlevania and not the studio that developed Jericho. To be fair, you know, there are about 70 people working on this game, which isn’t a lot when you compare it to games like God Of War or Uncharted, which take five years to make with 150 people and are usually single format. We’re a pretty small team, working with perhaps not the biggest budget in the world. But we love Castlevania, and love can get you quite a lot…

I think it looks diffrent to GOW3, here you have a much more darker athmosphere.
On the other hand this giant battles are a little worn out these days... but thats not only from GOW3.

Looks promising to me but i got to see more of the actuall gameplay.
The athmosphere and the look is pretty good i think, moody and dark.

Let us all hope the best and mabey we can finally get a good castlevania since...

I would like to see more adventure and platforming. GOW3 is more of an action game with uber gfx. I am really looking forward to this and pics look great
