Solid Snake playable in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

#1 Posted by Forcen (2139 posts) -

With the release of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow this week, a secret character will be playable after meeting certain conditions within the game.

Following the end of the game, fans of Solid Snake will be happy to know he will be playable. Simply go to the Extras menu and you will be able to play as Solid Snake instead of Gabriel Belmont. You can choose whether Snake can wear a bandana or not.

 The question now is, will David Hayter voice him?

I wonder if it's just a skin, or a whole other character.

In past Castlevania games you could usually play as another character after the main game is completed. Unlike the main character the unlockable ones would usually have a predetermined move list and there would be no upgrading or any other kind of progression. 
Then again with how the video game industry seems to work nowadays, it's probably just a skin. We could all be pleasantly surprised though.

I don't know why but I am a sucker for things like this.

You don't play as Snake, its Gabriel Belmont in a Solid Snake outfit. Also their is a option to wear the bandanna or not.

I'd rather be able to unlock an old-school version of Simon Belmont.  I just can't see Snake using a chain whip, it's not the stealthiest of weapons.

so i just beat it, and i saw the option to turn on the bandanna and the solid eye, but the skin is still definitely Gabriel...but with an eye patch. am i missing something here?

Its just the Eyepatch and Bandanna. Which sounds kinda lame at first but It strangely makes Gabriel's armor look more complete.

That's pretty awesome. Why do people bitch about these things? It's clearly just for the sake of being silly and referential.
