I've never really cared for Castlevania, but this looks not so bad.

Edited by Eelcire

Not so first =p  Getting more interested in Castlevania with each trailer that comes out.
 
Wow! That music really brings back the nostalgia trip for me. Feels like Super Castlevania IV, which is one of my favorites in the series. Still like to play through it now and then.

Posted by mattyman77

Yeah, the music was good... But, I dunno about the rest.

Still downloading. Just wanted to say Castleviana IV suuucked. Is that what made it a low blow?

11 mins is crazy for a trailer!

NO YOU SUCKED. 
 
It's a low blow because it tickles my sense of nostalgia and makes me excited for this game whether or not I actually should be. :(

I'm still not sold on this game yet.

This looks incredible. It just oozes atmosphere. Can't wait for next week.
 
And as for the music....  the memories...

This looks like a very good God of War clone. Being a clone doesn't necessarily make something "bad". Just look at Halo and how it clones itself from every FPS in the history of FPS.

Castlevania IV is among the best examples of MIDI music ever, it still gives me douche chills.
 
This is looking quite good, and frankly if it just ends up a little mediocre I'll be fine with it.  I liked Darksiders alot and it wasn't exactly breaking any new ground either.

The reviews for this so far are actually quite positive. I've seen nothing throughout the entire cycle to make me doubt that this will be anything less than, at the very least, quite good. I could see this surprising people much in the way that B:AA did last year, given that I've seen little to no talk of it.

Reminds me a lot about Dantes Inferno design-wise. Looks damn sweet.
 
Hopefully this one won't get the same amount of bull from theists and GoW lovers alike. I mean, come on guys, it looks pretty promising!

Wasn't so sure about this game, but early reviews suggest that the game is well...phenomenal. Will wait to find out more, but lets just say my interest has piqued.

Posted by BryanDaGimp

man, didn't realize this was coming out next week, that's pretty exciting

I was skeptical at first, but this trailer has really got me excited.

Posted by steevl

Yeah, when I saw this last night I immediately got chills from the intro music. I'm really looking forward to this game.
 
It should also be noted that Jason Isaacs is the narrator here.

The 7 minute Japanese trailer sold me. Look it up on youtube if you haven't seen it. Looks amazing.

Posted by NickLott

This wasn't high up on my radar because I've been fooled times by 3d Castlevania but seeing all the positive early reviews roll in combined with Amazon's preorder game credit (and also it looking pretty good) made me put my order in. 

Posted by dieguy

Dude 11 minutes. This must be a Kojima game (I know its sorta not).

Posted by Aarduil

This looks surprisingly good.

Posted by kollay

Alright, that video was very informative. However, I feel the repetition of "Castlevania" was unnecessary. We already established that it is a Castlevania game, and already stated the subtitle "Lords of Shadow" plenty of times. By simply saying "Lords of Shadow" would have been enough, and if you were to talk about the actual characters, then that would be solved with the addition of 'the' e.g. THE Lords of Shadow.
 
My apologies, it was just tedious.

Edited by IrradiatedTurnip

This all looks really cool until the part where it's a game. I like a lot of the designs, but just...ugh. The combat. Every time it was just a cinematic or platforming I was much more sweet on it.

I am excited

Posted by AgentOHarah

hey guys, did you know he has a combat cross?!?!

Oh good, I'm not the only one that hated Castlevania IV. I thought Bloodlines on the Genesis was WAAAAAAY better, and I'm a SNES fan.
Posted by Hamz

Combat looks unimpressive. Otherwise I am a little excited to see just how it plays out. 
 
DRACULA IS STILL A THREAT!

Posted by BigBoss1911

Cant fucking wait to pick this up.

Posted by Nytrik

You have my attention, for now. 

Posted by metalsnakezero

Not bad just hope it comes out well.

Posted by Kinggi

Game just seems incredible.

Posted by PK_Koopa

Bland story, Great atmosphere, decent looking combat, typical puzzl-HOLY CRAP  I DIDN'T KNOW THIS WAS SHADOW OF THE COLLOSUS

Posted by Mechanized

Holy shit HYPE. Game looks like like Castlevania, meets God of War, meets Shadow of the Colossus. Can't wait to get it. Also, was that guy near the end Shaft? Or someone else. (the guy in the robe)

Obviously. You don't have to have played me to know this.
 
" It's a low blow because it tickles my sense of nostalgia and makes me excited for this game whether or not I actually should be. :( "
That was my second guess. If eleven minutes of footage isn't enough to let you know whether or not you should actually be excited for this game, then the answer is probably that you shouldn't be. For me it comes down to how Metroid it ends up being. Gaining abilities to use as keys to explore more of the environment is a necessary staple of my Castlevania enjoyment.

11 minutes of disappointment. 
 
That is not Castlevania.

Edited by MarkWahlberg

Even if it does end up being a God of War clone, that would be fine as far as I'm concerned; that way I get to to play that style of game without having to deal with Asshole McHacknSlash. 
 
Edit: "This game tackles mature themes" over a shot of blurred out boobies. Game developers are silly people.

Posted by Swick

I do enjoy a good God of War game...

Posted by Branthog

Taking the series into nude erections?

Posted by BigChief

Wait, what? Is this coming out soon? When did that happen? I'm not sure I've heard anything about this game since it was announced.

Edited by GunnBjorn

I just realized it's in plural! Lords of Shadow. I was so convinced Dracula was the one and only Lord, I simply overlooked the s. Still, that sentence doesn't seem right to me... Unless Shadow is the name of a place or something.
Posted by Tonic7

I liked how right when the narrator says that the game tackles mature themes of love, it shows the main character about to attack some demon woman with her boobs hanging out. Niiiiiice. 
 
Also, I don't know why but I am super excited for this game. It's been awhile since I've played a good Castlevania game.

Posted by CitizenJP

Awesomez.

Gabriel has a really small head in comparison to the rest of him.

I'm looking forward to this game.  The art and animations look great, the environments look pretty sweet, and that Super Castlevania IV intro theme seriously makes me nerdgasm every time I hear it.

In what seclusive sect have you been the last couple of months? Quite a few trailers were revealed on the E3 and TGS.

Love the graphics but did they seriously need to rip-off that many game mechanics? also whats up with the puzzle spoilers Konami?

Posted by Robopengy

I love settings like this. Reminds me of Van Helsing or Hellboy.

It worked for SOTN, which is the game that made Castlevania rise from the proverbial grave.
Posted by TobyD81

This isn't a trailer, it's a shareholders briefing. This by-the-numbers stuff doesn't have anything about the characters or story. I just hope this game isn't Lament of Innocence.
