Do you guys really think the game will be 3D? With Nintendo 3DS horsepower? Unless they want a game to look worse than it would on a console, they'll go the 2D route (or 2.5D route).
It's going to be 2.5D. 3D graphics in a side scroller, like DXC.
Well, to start he's a proven liar.
I can't deny this. David promised a lot for LoS that barely any of it was true.

@Inccubus: Your hopes are going to be smashed within a month.

LOL. Yeah, nowadays when I say 'hope' in reference to anything Castlevania (or Megaman for that matter) I mean it as in the complete antithesis of anything remotely resembling actual hope. Kinda like how you say something is bad when you mean it's good.

Lords was well received and was a much more believable origins story than Lament ever was...

A 3D system has nothing to do with the style of the game being a sidescroller or not. Neither having pixel art or not.

Seriously, I don't get where do you guys get that...

Do realize Nintendo, along with all console manufacturers, imposes certain standards and restrictions on developers for retail 'box' games. Wii/3DSware is pretty much "anything goes" because they're begging for interest in that sector.

That and; A) Konami execs are tards; B) "Forget what you know about Castlevania"; C) LoS was highly profitable, and in 3D

If the rumors are true, that'd be super awesome.

The information from the source that OSM was talking about (rumor):
Just want to remind everyone to still take everything with a grain of salt. I'm very inclined to believe everything the guy told me now though, but you never know.

Hoping the game runs at a smooth framerate and doesn't share any of the issues MGS3D had. Konami needs a good 3DS game in their library.

And D) the team that is presumably developing the game has experience with 3D games, not 2D which is an entirely different animal.

False. They don't restricts games from being 2D or 3D. There's a lot of 2D games on 3DS already, retail even.

The other reasons you listed have nothing to do with the game being or not 3D or 2D. And, considering there's a console game coming (and in 3D), I don't see how this cannot be made in 2D. I don't care if it's not pixel art (it would be better), I just care about the gameplay being that of a sidescroller Castlevania.

This game will probably be a spin-off of the new mythos they are trying to stablish.

As long as we don't know what will be featured in the game, there's hope.

Grain of salt and all that jazz but a Neogaf member "Santiako" say's he knew about the game for a while and say's Mirror of Faith will feature 2D gameplay like the DS games.

He doesn't go into plot details though.

Of course it's going to look worse than it would on a console; it's a handheld game. That didn't stop God of War: Chains of Olympus, MGS Peace Walker, Resident Evil Revelations, or Final Fantasy Type-0 from being made. Cast off Stage 1: Denial. Move on to Stage 2: Anger.

if I don't get my main console Castlevania, I will cry.

Still, EXCELLENT NEWS

And someone posted this in the thread too.

Not sure when this was taken.
