Surprisingly they didn't mention the other one, only the 3DS game.

Fuck, I only hope it's 2D gameplay. I don't really care if I'll have to play with Gaybriel or not, just give me 2D gameplay and I'm in.

@Kingshango: Not surprised at all. The 3DS game has to have been in production long before anything for Vita was even on the drawing boards.

@Maedhros: Seriously doubt on the the 2D gameplay since they're actively trying to run away from everything that was a norm in the elder series.

Also not surprised that Cox and Alvarez are working on it since it was hinted at ages ago.

Hopefully they listened to fan complaints and are veering away from the LotR feel that the first game had in distasteful amounts.

E3 is gonna be amazing for Castlevania fans if everything else he told me comes true.

I'm actually suprised they managed to top their previous game title in terms of genericness. I guess this mirror is the new MacGuffin?

I'd say it's a high chance that this will be 2D. ;D

@OSM, yep im hyped as well if everything he said was true.

The information from the source that OSM was talking about (rumor):

Quote
The game will be a Metroidvania, 2.5D. 3D graphics but side scrolling, so think Dracula X Chronicles on PSP. Lords of Shadow canon/art direction, the combat will be similar to LoS.

There will be no leveling up, and the design of the game meshes stages with Metroidvania maps, so I guess something similar to Order of Ecclesia?

First he told me he believes the protag is Alucard, but now he thinks it could be Trevor Belmont when he had no textures put on him at the time. Whoever it is, the protag uses a whip. There will be a Belmont clan, he assures me Alucard is present, and Trevor is the father of Simon Belmont.

Were supposed to get a CG trailer of Dracula, and two announcements for two new games. 3DSVania which will be a prequel to LoS2 but a sequel to LoS1, and the console sequel.

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).

Unlikely. LoS is separating from the Castlevania norm, and has already established it's first iteration in 3D. It makes no sense for them to revert, if it was profitable. Especially on a 3D system. Likewise, would Konami's executives really allow them to revert to a 2D one after the sales they experienced? I think not. Look at Konami's INSANE business practices lately. They simply do not give a shit either way.

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...
