EDIT: And if I recall right, didn't you say your source came from 4chan? o:
He's an anonymous, and yes. I didn't believe him for awhile either.

The IGA bashing needs to stop, too. That's been going on for even longer.

Personally I prefer pixel/sprite games for 3DS and 2.5D for Vita. But whatever.
IGA bashing usually comes up when people start LoS bashing.

basically, when people start bitching about LoS, someone will bring up some of IGA's faults as the counter argument.

It's... kind of inevitable IMO, given the circumstances.
Laura and Gabriel arrive in the deepest cave of the castle and... they find IGA.

Trevor would probably end up using Alucard as his name in this game. Like what Adrian did.
That'd be interesting! :)

But IIRC, Gabriel's real name isn't Gabriel Belmont. He was named by the Brotherhood. I'm pretty sure his real name was Mathias Cronqvist. So, Trevor/Alucard wouldn't be his son, but another guy called Belmont.

OMG mind blown by all the theories! XD

Hear, hear. I'm all for a truce.

IGA bashing usually comes up when people start LoS bashing.

There have also been cases where it was the other way around. Both sides have done wrong in that regard.

Pixel Art for Vita and 2.5D for 3DS would be a lot better. The Vita does pixel art A LOT better than the 3DS, no question.

Like I said it'd make sense if Trevol Belmont is Gabriel Belmonts son. He changed his name to Belmont, and it would link the Belmonts to Dracula while connecting Alucard to Dracul.....

It's a clever idea if they are truly doing this. It bridges son of dracula and the belmont clan together. Trevor Belmont would essentially be Alucard since he would possibly be the son of Gabriel ( dracul)...

Maybe the battle will never end, but I have a Dream that iga lovers and cox lovers will get along in harmony...

No but seriously nothing moves forward right when folks argue about something I wonder if this falls under that obnoxiousness we were talking about a couple days ago.

The fact that a Castlevania game for a Nintendo portable is an inevitability, I don't think with this news you should take him with any credibility. What other things did this person claim? We'd see a Zelda on the Wii U? ;)

The order named him Gabriel, he gave himself the Belmont surname due to his love of mountains and high places. he had no known surname otherwise. (the cronqvist theory is just a rumor in universe)

so he's pretty legit as a Belmont, only they merged both the Belmonts and the Cronqvists here.

Dohohoho

I'm no idiot, I'm still somewhat skeptical about this. I hope you guys don't hate me too much if everything turns out to be BS in the end. :(

In Reply To #66,

Almost as clever as Alucard hooking up with Sonia to produce Trevor. Almost.

I won't understand the hate from this...

Does everyone actually appreciate the laziness of Iga's team? They recycle more than they created, half the areas in their most recent games are copy and paste box rooms over and over again. Lords of shadow wasn't perfect but it sure was far more creative and inspired as far as level design goes.

There is good creativity and bad creativity.  Also their LoS level design was so flat and so not Castlevania with more hanging and climbing than actual jumping/platforming.   And the whip was too weak.   Flashy GoW combos on a beefed up enemy is not what Castlevania combat should be like. 

Even reused Legos can create a masterpiece out of the same pieces rather than some stone carved trash that doesn't even "understand" or care to understand and respect Castlevania's nature.

Also Iga is very underrated and underappreciated for everything they've done for Castlevania since SOTN to HD.  Sure their 3-D ones were a flop but they still felt more Castlevania than anything from LoS.

I would place Cox and their misguided team in the same category as those careless idiots from Ninja Theory.  They only further prove non-Japanese developers can't do videogame franchises of Japanese origins right.


LoS should of just been called LoS.  it doesn't deserve the Castlevania title.  it just caused more fans to feel betrayed and abandoned.   

Nothing good can ever come from Cox and their team.   of course final evaluation of this 3DS project will be put on hold but their reputation is already far below Castlevania standards.


Some fans can be desperate for anything new Castlevania, but that doesn't excuse Cox and co. butchering/ignoring the essence of Castlevania gameplay and original lore/timeline.  Things were fine Iga handling it until Konami handed over the franchise to some foreigners.

...Trevor as Simon's son works...

Just wanted to point out...

Quote
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.

For some reason I want Leon to be Gabes son. Also I may not like Alucard that much I just do not think it would be a good idea if trevor was alucard it does not sit right in my stomach.
