Richter has been confirmed as a playable character.  Also saw encounters with Maria and Shanoa in the new trailer.

Return to Castlevania looks better than the main campaign of Dead Cells, itself.

So far…great game, content, control and humor…

But so far am not liking the mixing job in the CV tunes…vampire killer seems they added way too much boost at 250-400 hz, sounds way too muddy down there.

Hey guys, I played Dead Cells once when it was fairly new because it was already being compared to Castlevania, and my impression was "this is neat, I should come back to it soon!" but for some reason I didn't. :(

My question is, should I take some time to familiarize myself with the base game before diving into this DLC?
Pfft. Like anything's ever going here

A refresher course couldn't hurt.

I was concerned that it might take a while to level up to the point I could even reach the Castlevania stages, so I played the game a while before the expansion was released.  Turns out, I didn't really need to do that, since the exit to the first Castlevania stage can be found in the first stage.  All you need is a few runs before the content is available.  It would be quite possible to just jump into the game.  Up to you how comfortable you want to be with the mechanics before tackling the Castlevania stages or how leveled up you'd like to be.  You could learn them in the Castlevania stages or other stages.

No need, you can tangle things in any order you want, the learning curve will be the same same no matter where you go

My thoughts so far :

Great game! I hadn’t played Dead Cells so far but I love it’s breaking-wall humor, referencing and mocking other metroidvanias , even when outside of the castlevania DLC.

As for the castlevania stuff :

It is funny, and a breath of fresh air. I like it better than Bloodstained RoTN already, the Dead Cell system is the perfect implementing of Rogue Like in a 2D, it is a pity they couldn’t do this with Bloodstained like they original promised in the KS. With that being said, the controls of Dead Cells are much better

The music : I was very happy to hear some songs that haven’t had new arrangements in over 2 decades. I am thinking the Dracula resurrection song / last boss music from Castlevania IV for example. This is great! But many mixes are feeling rushed, and I felt the same way about many (non castlevania) tunes on Super Smash ultimate , it was largely quantity over quality. But I can’t fully judge yet, I’ve only heard about 6 tunes of the 60 available. But yeah, as noted earlier, the sound mixing feels a bit off, its like either the bottom end is muddying things or the high end/midrange frequencies are dampened…

I made it to Clock Tower today, and almost made it to drac for the first time I think, but I did something stupid…and this game really punishes your for doing stupid things. But I love this aspect, it really forces you to think before you press a button (or don’t…) too slow by a second and it’s instant death and back to square one…

But the run to the Clock Tower had some really funny moments only a true CV diehard would get…

So been playing around a bit.

Holy F , the Castlevania themed items are awesome, even though it’s just a costume , I feel like I am Sotn z Maria running around killing things the way she is animated.

Deaths Scythe is bloody awesome…overpowered as heck if you find one with base damage, and the after effect when you kill enemies…such sweetness, Konami shoulda thought of that


The cross feels classic

Holy Water is strong but you can’t spam it like the old days…

Finding and using Maria’s Cat…lol

I unlocked the Maria costume which is neat because it's a complete transformation visually. Now I have to tackle the Clocktower. You can switch all music to Castlevania tracks in the options menu from the title screen. I've been playing Dead Cells for years and this is a great collaboration.

Over 4000 HPs and Dracula just cheesed me in 3 shots….

I did thankfully manage to play richter mode and unlock his costume this time though.

I've got to Dracula a few times using the Simon costume. I think it's fun the things Dracula says while you fight him. You had to read the text, but he says things like (btw some of these are not exact I'm going off memory:

You're ancestors did better.

Nice dodge, your ancestors would be proud.

(If you die) I guess I'll wait for your descendant.

Our families used to be friends.

(If you die) I had such high hopes for this fight.

I'm sure he says others and might say things different based on the costume I'm using. After I beat him with Simon, I'll do Richter and Trevor.

I thought I wrote this a few day ago, but I guess I didn't? Anywho, I was just saying I enjoy the banter and taunts Dracula gives you while you fight him.
