I just wonder how revolution-centric the series will be and how much shoehorning will take place. With the first 3 seasons focusing a lot on the theme of religious and cult madness(for the lack of a better term) I don't think they picked Paris(in the time of a revolution no less) on a whim. And it's hard to guess how much characters they'll even retain from the games. I would like to see how they'd handle Orlox and Shaft, but with the way the writters meddle with the canon it's very hard to say.

But hey, we'll get animated Maria, so at least Waffle's gonna be all giddy.

I wonder if we’ll start with child Maria or start directly with Adult Maria.  Maybe with a little flashback here and there from her childhood.  I suppose Richter probably won’t end up saving four damsels this time, but they might be turned into interesting characters.

Why the French revolution? From what I could gather the French reign of terror, which followed the revolution, was far worse in terms of mindless bloodshed. Almost sounds like a missed opportunity there.

It is if you've ever seen the Return to Oz movie. I'm sure that's where the Headhunter came from.

dang they are really clinging to that "Renard" surname lmao

can't wait to see all those guillotines turning into Guillotiners because "they're possessed" or something

Also, the new writer is Clive Bradley. IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0975294/

How do you think they'll characterize Richter? They could make him a famous respected badass with a lot of influence or a spoiled dandy who'd rather have nothing to do with the family business. Both could lead to him being manipulated by Shaft, if they go that route.

I suspect they'll follow his plotline a great deal closer than they did Trevor or CVIII in general, simply because people are MUCH more aware of Richter's story than of CVIII. So, I do believe they're doing the Shaft manipulation bit (if someone doesn't think Shaft's name is dumb, that is). I only hope they don't pull the "cynical hero" again, like every single character on the rest of this show is.

Watch out, Richter Belmont!

Hard agree. Everyone cussed a fuck ton, made self deprecating jokes, and was always quick witted. Comedy could come from anywhere else but Richter really wasn't the type to crack a lot of jokes.

I dunno about that. I don't remember SOTN or Rondo of blood taking place in France during the french revolution so they aren't exactly off to a good start as far as accuracy goes.

It’s going to be loosely based off of RoB. They’re just using some of the characters, the plot is most likely going to be original

The way the show ended doesn't lend itself for a more accurate adaptation either. That being said, RoB happens a few years after the French Revolution, so at least it's not that far off

I mean doesn't rondo take place in 1792? That would place it right smack in the middle of the French Revolutionary period.

So there's little "why" to be had. Times of great upheaval are I feel, underrated points of interest for stuff like this, because there's already a lot of chaos and bloodshed going around that make for a good backdrop to a vampire plot. It's why I think Bloodlines and PoR are interesting tonally, with their WW1/WW2 settings (though I tend to feel POR vastly underutilized it)

Laura and Gabriel arrive in the deepest cave of the castle and... they find IGA.

Agreed. Outside of the story backdrop we see virtually no evidence of WW2 aesthetics anywhere in or near the castle. No abandoned howitzers, troop transports, or tanks. No discarded weapons, clothing, nor even swastika flags or banners, which by 1944 would have been almost everywhere in Europe at that time. We do however see some soldiers turned to stone statues by Medusa in one of the final four paintings but that's stretching things a bit in my mind as it was a painting and not in the real world environment. You can get a uniform armor piece from Vincent's shop but again, it's not convincing enough for me.
