If this does well, what game will they adapt into a series next? Rondo of Blood?

Wow, this actually looks kinda cool.  Then again, I guess my expectations were down after hearing Frederator would be animating it.  Still, am curious to see how this plays out now.

The trailer itself is better than all three Lords of Shit games combined. David Cox and his staff of dimwitted fuck asses have been outdone by a trailer. Hopefully he goes to Kennedy's Chicken in NYC and eats himself to the point where he can't walk anymore so that this world doesn't have to stomach his pitiful excuses for video games anymore.

Goddamn you can hold a grudge like a motherfucker.

"Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself."

I honestly hate to be that guy... but it looks... safe?

Everything looks as expected... nothing really stands out to me.
I thought I would be really excited when the trailer dropped but I feel empty.
There isn't much to talk about sadly.

I guess Grant is in it. Yay?

Edit: Nevermind. I guess the knife thrower at the he end was Trevor too.

I agree it was safe as fuck. Not BAD, but safe. I also think they jumped the shark by not using an actual CVIII theme such as Opening.

Also, black haired Dracula. The animation already does something better about CVIII than IGA did (fucking insisting on SotN Dracula for CVIII).

Trevor already has the scar on his eye. Well... I'll be THAT guy and say I don't really like that, as the scar is gained from fighting Dracula at the end. It's his "symbol" of victory. Oh well.

There was a segment of Dante's Inferno that had a similar animation to this. I'm just hoping THIS does it better.
The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

I'd rather have "safe" than another dramatic reboot like Lords of Shadow or something different.

This looks like a great mix of the old high fantasy art from the classic era and a bit of the new from the Ayami Kojima era, I'm getting a little bit of Hellsing and Vampire Hunter D vibes from the overall art direction.

All in all this screams Castlevania to me, they've sold me. I just got one question, though...

Where's Grant???

Whoops, in my excitement I missed that the trailer had been posted lol. Well, it's got me a bit hyped. This could be great. Though still too early to tell. Got my hopes up though.

Turns out Frederator is not animating this after all according to an animator who posts on NeoGAF:

REALLY... reaching for the hate now.  This is looking awesome.  I am so psyched, everybody looks right. Trevor is an awesome fusion of his CoD and Simon in MiD. Coy not be more stoked. Sypha looked perfect, and if alucard puts on a shirt I'm totally game.  Holy crap guys. 😂😂😂😂

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

I hear for the safe route rather than the dark, gritty and serious Lords of Shadow route.

Where's Grant???

"Nah Grant is too dumb" -Warren Ellis

I'm not even kidding.

EDIT: I AM kidding on the way he said that. He used a great deal more words to explain (haphazardly) why he thought Grant was dumb way back on the other script.

While him not showing up is weird considering we have Alucard and Sypha showing up, this doesn't mean Grant isn't there...

...but I sure hope it is.

I wouldn't be surprised if Grant is a no show, seems to be a running tradition to give Grant the shaft.
