Castlevania Easter Egg in Playstation Ad?

This article says there’s a Castlevania easter egg in it.  I have no idea what it’s pointing at though.  Any idea?

As neat as it would be to think this might mean there’s a new Castlevania on its way, maybe it’s just a reference to the Castlevania Anniversary Collection or something.

The article is tripping balls with that screenshot. This is the shot they should be using. Notice what is supposedly the "Dragon Quest slime"



And yeah, I can tell no Castlevania at all in there. I've read people saying the first character is a Belmont but I'm not seeing it. This moment is at 00:46 of the video.

The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

I can see it. Unless it can be confirmed that it is meant to be someone else from another game, it sure looks like a Belmont with his whip spiraling around him.

I don't see how something that looks like a brown tear-shape is a reference to a Belmont, nor can I see how that blue thing at the same time is a reference to the Slimes. Plus, the use of the Meteor doesn't have to mean FFVIIR, it could just mean FFVII in general.

This is definitely just Dragon Quest X. The first silhouette matches the shape of the art for the ogre class very closely. No Belmonts here I'm afraid.

Thanks! That answers that. Although besides the slime there's another image that's still unknown. Is there another DQ element that'll fit there?
