I might give LoS 2 a try if the videos about it look promising. But If it's anything like the original then no way am I buying it.

I am really excited for this! I loved the first one. I've been such a huge fan of the series since it was first around, but I'm kind of glad IGA is kind of finished with his games in the series. I just feel like this is where the series needs to go. I like a good narrative in a game, and that's something that really hasn't been a part of Castlevania with a few exceptions, and LoS pulled it off really well. Also, while I know graphics and 3D gameplay may not always be the most important thing in a game, I have a really hard time connecting to or feeling any kind of emotion to a 2D game with little story. So I just think that while LoS may not be every fans cup of tea, it's nice to see a change.

That being said, I'm hoping for more classic enemies. I was thinking, maybe since all the flea men, and medusa heads and all that are around in DRACULA'S castle, maybe now that Gabriel is Dracula we' ll see things like that.
What a horrible night to have a curse!

That's my fear as well, in the back of my mind I feel that Mercurysteam is just gonna take everything from Lords of Shadow and copy/paste it, make it even less of a Castlevania game and call it a day. I hope it's not the case and that they listened to the complaints and actually make a effort to make it resemble Castlevania as faithful as they can.

Other than that im stoked, Lords of Shadow 2 has nowhere to go but up if the rumored improvements are true, bring on E3!

I agree with some of the other posters. I will keep up with the news on it but if it's like the first one then color me uninterested.

I have my faith in this game. I liked what they did with Lords of Shadow, and having heard and read of the development process, especially the early process, I'm fairly confident the sequel will be very good, if not better, than the original. Given the success of Lords, I feel they will have much more freedom with the game and it's world and story than with the first, now that they have "proven" themselves to Konami and pleased them enough to be allowed a sequel.

IOW, theyve gotten their bearings as far as making first attempt at a Castlevania game- And now that they have their feet firmly in the ground, it's time to make some shit happen.

There's only one thing that I hope Mercurysteam does NOT do like they did with the first game; DLC. LoS 2 should be complete upon release rather then incomplete.

Copy and paste? What makes you believe that? MS is the studio I've seen copying and pasting LESS ever. They didn't do that  even with textures (The Castle ones are amazing, such variety). If anything, they'll only get better.

Everything comes full circle

That was a given.

Consider me cautiously pessimistic. I wonder if they'll announce a WiiU version.

They have made at least 3 other games to my knowledge.

And I still dont get the dislike for LoS, I though it was a fresh, brand new interpretation of the franchise while still retaining somewhat of a Classicvania feel in regards to level progression and areas. (And protagonist from a design standpoint)

Maybe Im just more open minded as opposed to some who are perhaps more rigid in what they want from a Castlevania.

I understand they had some issues as far as the game actually being of the Castlevania IP or an original IP goes, because Konami didnt want MS' Castlevania to upstage the at the time upcoming CV Judgement, and I can imagine that in order to make the game sell better, the adopted a few of the more current game trends. (mainly QTE's) Which is why I feel that the sequel will have much more creative freedom behind it, and possibly more elements people wanted (or less elements they didnt)

Im sure they took at least some of the (more sensible) critiques, and thought them out a bit.

I guess we simply have to wait and see, repeating the same arguments and opinions at each other wont really do much until the game is revealed and we get a glimpse of what it brings to the table.

its my opinion and for the 4th time i tell you , i don't hate los but it makes me miss many things from castlevania so i even prefer iga than MS and yes MS studio created 4 games not only 3 but they created 1 castlevania until now

the first los game has insanely went so far from the castlevania games the designs are just enough to talk about

especially when i went inside the castle i said yes ! now i'm inside the castle and all what i saw is boobs !
