btw... all Vita games are downloaded... sucks for collectors.

all vita games are NOT download only. there is a card slot for vita games, similar to 3ds. theres even room on the game cartridge set aside for dlc and saves. please dont spread misinformation.

successor you can't hide from us forever

SNAKE! My brother! It's been so long... Memories of when we challenged the world and won are flashing before my eyes. We were an incredibly team.

A lot of this thread was
Much of it is bickering, though. Or is that the gamescom thread? I don't know. There's such extreme anger in the fanbase right now. I'm scared and excited for the anniversary to see what we will or won't get and if it will or won't do it justice.

Ahh, okay. I didn't read most of it, to be honest : p
I guess anger is better than apathy. I don't mean to be a debbie downer, but I can't care enough to be angry at this point. Wake me up when Konami stops being misguided with the Castlevania series. -____-

They wanna turn Castlevania into God of War, which means Konami REALLY wants Castlevania to be huge. Which it will obviously never be. But "disinterest"? Nah.
CastleVania was once huge, so it's strange to hear that it will never return to the main spot. Obviously it could be done.
And I believe LOS is the right way to do so, if they will add more elemnts from past games.

If I'm not mistaken, only one or possibly two games ever sold more than 1 million copies, but I may be mistaken here. Anyway, even the original NES Castlevania failed to crack the top 50 of most sold NES games ever. Stuff like Adventure Island and Ghosts'n Goblins sold more. So, Castlevania is a classic in ever possible way, but it was never really huge. It's borderline obscure and was always more or less like that.

Commercially, I don't think CV has ever been big. And I don't mind that at all. I'd like CV to do well in sales, but I kind of also like it being out of the spotlight (not that enjoy having crap like Harmony of Despair). Big sales usually means serving the needs of the casual gamer which is probably why LoS has button-smashing and wall-climbing instead of jumping to avoid medusa heads and finding pot roasts inside walls.

IIRC, Circle of the Moon is currently the highest selling Castlevania game in the series followed by Symphony of the Night and (according to Konami) Lords of Shadow.

Funny how Castlevania didn't sell as much as those games back when the series was still "big".

That's surprising.

I don't know..maybe one should take into consideration how any video game sold in those days. I could be wrong, but people borrowed them a lot more and bought them a lot less. I remember SNES games being around 400 marks (using the latest exchange rate before it was discontinued, it would be around 67.28 €, which would be about 97 $). When you adjust that to inflation and remember that most people had only one system at a time and due to there being a lot less alternatives, people didn't race through the games in a matter of hours (or even days) and get a new one as soon as the old one was passed. At least I didn't.

Yeah that top selling list seems highly debatable.

On the other note-
I would expect something like this to be on the Vita. Well, actually, I was sure they would have their next title for the 3DS... But anyway! It makes sense because if this is truly a remake or port of some of the classic titles they would put it on the least graphically capable system as it would likely be heavily sprite-based. Some hardcores tend to get POed when they see sprites on a next-gen console. Save the completely new and dedicated intensive graphics titles for 3rd-Attempt Playstation and Full-Rotation Xbox.

And personally-
Solely judging by the title of this new one, I'm not expecting too much. I hope I get proved wrong.

I'm interested in this.

I think Gametrailers mentioned it in their Castlevania Retrospective, but I've never heard any sales figures otherwise. I'd like to know if Konami themselves have ever released that data in a more official capacity.

That was the same source that said Ghosts n' Goblins for the NES outsold Castlevania for the NES, which is crazy, yet fairly believable.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

The source about CotM's sales is from IGN.
