I had a thought about Dracula's Curse as a possible remake. Seeing as how it has so much support behind its remake being done consider this. Doing a version where Trevor has all three comrades at his disposal. I.E. where there are climbable walls Grant would be used. If there is a magical obstacle that can be bypassed or destroyed by fire, ice or lightning then employ Sypha. If you have to fly as a bat then Alucard is at the forefront. As for Trevor he can swing on hooks with the whip and attack other enemies while swinging. These would be scenarios where there are no walls to climb or they can't be climbed there are no problems requiring magic and where flying just isn't practical. It's a fellowship of the bloodline. This reminded me of the home brew Dracula's Shadow and the Lost Vikings games. I figure as long as the switching between characters is fluid it would work really well. In light of LOS2 I must think that the next CV game is going to be excellent and if not a 10 than maybe a high 9. Otherwise the series may be over.

Remember my name and know this. I have Suffolk Down Syndrome.


Stop me if you've heard this one.
A Belmont falls through a trap door into a square prison with no exits. After hitting three sides he smashes through the last one. Relieved and low on health he looks at the camera, smiles and says......"Pork chop?"
ULTIMATE FOURTH WALL BREAK!!! That just happened!!!

This is one of the concepts I've been toying with for my own fan project. As an official game it would definitely be a fresh take on the original with some interesting possibilities.

I'd definitely go for a true team-based CV ala Lost Vikings.

A remake with those features would be pretty cool as it would feel as though you're playing a new game altogether. But if if those features were not to be implemented at all, I'd still be happy since it's Dracula's Curse which is my favorite game anyway.

It always irked me that CV III didn't allow you to have more then one companion to run with you. So I'd be more then willing to see a CV III update that includes every character in one playthrough.

Totally agree, only with new stages and bosses and in totally 2D :).

Like in the Julius Mode in DoS? I vote for that...
