Here, of course. I was here when the whole thing started.
I did read the post before the edit. Looks like we all have a lot to look forward to!

Wow I honestly didn't know that 99% of the board preferred whips over sword combat.

Whether that means you prefer classvania or metroidvania I don't know, but I'm seeing almost everyone who comments say they are voting for whip.

Make me feel like the minority for voting for sword lol.

That being said I do like Whip combat a lot, I feel it was done best with SCIV with the directional whipping mechanic.

But over all I just prefer the metroidvania over classvania as well as swords over whips.

I personally like the whip for a couple reasons:

-It's novel. Swords have been done to death by now. Even though whip-like weapons have also been done a lot, swords still are the "go to" weapon when you imagine the character.

-Like you mentioned, whip allows for a myriad of different, cool things both combat and platform-related.

-It's the symbol for Castlevania. Even if the game has nothing to do with Castlevania, we all know what is the intent behind it

edit:
looks like a new batch of quotes just became available:


"A new, vital heart, pulsing with the old blood."
-
"You will remain standing when the dust settles, or you will be the dust."
-
"The world falls down around us. It’s up to us few to build atop the rubble."
-
"Some moments are more powerful than others. Use that power as you would a lever."

I'm confused by the "when I trust you with them" part...

yeah thats for sure, tho i think this may hint that we're not actually choosing if the hero's gonna wield a whip or a sword after all

Not to mention that even during the NES era, sword as a weapon is quite too common in action or rpg games like Zelda, Castle of Dragon, Trojan, Maze of Galious, Getsufuu Maden, Sword Master, Rastan Saga, Ninja Gaiden, Frankenstein, Faxanadu, etc.

PoR had multiple weapons, but after you unlock VK that game just clicks. Definitely more satisfying for me to whip things to death.

Also, this is new.

I see that as a win to be honest.

I'd like this to not go down the same path at MN9, seeing how that's turning out.

So I have a theory, we each get a demon's name. We are told about the destruction and reconstruction of the world/castle. What-if, you play from the villain's perspective? Conquer the world, help subjugate humanity and command Dracuiga's forces? Design castles and obstacles to block heros from attacking your lord, but help them defeat your "allies" so you can climb the ranks? Maybe generate enough influence and power to eventually overthrow Dracuiga and claim yourself as ruler?

I see that as a win to be honest.

the subtext tells me that these quotes in particular are a subtle shot at what's going on at Konami HQ & how theyve treated the franchise lately

i probably noticed this just now but looks like whenever i click the whip the sword gets a red "-1" , did someone notice if this would happen as well before or if is it something new? Im also getting often a message about a direct clash between my clan (Cat O' Nine Tails) and Katana Clan

edit:
there it is
-Is a narrow victory over Katana all you seek? You will have to work harder.

-Your clan has a narrow lead over Katana this battle.
