Well the first picture from the flyer, it's looking like a Japanese shrine...

I'm sure I will get proven wrong soon enough, but the way that flyer is phrased ("prepare yourself, alchemist" actually could suggest some kind of multiplayer aspect. Only MMOs and so on use that kind of rhetoric in their promotional material. If not, it would be a very odd way to refer to the game's main character.

That would explain the multiplayer mechanic in this teaser. I hope a combination, ala Souls: have the main game be whatever it is, and overlap a multiplayer system where clans fight for treasure, presumably in multiplayer dungeons. That stipulation would make the most sense for a 2D game.

Well i like to thing that the alchemist aspect has something to do with combining materials for making equipment and other stuff, than being something associated with MMO.

no seriously, HoD is okay, but after all these years I'd be quite frustrated with a new Castlevania-inspired game by IGA being a multiplayer game of some sort

Yeah, that would definitely be best, IMO.

mann multiplayer is cool and all but, eh i dunno. I almost always get bored with that stuff. I played harmony of despair for like a week or 2, havent touched it since. im not into the social apps like clash of clans or anything. even the multiplayer that was in portrait of Ruin, i tried that only like 2 or 3 times. i just get bored with that stuff too easily

however if Nagumo decides to play then i would have no choice but to join o.o;

So bad@$$! I got these:

There will be other weapons of course, when I trust you with them.
Your clan and the bullwhip clan are at a stalemate. Who among you will be brave to push forward.
A new vital heart, pulsing with old the blood.
The moon looks lovely tonight don't you think Decarabia the Dowdy.

You are like me I assume, you listen when the night calls.

I still don't have the scroll on my cell, and I don't have the watch on either device.  Anyone figured out how to get these?

Go there. Also I think the watch was for only the first day if you were on one of the first battle's winning clans.

I wonder if those graphics (Igacula on the throne, the whip, the sword and so on) are just made for this site? I don't see the game having sprites like that... do you? I mean, sure Shovel Knight have some 8-bit sprites and looks cool, but... I'd like at least 16-bit goodness. And judging by the tiny screenshots on the PAX flyer, the game looks much prettier than these sprites. Also, the portrait of Igacula is radically different from the sprites. They don't go together at all. I hope it's going for THAT look, at least.

Do you think Ayami Kojima did the IGA portrait, btw? It wouldn't surprise me. Or is it just a modified Dracula from SotN? Have to check the original to be sure...
