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...

Right now I'm sure those graphics are not final.

I tried the site from another device,  got into the bullwhip clan and it stills talks about the Katana as our rivals. I though they were the cat o' nine tails enemies e.e

Igacula sprite reminds me somehow that I still need to play Kid Dracula

If IGA needs help with sprites I could definitely lend a hand if need be. :P

So how exactly does the voting work? There doesn't seem to be any links.

Thanks for the link darkmanx, but I didn't happen to see anything in there.  Anyway, I suddenly seem to have the clock now.  I wonder if you get them based on how long you've had the site open?
Has anyone seen the quote that says something along the lines of: "The weapons are helpful.  Nothing is better than sheer numbers" ?!?  (I don't remember exactly what it said...and it got away before I could type it up.

I hope that this game only has the multiplayer part as optional with the single player campaign having the full story.
I can't guarantee that I can play this game if multiplayer is required. Stupid slow internet....

I hope that this game also has the 3D part as optional. I can't guarantee I'll play it if it's not 2D  :(

By the way, did anyone make a compilation of all the names that Igavania has bestowed?

This is too funny: "Naberius the Nameless"
= How can you be nameless if you have a name?  ;D

I think a vast majority of the fanbase is looking for a great single player experience. It's what Castlevania is about, and it's what sets us apart from Call of Duty fans (even if it's totally fine to be a fan of both, I guess.)

Multiplayer should be secondary, if it's even necessary at all. I know the gaming landscape has changed since the good old days, and a lot of people want the option to play online. So I'm all for an optional multiplayer thing, with extra maps fit for the job. I'll never touch it myself, but I'm happy if it makes other people happy.

I realize I play games on my own to relax and get AWAY from all the people I have to deal with on a daily basis. Gaming is "my time"! Others play games to socialize and I respect that. I just sort of... hate people. They're everywhere!  :o

Everything's been extremely repetitive for me, but that might be because I've picked the whip every time.

Is there really any other choice? j/k

I like how we are hoping for a game, making theories, while knowing nothing. And BOOM, it's a book. lol

And not just any book - a COOK BOOK!
This is IGA we're talking about after all, and if you follow him on facebook you know how much he loves food.

Finally we'll be able to cook wall meat!
