I'm going to predict the events of this game are going to lead into Dracula reincarnating into Soma.

I wonder if the Grimoire contains Nostradamus' prophecy regarding 2035...

There's no way Lucy isn't going to end up a vampire at some point. Unlike the book version she'll probably be cured tho.

If she isn't playable as a Charlotte/Yoko skin, she'll probably become one after that

I think it would be rather stupid and a huge missed storytelling opportunity/out of character moment for the whole franchise if it didn't, given how the Castlevania narrative myth-arc has unfolded over the years.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

In GoS, Alucard can turn into wolf. Here it is:



The funny part of that is that I had already predicted 90% of this wolf design way back in 2014, down to the yellow eyes, furrier neck back and shape of the white patch of fur:



The sprite was unveiled here, for anyone interested :P

This is just a joke, people. It's just a funny happenstance that made me laugh and I wanted to point out. I can obviously tell the differences.

cool, a wolf form that uses Alucard's normal color palette. 

as much as i'd like to see this come to Nintendo Switch, i might prefer an arrangement of some kind.  platforming seems a bit tricky with the touch screen and i'm sure they could come up with much better platforms and enemy placements if they didn't have to worry about the touch screen.  heck, they created so many 3d models in this game they might as well reuse them in an upcoming console game - maybe having otherwise nothing to do with GoS.

@Reinhart77: Here's hoping Konami still wants to go console, when clearly they worship micro-transactions on mobile.

So are Trevor, Adult Maria, Richter, Albus and Johnathan not going to be playable?

According to this video you use them as EX Attacks...

That was explained on that screen showing Richter, if I remember well.

It says that as your character levels up, they will be able to summon "past heroes to demonstrate great power".

Damn. I thought they were talking about unlocking the characters in order. Like Charlotte ---> Maria ---> Shanoa

wow I do love your wolf sprite if only I had money I'd pay someone to make me sprites and backgrounds and even program it. but I'm broke :( me and Thaddeus was going to make a deal for him to do some sprites for me back in the day. when I still had hopes of making cursed blood. I was going to get him make me a new kid alucard sprite the one I made was cool but just a shorter and slimmer version of the sotn one with a new face. but he disappeared and I gave up on all that. but if I had the money I would pay to get my game made lol oh well lost dreams.l

as for this game only thing I like about it remakes a bunch of sotn badys but seems really lame as for game play just seen the videos. they should have just made a sotn thing that looks like this but change alucards run back don't like the dragging sword behind him. anyway no iPhone so won't play this

It doesn't seem to be like that. For example, Maria from SotN doesn't appear to be a new character model (she might have been shown in the loading screens), but she's a specific item crash for Alucard.

I liked the beta so i'll look towards Grimoire of Souls, but i'm still waiting a new Castlevania game for console.
Random thoughs: loved Lucy's design, she looks a lot like Julia Laforeze though  ;D
I personally would love to see Eric or Sypha
I'd love to see them too. And Grant, the guy needs more love.

This is a hard pass for now.
If they do a shitty steam port some day, I'll give it a try.
I'm not too keen on yet another cash grab ensemble Castlevania game.
At least it has some effort put into it, instead of an all out asset flip.
