wow, that ukiyo-e style Mina looks amazing, thanks for sharing those.
I literally cannot wait to play it, i would have never thought i could get so much interest in a mobile game, even an Akumajo one, actually i was pretty disappointed when it was first announcend, but it has reaaally grown on me seeing videos and promotion in general

Played through the first level and the controls are very intuitive and responsive which was one concern I had. Overall I think I'm going to end up putting a bunch of time into this game. Dammit Konami lol!

I’m playing Fire Emblem Heroes on my phone and am loving the art.  That game is inspiring me to look up the history of all the past games in the franchise to figure out who the characters are.  I’m pleased at the thought of other people who don’t know much about Castlevania’s history becoming interested in the myriad characters in the artwork and playable characters and “history lessons” in this game.

It's a smart move by Konam, a lot of people are gonna get this because of the Netflix anime, so they will need a crash course... Possibly in preparation for a new *real* game?

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

Imagine Harmony of Despair with story, where you go solo for the main story, no need to buy anything, since most items are cosmetics and 5 stars equipment very easy to acquire for free. There is no PvP, only a mode similar to HoD.

It works with a PS4 controller once you get past the four-stage tutorial.
So it's... actually worth playing!  However, I'm gonna have to get some kinda phone controller thing.

I think I'll start checking some other websites just in case there have been more posted elsewhere.

Also, story spoiler in this link (though... I saw this coming a mile away, and I'm betting most of you did, too):

It's actually not that bad of a game, not gonna lie. I didn't even know about the soft launch in Canada until Facebook Ads pretty much told me about it so I thought I'd give it a try. Combat is great. I have been loving bloodstained but I think it was about time combat in Castlevania followed more of a DMC/Combo based style. I love the fact that unlocking "Maria Mode" doesn't just leave me with me just using her doves and basic sub weapons. The fact for the first time we see Maria getting some RPG choices in weapons like different bird species and Simon's variety of whip choices and different varieties of sub weapons (Because there are more than one type of holy water, cross and axes) has given me hope that in whatever the next hopeful legit  Castlevania title is, unlocked characters are still given RPG and depth.

I have heard that this game elaborates a little bit more on what exactly the job of the Morris family is, anyone that can lay some sweet spoilers on me?
