Hopefully, they're not going with the most boring choice possible and drip feed the rest of the Harmony of Despair characters. I would be fine with pretty much anyone else.
No kidding. I personally would love to see Eric or Sypha

Hokay, so what are your hopes and dreams now that this is going to be a thing? For one, I'm hoping for playable characters who weren't in HOD, like Leon and Cornell.

Christopher Belmont. Dude is responsible for starting the Dracula legend, and gets no recognition whatsoever.
Also Grant, Albus or John Morris would be nice.

I think the 2.5 nature of this game makes 3D characters an eventual given.

Grant... poor Grant never gets any love.  A shame since he's prolly my favourite partner character in CVIII.  Watch as he gets, at best, a cameo.
Christopher Belmont needs more love too, as well as Bloodlines in general.  Also Albus better have that Fei-Long kick complete with those juicy invul-frame.

Ohhhh man that's priceless, I love it well done  :D

But my hopes are

Julius Belmont, Trevor Belmont, John Morris, Eric Lecarde.

Trevor Belmont seems very likely as the new tv show has really pushed him in to the spotlight again, it be soo cool to see eric in His Vampire Killer gear, but sort of updated. But sadly i  really don't see John getting in on this.  Julius Has a Much Higher chance of getting in on this, but i'd like a younger Him. Clean shaven, and a new getup.

But Fingers Crossed that everyones Fav gets a in on this.
Last son of family Belmont.

I hope it's all new remixes.

I would like to see the following characters come back just to see Ayami's depiction of them;

Grant Dynasty
John Morris or Eric Lecarde (Bloodlines needs love)

It was listed in that screenshot, yes. But that tracklist looks like a placeholder.

Or does this game take long after HD, and represents another chance after it was defeated the first time?  I'm guessing that the second game takes place long after Dawn of Sorrow - otherwise they could have probably just used Yoko if they needed a female researcher haha.  Long enough that Yoko is retired but Genya is still employed?

The only possible place I can see GoS happening is before Aria.

On Genya's description it says that he's the only one with power to stop Dracula, something that is not true when Julius Belmont is around -- hence he must be out of commission somehow, something we know was true before Aria.

Then, the story says that Genya received a letter that came to "put an end to the peaceful era" when the story takes place. Well, the castle reappearing on Aria and two dudes who can inherit Dracula's throne going to it is a MUCH worse threat and would have put an end to that era already if GoS happened after Aria. So this little story intro makes not much sense if it comes after Aria.

If it comes before Aria, then everything fits. The peace is ongoing and Genya really is the only one who can stop Dracula during this time.

.....what is throwing me off is the existence of Lucy's organization to "fight Dracula". There would be no need for such an organization if Dracula was indeed permanently defeated as the story says. But then again, the same story does put the book where the castle can revive along with a depiction of Dracula as the centerpiece. So this could be relatively meaningless as the book represents "Dracula" in a way.
The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

Julius out of commission = his amnesia after separating himself from the VK(left inside Castlevania to weaken it) after destroying Dracula in 1999.

The peaceful era which ensued between 1999 - 2035.

Another organisation to fight Dracula because reasons/ plot(twist) armour.

I always had the impression that this is post 1999 pre aria, like plot said.  But Lucy presents no problem.  Dracula has "died" a dozen times.  Just because some priests and a guy in a suit say it's for realsies this time doesn't mean the world is gonna go "cool we'll stop worrying about it bros."  That is what would not make sense.

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.

I think it dosnt tie in any story because of the character (perhaps Alucard learn the art of the Fakes like the Fake Trevor or something like the forge masters :v) you use and since they show Soma and he have the clothes of DoS (but still didnt say anything about him)
 perhaps another timeline? or just a game to play and say this story for the reason to have a story XD
