A little thing I noticed in the screenshots of Dracula's Castle is that somehow, the Count is able to cast a shadow, when by all means he shouldn't since he lacks the soul necessary to do so.  I'm thinking that Nintendo is somewhat referencing the 1992 film with Gary Oldman with the shadow moving separate from Dracula, but almost in sync.

I can't believe no one has mentioned the return of THE BELMONT STRUT!!
Look close and you'll see Simon's walking animation.

Also, Do you guys realize if they include 2 echo fighters... We can have the whole Captain N cast in the game?
Zero Suit Samus -> Kevin
Palutena -> Princess Lana

Richter should either have a taunt or a victory where he says "I'm a Belmont that's my job"

This is the most excited I think I have ever been about anything Castlevania. 

Ever. 

Whoever designed the characters and art for that trailer needs to work on the next Castlvania game.  That's a perfectly wonderful and creepy look for the classic series. 



Also, Kid Icarus, Simon Belmont, and Megaman.  Together again for the first time!  Now we just need a Captain N mii costume...

that Castlevania castle is gorgeous!!  they went all out with their newcomer cinematic sequence and intros.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ke8GxO3_Ml0

both Belmonts look amazing, though Simon should have an alternate costume that keeps that badass hooded cloak.

and the cinematic itself are the greatest newcomer SSB intros EVER (with the exception of Palutena's, she is still is the most unexpected SSB newcomer ever.   its uncommon for nintendo to add a deity to a playable roster. and still one of the most viewed newcomer intros https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQBxNBNj3t8  )

To make them a little different Richter's holy water should slide across the floor. That's how it is in his games.

Can't even remember the last time I signed in here, but I was so damn excited when I saw this. I just wanted to be around someone else and share the excitement. When I came to the main page and saw how long it's been since the last update, I felt a pang of sadness. Here was an active, passionate fanbase that basically got left out in the cold. I know we all wanted this, and in a way, I think we needed this.

Someone should get Kurt to make an update about this and Season 2 of the animated series, just for old times' sake.
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.

if only IGA cared to help keep Sonia Belmont canon and made the successor to the canned Castlevania Resurrection game with retconned story so Sonia's plot doesnt contradict Alucard.  all they had to do was make Sonia the first Belmont, and after defeating Dracula, hold a tradition that men that marry Belmont women must still adopt the Belmont family name (some families actually use that tradition and special exceptions), and a different lore to the vampire killer whip.
very interesting plot possibilities which could have opened the door to new female Belmont heroes later in the timeline which could have side stories and adventures, which dont have to involve Dracula but still other evils, and there could be other vampires too.

 that would have been better than LOI and COD combined.

And Dracula and a couple of bosses as stage hazards. And 34 music tracks.

Needless to say, I'm going to have to cover this game in some detail over on ICVD. Not that I didn't have an excuse to buy it anyway. I mean, it's Smash Bros. If Nintendo ever has a "must buy" game, it's the Smash ones.

I think you're in the wrong thread here, partner.

I'd be happy if we got a game with a Belmont that looks like Simon looks. LoS was a step in the right direction in terms of belmont looks, (and Simon looked great) but what we really need is the barbarian conan look.
Laura and Gabriel arrive in the deepest cave of the castle and... they find IGA.

I've always felt that it's a shame that we never got a game that fully realized the epic fantasy atmosphere of the oldschool game covers.  I'd love to see a modern game with 3D graphics that at least attempted it.  This Simon is honestly the closest we have ever gotten to that.

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.
