Rapier Clan for life.
SOTN speedruns with Iga happening right now. http://www.twitch.tv/romscout
Just wanted to share this because the line
Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content)
made me burst out laughing.
honestly if you made a game with a tagline like "High Speed Erotic Violence"
i'd be pretty into it
Real trailer starts at 0:41
Art style actually looks like a nice stylistic compromise between east and west, old nes macho cv and Ayami era pretty boy cv. I can dig it.
Fingers crossed that this'll be a solid adaptation!
Better not suck.
For those who haven't been following, comic writer Warren Ellis is writing this, so it's at least in the hands of someone with experience with these sort of stories.
I am legitimately surprised by the lack of negative feelings I have about the trailer. Hopefully I feel the same about the show.
What has Ellis done in this vein? To me he's just the guy who wrote Transmetropolitan and does an amusing Alan Moore.
I'm not impressed but it probably won't suck super hard unless it just shits the bed that bad
Anticipating boring orchestrated versions of Bloody Tears and Vampire Killer
He's done a lot of comics, most of which I'm only passingly familiar with, but that's at least some grasp of the fantastical pop entertainment thing.
That would infuriate considerably less than Lord of Shadows doing boring orchestral shit without even referencing any old CV tunes. But don't get me started on that shit.
okay but how about making a video game?
Ha ha ha, get a load of this crazy dreamer lmao^^^
Maybe I haven't played enough CV, but making Vampire Killer boring kind of sounds like an accomplishment to me.
I mean, they're starting from the good beginning with Trevor Belmont, I think we got to see a sneak peek on some of the characters, like Sypha and Alucard, which gives me hope we get a nice gothic horror action oriented Castlevania series.
I didn't expect to feel optimistic for this show, and even now I'm kind of scared to. When it was first announced, my friend and I were pretty certain they'd end up doing some throwaway CG bit, but stubbornly we still wished for something that resembled Vampire Hunter D. Surprisingly, from the teaser, that actually looks a lot like their inspiration here. I don't know how they managed to get through Konami's nonsense in order to pull this off, but now I'm feeling like it's possible that someone in charge of this thing might actually give a damn about Castlevania.
Speaking of Warren Ellis, the guy's done good character driven stories for a bunch of properties (lot of Marvel stuff, my personal favorite was his work on Nextwave), so with CV3 as the framework, and enough creative freedom, he's definitely capable. If he's invoking his experience from a series like Hellblazer, then a project like this should be relatively straightforward for him as long as plays it well with the storyboards.
Of course, that also depends on what animation studios are working on it. Is it true that what we've seen so far is all from Frederator? That might actually be the bigger surprise from all of this!
Where's Grant? I am disturbed by the lack of Grant in that trailer.
We need multiple seasons covering the most well known games.
Season 1: Dracula's Curse
Season 2: Original game and Simon's Quest
Season 3: Rondo and SotN
Season 4: Aria and Dawn of Sorrow (with flashbacks to the 1999 events because WE NEED IT)
and finally "I'M INTERESTED IN THIS."
I hope that this is based off of the events of the pachinko game.
Art Eater posted a ton of gifs from a screening with some commentary along with this source.
Visually looks very solid. Further intrigued.
This is how you do a videogame adaptation.
Great art direction, great animation... I love how it includes a lot of nods to the game without feeling out of place or anything. As a big fan of Castlevania i'm really excited 'w'
Well i watched the whole first season.
It was really great, loved Trevor, a really good mc. Loved the Berserk-ish tone the story had overall, and i like the blend between NES era, SotN and the LoS continuity the show had, while feeling like it's own thing too.
I was however disappointed there was no remixes of classic CV tunes though (even random notes showing up! I don't know...)
And also Grant being absent... Even as a cameo? Weird. Maybe they're keeping him for the next season?
Season 2 is confirmed to have eight episodes
oh man now I gotta watch this
this is how berserk should've been
I was really thinking about this the whole time i was watching...
Maybe in another dimension we got a terrible cgi castlevania cartoon and Berserk is a great 2d animated show, hahah :^)
I was reading about all the good reviews of the show and I saw a gif of Alucard using one of his special moves from SotN.
"I'M INTERESTED IN THIS."
I want to watch it but I don't want to support Konami. What do?
I love castlevania so much I care 0% about konami being involved.
imma watch it all tonight.
getting the popcorn
I'm gonna watch it tomorrow.
I hope you guys have fun! It's a really nice show.
And yeah, it's not like Konami was deeply involved in the project so...
good old Dan. This dude is a cool guy. [he's also a fan of LZ go figure]
Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood rated for PS4 in Korea
I'm happy, but also worried.
Just rerelease all the Metroidvanias including the GBA ones on Switch, very simple proposal
Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of The Night & Rondo of Blood announced for PS4
It's the original Rondo of Blood and not the Dracula X Chronicles version.
Comes out the same day that season 2 comes out on Netflix, October 26th.
Fucking Hell yeah I was hoping to replay SotN for Halloween anyway
