People complaining about no next-gen versions must have not touched LOS on PS3/360

Because if you have played LOS1 by this time you should know well that Mercury Steam has some seriously talented GFX artists that makes their games look as next-gen as possible on current gen platforms.

The Clos 2 launch isn't close by, but when it does arrive it'll be great. People complaining about there being no next-gen version should play it on the platform that's always next-gen - PC.

We need a good Castlevania on PS Vita. Would look epic on the awesome Vita screen.

It looks terrible. If it didn't have Castlevania in its title. I would never guess it was part of the series

I loved the Los! Still can't believe the 2 DLCs for the original cost 20$, more than the game itself. Horrible pricing Konami.

And just when people thought the visuals couldn't get more better than LOS1...Biim...brand new engine,highly improved lighting and detail whilst maintaining the same sharpness along with a cinematic free-camera and much more open and seamless environments....MSteam truly knows the ins and outs of the current-gen hardware..

Honestly the first one was a truly epic,lengthy and a very memorable adventure..Mercury Steam is a truly brilliant studio.

A next-gen version with improved graphics would be nice, but either way I'm getting this on day 1 for sure. Another reason to hold on to my 360.

Great, can we get a real Castlevania after that and Mercury Steam can make some original IP since it's clearly what they want to do?

This is still #1 on my wishlist for 2014. Also, Mirror of Fate coming to PS3, woo!

Meh, those damn consoles are pushing the game forward. Oh well, i'm still looking forward to it.

Mercury Steam are a very talented studio, so I'm sure this was for the best. Still, it's going to be so hard to wait for this amazing-looking follow up to one of my favorite games of the generation. 

Oh well, I will have to console myself by playing Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition on my PC for the next couple of months.

@Hurvl Thats true there is no next gen platform.

There is only pc.I have a pc 4 years now and it's going to continue for another 4 without the need of upgrading.This way im always on next gen.

Consoles will never reach pc graphics because we are 5 years ahead or more.

@WilliamChase thats why im still holding unto my current gen console even after i buy a next gen console. the current gen of games is far from over.

@Snakepond1 Duuude with all these games coming out you gotta keep your console. Ill buy my ps4 in a year or so, there´s no rush i´ve still got plenty to play with.

@Gamer_4_Fun they're not worth it, trust me. It'll make you dislike the original story a little bit because of the outcome.

@WeWerePirates Out of curiosity, what defines a real Castlevania to you? I'm interested in what other fans consider Castlevania's defining traits.

@gamingnerd121 Yea I am still waiting already have the first and second doubt I will get the collect or HD of mirror of fate though don't see the point since I have both games. Was hoping this would be out in November or december but in a way it helps cause now I can look at something else for christmas.

@kalipekona "Console" yourself by playing it on PC? Console/PC - pun intended :P?

@Ibra8 

I'm sure they will. The first Lords of Shadow is already one of the best looking games of the generation.

@Seifer24 @Hurvl I've had a laptop for 2 years now and until recently it could play all the new games. I didn't buy it to play new games, though, as I have a massive backlog, but it is far better than I imagined it would be. I could keep it for several more years and not feel underwhelmed with its specs. There's no need to buy anything additional, not even new games as I already have too many of them. I can play most of them at max settings, although I don't care much about playing every game at maximum, it's enough that it looks good and plays well.
