It's kind of bending the truth... There are 4 different campaigns. It's doing a Kingdom Heart: Birth by Sleep where each campaign is about 5 hours long (10 hours long in BbS). This means you'll most likely be retreading a lot of familiar territory.

The game just looks bland and ugly too me. It lacks the environmental charm of the original LoS and of the old 2D handheld games. Making the game in 3D seems to have reduced the enemy variety and making it more of a 2D GoW-action game seems to have taken out all RPG elements and equipment management that I found to be great in the past titles.

In conclusion, DO NOT WANT, but I will try the demo, and hopefully I find that I'm wrong and will be pleasantly surprised.

first of all game developers all the time say that their games are longer then they end up to be and second it doesn't interest me its a shame that konami isn't letting iga make the game it looks to be the end of the great running handheld CV games

I think it looks sweet. So glad I preordered this. 3DS has some good games rolling out the next couple of months.

Looks pretty good... not a huge fan of the art style though.

I've played and beaten many Castlevania games and tbh this one does not interest me at all:?

It looks like a steller game, I just hope it's not rigid with it's time base like on CastleVania 64 unlockables...

Do I need to play the original LoS that's on consoles to fully enjoy and understand this?

Well 5 hours for a Sidescrolling metroid or castlevania is not that bad at all. Quite average.

Most Castlevania games take an average* of 10 hours to beat.. Average taken from howlongtobeat.com

I played a Castlevania game on the DS, not sure what it was called. I liked it though. I'll have to remember this game down the road, doesn't look bad.

Oh look, smartitude!

The idea that a game's dev needs to artificially pad it's time by making you play it multiple times should be outlawed.
