The trailer looks so promising, adrenaline pumping high! Cannot wait to play (my brother is playing LoS 1 here beside me).
Don't care about "oh LoS is GoW rip-off. oh LoS is not so castlevania to the spirit". I enjoyed LoS, I still remember the boss fights, the gameplay and graphics is great. No big deal.
i may not be a big fan of castlevania but i love combat adventure and seeing this generation flooding with FPS i think we are in need of more combat adventures.i have got my eyes on this one.
I can't wait for this game to be released! come on mercury systems! speed it up! Uhm no take your time, I don't want a game half finished. As it will be the last LoS game, this release should be legendary!
Please tell him turn into a werewolf and hypnotize people and mist cloud and a bunch of rats like the move Brim stoker's Dracula!!
Check out the new trailer just released. When pared with this one, it really shows what this game will be.
The LoS story was so amazing. Stories this awesome should be law for games lol. So the trailer showed an epic one sided battle with knights surrounding his castle. I'm guessing they're filling us in on some of the important events that happened between the end of LoS and the "modern times" (pushed out of the window by Zobek) scene. - Fun Fact - Alucard is Dracula reversed to show he stood for beliefs opposite those of his father.
Yes but does Gabriel sparkle now?
Just saw the box cover shot for Castlevania LoS 2 really excited for this one. ^^
I just bought a PS3 last week (after wanting one FOREVER) and first Lords of Shadow is the first game I've played on it. I'm about half way through. So different from the side scrolling Castlevania games that I loved for years. But it's SO good. The music and the beautiful scenery are amazing. Now I see that LoS2 will be coming out next year. I'm sure when I'm done with the first LoS, I'll be aching to continue on with this one. Some games, I just don't want to end.
How is this a sequel. At the end of the first one it showed a CGI of Gabriel and the character voiced by Patrick Stewart in modern times but the trailer for the second one shows them in the era of knights. What gives?
Saying that I loved the game and can't wait for this one. I just hope that they give us more control over the camera.
Well, according to wiki, Alucard is Dracula's son, and if Gabriel is meant to be Dracula, then I guess Alucard is Gabriel's son... I can play as either one!
They have already announced you will be playing as Gabriel. He just has some supernatural powers to go along with his other abilities this time around. Although it would be cool to play as Alucard since he is such a bad ass mofo.
I'm so ******* excited for this game! ALUCARD!!!!! and badass Dracula!!! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
i swear to god that i got goosebumps when i saw this trailer, If this game is as awesome as the first on(which was very underappriciated) it will so kick ass. i just really hope that it come out in the middle of 2013 since i wanna play this game so bad
Awesome trailer! it seems our hero has become darkness (via the expansion) Well that is what i get for not finishing part1. as for the white haired guy, that must be alucard,
When peeps are talking about playing dracula, well if you mean, "get to play gabriel with an evil force within" then yes. that would be cool (as i do not see any dracula in this teaser) but if we do not get to be gabriel, we might get to play as Alucard. if we are lucky we get to play with both or have a chance to pick whom to play. but i think we are going to become gabriel once again. i hope. but either way it will be cool.
its sad, they wont release Mirror of fate for ps3. they should make an expansion out of it for ps3 atleast. like the expansion pack for F.E.A.R for pc.
This game will be awesome. Part 1 was a underappreciated game. If part 2 is anything like part 1 this game will rock. Especially if we can play as Dracula.
We better get to 9lay dracula , it would be 1O times better that way since it never been done before .
@SIRCOXXX actually is Alucard :P
@carlusofwar Gabriel is Dracula. If you beat the first game they show it post credits. Sorry for spoiling it for you.
@carlusofwar dude he is Dracula, you obviously did not finish the first game. and finally a gme that shows Dracula's power for what it should look like!
Also it would be F'ing awesome to play as both as in the whole game with each character because Alucard is the best character in the Castlevaina series
@Gothic_symphony Did you not play the first LoS? Gabriel eventually becomes Dracula, so yes Alucard is his son.
@Gothic_symphony where did u get that from ???
@mikenovak23 i think we get to play Alucard! NOT dracula.
Pretty sure where gonna play as alucard unfortunatly.....
@tokrah no worries.... the trailer already spoiled it for me. so NOT your fault.
@TheOldSage that is what i though/meant.
and your right. I have NOT finished part 1. there so many games and so little time! :)besides, it would be even cooler to be able to finish part 1 and then be able to play part 2 right as the next game, I did the same with Kratos 1 and 2. Soooo awesome.
yes, those powers were amazing. cant agree more.
glad you agree. well then we need to cross our fingers that we will get to be BOTH.
as for the gameplay goes, i think that as long as it is better then part 1 (or same as part1) rather then worse then part 1. - it will be great. if you all know what i mean.?!
@carlusofwar Actually the game will star Gabriel as Dracula while he seeks to regain his lost power to combat a new threat, while dealing with the Belmont clan, who wants him dead.
@carlusofwar no you do get to play as Dracula because the creators say that during a video at E3
@carlusofwaryea your prob right unfortunenately. Who cares I'm just pumped we have another awesome castlevania game to play.
@carlusofwar you think ?? you comment on my post like its fact but here you think ?? Come on don t mislead people on assumption
@TheOldSage They said that? really? can that video be found online?well then i guess it all depends on how they mean, will we get to play as "dracula;dracula" or will it be gabriel:dracula... if u know what i mean?!
do you know?
@deadkingdg the reply button is back. (it was gone few hours ago)
so i sent you a PM but it works now so i reply here aswell. sorry for the inconviance. ignore the PM if u reply here...
I understand. will check that out once i have a chance to finish the gameand to find my copy of the DLC that i your talking about.Feels abit odd dracula would acctually be a belmont. if the case is that dracula is the same guy - forever.how was it,
is this LoS a reboot for the story??!
and if so, why do you think LoS will end with part 2 ?!
do they mean that there wont be anything following LoS2 or does it mean that the next game following LoS2 will be of a story taking place AFTER with other belmont(s). *if you know what i mean*what do you think they mean?
@carlusofwar He will not turn back good. He embraced the darkness at the end of the first DLC and in the ending of the first game, you see him in modern time and he is still evil.
This means that he will not really die in this game (Dracula never really dies, no surprises), and turning good to turn bad again would be pretty stupid.
@mikenovak23 i agree. another casltevania always good!
to add: but as far as we know, this is the case, either we get to play as gabriel (being evil then turning good again) or as Alcuard trying to stop him or help him. we could get to play as both, that be nice. if we got to choose who to play and still be able to play both. that be awesome too. but like you said, it doesnt matter as long as it is castlevania! :D
we could have gotten two games, but it seems they will only release "mirror of fate" for 3ds. that be really sad. no way i am buy a 3ds. not falling for that again.*more later
