Not familiar with the series outside of LoS but everyone seems to think the guy at the end is someone called Alucard. Which is a dumb name.

eh, It could be Alucard. But, It could also be Hector.

...I think it's more likely Alucard (The Son of Dracula).

That almost brought a tear to my eye. It looks beautiful.

Seriously though hopefully this means i can rebuy LoS with the DLC... Seriously I refuse to pay the price those guys were charging for DLC.

I got to say are they just pandering to fans to win back the old cry, by saying "look we got alucard that one guy everyone loves so we're cool again".

The DLC is on offer for Plus at the moment but it's still too expensive.

It's a shame that they've apparently ignored the context of the epilogue and kept the game in the past. But I suppose a modern setting would just piss fans off even more.

Some of the games were in the present.

Thats not the point, he thinks by it being the present it wouldn't be like classic castlevania. So fans would be more pissed off. But it shouldn't make a difference seeing as thats been a series norm.

Aria of Sorrow & Dawn of Sorrow both take place in 2035 & 2036 respectively. ...And yes, There are pistols and RPGs. Very Happy ...In both, I believe. (Haven't played much of Aria, But have beaten Dawn atleast twice over now.)

Surprised no-one's keeping up with this anymore. Or has everyone assumed I would since I did so with Mirror of Fate?

Do I need to play mirrors of fate to follow the story?

It may help. The game itself could literally be played once and you'd be done with it for good, Both gameplay-wise and story-wise. Every character is basically the same with some changes to make them different (Simon can summon ghosts as assists/shields, Alucard can acquire powers, Trevor becomes Gabriel 2.0). Here's a basic run-down of the story, If you're curious enough.

MoF: Chapter 1: Gabriel Belmont:
 

MoF: Chapter 2: Simon Belmont:
 

MoF: Chapter 3: Alucard:
 

MoF: Chapter 4: Trevor Belmont:
 

MoF: 100% Completion Ending:

I read a review of Mirrors of Fate I can't believe its not a metroid vania but just 2d LoS. It doesn't sound like its worth playing at all.

It was something of a letdown once I came off my hype horse, Yes. But I'm still glad I got to play a Castlevania game that has Trevor in it. Now if only PSN would just put Curse of Darkness on sale, I'd be set. lol

You can pre-order this on PS3 for 28 at Amazon. 360 version is 36, so I suspect it's an error. Get it while it's cheap!

Mirror of Fate is pretty bad, I'd just read up on the story and skip it.

Steelbook is probably the best option, since Amazon hs fixed the price now. My order is still for 28 though. Gotta love Amazon's price guarantee.

Or you could GAME exclusive Collector's Edition for 100. That's a totally reasonable price.

It's fine, But only if you plan to play it only twice or something. (Once to beat the game, And then once more to collect everything you missed to get the real ending. The new unlocked difficulty isn't really worth going through it again.)

Ofcourse, If you genuinely don't want to play it for whatever reason but want to read the story. I've actually typed out a summary twice. Once here on this topic (2 posts up from chaosdragon) and then again on the MoF topic (The first time I did the summary, I'd forgotten I typed it before when I did the one here).

I just realised this, Yaiba and EDF all come out at the end of next month, and surprisingly this is the cheapest.
