Sorry if this has already been discussed but I couldn't find any info about this here. Apparently, Hideo Kojima announced "Castlvania: Lords of Shadow" for the PS3 & XBOX360. Best news ever if you ask me!

The news would be better if it was announced for the wii as well.

Yeah, the wii is constantly left out in the cold.

I'm sorry but hasn't the DS had 3 and the Wii have 1 Castlevania game? Personally, I could care less what anyone thinks about it but it was a Castlevania game. How many have appeared on the PS3, 360 and PSP? 1 I believe and it's a remake...not every game can appear on the Wii and Kojima has made it common practice over the years to share the wealth. I got almost every Castlevania game, missing the SNES and 64 game, I kind of enjoyed Judgment, and will be picking this one up too but if it's anything like the PS2 games, trust me Wii owners, you won't miss it.

That's disappointing. I was hoping for a proper Castlevania game for Wii that used the Wii Motion Controls. Instead we're left with a crappy fighting game with characters that look like they're getting ready for a bondage session. Why do Wii owners always have to get the shaft?

I meant the Wii is left out in the cold lately when it comes to titles like Resident Evil 5 & Street Fighter 4. I loved the GBA & DS Castlevanias. I've only heard negative things when it comes to 3D Castlevania games but I hope Kojima can change this.

@SilentJTatsukuno vs. Capcom is Capcom's answer to the recent shafting of Wii.As far as Konami, the whole world was surprised to see a GCN remake of MGS last console war (amazing game BTW)... Maybe we'll get a "Wii-make" of 2 and 3 next?!

It seems like it might be a pretty good game but probably not too much of a real castlevania title. Maybe we'll get a Iga produced castevania for wii

That would be great. I know people keep saying a Castlevania needs to be made for WiiWare, but I'd much rather they make a SotN-esque game for retail and pack even more content and better graphics than before, proving once again that 2D can still be glorious on home consoles.

Castlevania, though while great, isn't a favorite franchise of mine (too difficult and I found the jump to be not high enough, I'm used to Mario's jump), but I find the new one rather interesting. It looks cool, and depending on impressions and more vids, I might pick it up for my Xbox. SoTN was my least favorite out of the ones I've play (original, III, Super, SoTN). I couldn't stand combining hard enemies and a non-linear world. Too much for me!

What about the double-jump, and the backwards-flip jump?

Wow. I thought SotN was an incredibly easy game (at least in comparison with earlier games in the series), but the other Castlevanias you list are pretty much impossible to me. The Belmonts just aren't agile enough to evade most of the cheap shots thrown at you in these games, and the frequent bottomless pits that are so easy to be knocked into since you have no midair control after being hit by an enemy just make things much harder.

Yes I totally agree with you Adam.Just like Nintendo did with Wario Land Shake It! and Super Paper Mario, its a good thing to bting back what made gaming so much fun. Even Muramasa and NSMB Wii are 2 more side-scrolling adventures.Don`t forget about LBP, lol

III was certainly hard due to the jumping limitations, but is still easily tied for my favorite. It was difficult in a good way, and with the code system (annoying as it was to write them down), the difficulty didn't matter all that much. Besides, if I wasn't in the mood for Trevor's stiff jumping, I'd just go to the Clock Tower and get my little wall-climbing buddy.

Huh, I didn't realize just how many sidescrollers Wii is going to have soon. That's great!
Shake It may well be the most boring Wii game I've yet to play, but it's still nice to have a token side-scroller as a gesture.
The two games you listed coming out this year, Muramasa and NSMB, look much better than Shake It and SPM, too, so this ought to be a good year for people who like their scrolling on the side.

@Adam: I found SoTN hard, but then again I found Super Metroid challenging (not Castlevania level though). Open world games aren't my cup of tea
And I agree with Shake It! I found it a bore, and some unnecessary motion control was added, like in that second boss fight in the car. Ugh.

Castlevania: lords of shadows feels more like God of War than Castlevania (it looks fun thought). It's a shame the wii doesn't get a new castlevania adventure game...maybe we will get one next year...

Hopefully this will be a GOOD 3D Castlevania 'cause from what I've heard the recent 3D ones has been rather meh.
I hear its amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on hari-kiri rock!!! I NEED SCISSORS!!! 61!!!

In my opinion, Lament of innocence and Curse of darkness are both excellent games. The combat is solid, the art style is great and the music is some of the best find in the Castlevania series. However I can't say the same for Castlevania Judgment, it's an awful broken game. The guard breaks leaves you vulnerable to character with higher priority and you can't even use throws.
