New Castlevania Gameplay: Combat, Platforming Goodness
All the trailers are nice, but it's even better when we can lay eyes on a relatively long gameplay clip.
If you're fluent in Japanese, you'll be able to understand what the people are saying during the playing of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow at this past week's Tokyo Game Show. Pretty sure I know the Japanese word for "hi." But anyway, it's the action that's important: don't know about you guys, but it's the speed that stood out first and foremost. Gabriel moves faster than I would've expected and the fluidity/frame rate appears to be top-notch. There's basic combat, platforming, and even a big boss battle.
You even zip right along in the platforming elements, too. Puzzles will also be a part of the game, so Lords of Shadow should be a complete package that never grows tiresome. I like that "extendable" cross weapon of his - that's what he's using here, right? - although I could find myself hoping for different weapons, ala God of War...
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow arrives on October 5.
