Thank you so much for posting this! I probably never would have seen it. My extreme love for Vampire Hunter D is the reason I first picked up a Castlevania game at all. Lament of Innocence was my first, and I played it because the look of it reminded me so much of VHD: Bloodlust. It's been true love ever since.

This. This is the reason I've been gone from the forums, lol. Besides work.
Can't neglect a parent fandom! (In a great way, it's connected to ours by Yoshitaka Amano now!! But it probably was beforehand because of Castlevania/Ayami Kojima, too. She did art of one of the Vampire Hunter D spinoff novels, Greylancer. The more you know!)
Also LeoLeWolferoux , it more than just resembles Castlevania. It shaped it, in a way. After backing the comic and watching the VHD: Bloodlust movie, I can see where a lot of inspiration came from. Castlevania developers were big fanboys of the series, and I find it adorable. Mike has said before that Alucard was inspired by D, and he's right. D can be seen as Alucard's equal or even alternate universe brother. Not only Iga took inspiration from VHD either...several Castlevania games besides the Igavanias have plots/characters similar to the novels. I've read the synopsis of a lot of the novels, I just can't wait to get my hands on them.
Also getting my hands on the new Resurrection TV series coming up, and the comic which is the topic here. Who is excited to see some of D's backstory? I'm also excited for that Pathfinder VHD add-on! I'll have to go get myself a set for the occasion, I've played the game before and love it.

So soon!! I'm so happy. Check on the official Facebook and Kickstarter (that Mike posted) for more info, as always. Preorders are out! Just scroll through the Facebook page for variant covers. Too bad I can't go to NYCC to get the preview issue...(way too far!!)
Also, Chibi VHD. Argh, . So glad I backed this project!!
Yän: All the other ones are variations of a candy-wonderland and scifi spaceships!

castledan: but you get my point right? When we're told biggest castle, it's kinda important that the castle itself is the biggest. That's what we are comparing

Yän: Idk about you lot but that just screams gothic horror to me!

castledan: once you get to the castle and it's smaller it's a let down because the fun of it is the exploration of the castle you get to. So hub like environments then you get to a smaller castle defeats that

Yän: Yeah, I guess if it's all on one map that's fine to me
Jun 24, 2017 11:15:57 GMT -6
Yän: As in Lament of Innocence
Jun 24, 2017 11:16:19 GMT -6
Yän: That was the main reason why it took me so long to finally play that game
Jun 24, 2017 11:16:38 GMT -6
castledan: yeah that's an example of what i don't want. A HATE hubs in castlevania. It kills any cohesive exploration
Jun 24, 2017 11:17:34 GMT -6
castledan: im done with an area...teleport back...into the next area.
Jun 24, 2017 11:17:41 GMT -6
Yän: Right, that's not what I want either
Jun 24, 2017 11:18:21 GMT -6
castledan: well we will find out eventually lol
Jun 24, 2017 11:19:59 GMT -6
Yän: That's right. Not much of a point discussing it now ^^

Enkeria Gin: I request we get 3000 rooms. 1400 of them could be about the extra % glitch "outside".
Jun 24, 2017 11:24:46 GMT -6
Enkeria Gin: Or.. Over 9000 !!!
Jun 24, 2017 11:25:13 GMT -6
Yän: I demand we get a map the size of No Man's Sky's universe all done in 2D Pixel art with 100% original rooms! And better make it quick!
Jun 24, 2017 11:28:27 GMT -6
Yän: I paid a few dollars on this after all so I get to decide!
