I really like Lords of Shadow, this looks promising!
Definitely looking awesome thus far. Hope it continues on the tradition of terrific Castlevania games on Nintendo handhelds.
wow, looks really sharp. I'm pumped for sure
I really liked Lords of Shadow and the E3 trailer for Lords of Shadow 2 was amazing. But, I still unsure of this portable's quality.
already on my BUY list this year!!!
I loves me some Castlevania! So glad to see something look so good on the 3DS! I'm definitely keeping my eye on this!
This game has too many colons in the title.
I'm sure the game will be just what the fans clamor for.
Nintendo really loves their pixelation when it comes to their handhelds.
Title seems a bit lengthy to me... game looks quite good though.
