The lights are on
Did Konami's latest 3D entry in the Castlevania series swoop under your radar? Whatever the case, the game contains two of the most compelling twists in gaming, and you shouldn't miss them whether you're too lazy to play it or just procrastinating. Because we at Game Informer care so much about showing you cool things, we're here to completely spoil the ending of this awesome game for you.
If you've already seen the ending and want to skip straight to the discussion between Andrew Reiner and I, start watching at 8:58.

That's awesome. This may not be the first time you'll play as a Vampire in a Castlevania game (a la Alucard), but it definitely will be the first time you play in contemporary times. I know Dawn of Sorrow was supposed to be present, but who cares since it was just another palette swap of Symphony?
LoS was amazing. Anyone who claims it's not very Castlevania-like is so frickin' wrong. Clearly, these people only have a passing knowledge of the series, and are most likely thinking it's not like the Metroid-vania entries in the series. To me, LoS is a PERFECT 3D re-imagining of what Super Castlevania IV would've been, had it been made now. So much of LoS is all about re-imagining the core of those classic Castlevania games; even the between-chapters transitions where you see a Belmont walking in front of a map screen is there!
I'm excited as heck to see where LoS 2 goes from here. I'd love to be able to play as Zobek, Dracula AND as a new Belmont (a la Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse multiple playable characters) myself. And seeing some Hellgate-esque environments would be awesome. Hoping that WASN'T New York though; considering the epic journey in LoS1, I can't imagine many epic areas surrounding New York they could travel to. I mean, where would they go - Pennsylvania? Feh.
Go pick a modern European city. MecurySteam IS Spanish after all, and places like London mix more modern architecture with much older structures. Since Castlevania is part of that classic, European Dracula mythology, this sequel HAS to be set in a European town, no?
Meh. Just seems like any other lame castlevania ending. This is coming form a guy who loves the series. But the endings are usually weird. So this isn't a huge shocker. I was expecting better from the way it was hyped up. And why would we be playing as dracula/gabriel? The castlevania games rarely revisit the same protagonist twice. You guys don't seem to have much experience with the series.
pretty epic stuff
I need more Spoiled! in my life. Maybe do one for all the endings of Heavy Rain? Ha! Or, how about Mass Effect 2? Mega Man 10? Donkey Kong Country Returns? OK. Done.
You essentially were Dracula in Legacy of Kain, so I'm not too amped up to play as a vampire as you two apparently are. Castelvania has essentially run it's course for me.
Um, hello Sean Connery.And no one reacted to a guy just vanishing in the middle of the street? I haven't ever played a Castlevania game, but this looks interesting. Not sure about being Dracula. I feel like Vampires (and zombies) are so outplayed right now.
Tried to watch this based upon Tim's recent Castlevania shenanigans - already sent a message on Twitter to Ben to see if these old videos could be put on Youtube - way too choppy to watch. Audio is fine, visual skips every few to several seconds to a new frame where the audio is...no bueno. Glad you guys updated the video player and hired some video guys!
It won't load for me :(
It was an awesome ending... I really want to play the next one.
