I hope Mirror of Fate sells poorly.

It makes me sad to know that Lords of Shadow is the highest-selling title in the 20 year history of my favorite franchise, Castlevania. It took one game to destroy everything I love about the series, restoring it with some typical fantasy tropes, reusing the names of characters, and turning it into yet another God of War clone.

Worse yet, my favorite part of the series, that wonderful, blissful soundtrack, was replaced by a Hollywood movie score. This is not Castlevania, and I will never accept it as such no matter how much Konami tries to cram it down our throats. Harmony of Despair was the last good thing they did for the series, and it makes me sad we may never get to see or play the talents of IGA, Yamane, or Kojima ever again. As a fan of the series since the very first game, I would even welcome the older talents or KCEK - responsible for Castlevania 64, Legacy of Darkness, and most of all, Circle of the Moon - to take over the series. I don't want this "reboot" and I never asked for it.

I asked for a series with continuing platforming quality, not QTEs. Those who said it got stale or was too Japanese never played Order of Ecclesia, a game noted for its art style and challenge. Not only that, but I believe OoE was setting the stage for a new turning point in the series. Why Konami never ran with it I will never understand.

I totally feel you on the whole OoE thing. It really did feel like the potential beginning of a new era. A good step towards compromise for classicvania and metriodvania. Castlevania music had a damn near embarrassingly important role in my life and art so yeah, I will be missing the tunes like crazy. Let's have a drink in memory of an old friend, shall we?

K, enjoy not getting another 3DS castlevania. Because if people don't buy this game, Konami ain't making another Castlevania for 3ds.

I played OoE, and it wasn't even hard. Seriously, get that stick out of your butt.

I hope your mom sells poorly.

Stupid, lame jokes aside, godstriker8 is right, if MoF sells poorly, they
won't go back to the original series, they will cancel the series entirely.
Look at dead space for example, they add co-op and take away a lot of the horror.
Everyone hopes it will sell poorly so they will go back to the original series.
Look what happens, the dead space series gets canned because of poor sales.
People who think game franchises will go back to their original form because of poor
sales are complete idiots.
