Castlevania Shock!

Good day boys & girls! Many of you out there by now have picked up the newest Castlevania from Konami entitled Lords of Shadow. The game arrived with minimal fan fare but has gone on to sell well at retailers. This reboot of the franchise has once again attempted to go away from classic Castlevania staples for a unique perspective on the legendary franchise. For me having just finished the game the real shocking part of this game occurs after the credits roll. Without giving it away, a scenario between two of the characters in the game occurs that this reaper found to be jaw dropping.

Now inevitably this scene was to set up a sequel to this game. Which is fine by me because it was a great game but I could not have foreseen what was shown in that quick 2-4 minute occurrence. For anyone who played and beat this game you know exactly what I mean and for those who haven’t, I ask why have you not played Castlevania LOS? This is surely the start of a new incredible franchise for Castlevania fans and with an already terrific story I am honestly geeked for the sequel. But I do have my reservations as I am hoping that the last scene will be explained at the beginning of the game. So until then, we can only imagine what the future may hold for this great franchise!

    It’s true, I am a newbie to the series. I did think that this was a complete reboot of the series and thus I felt it didn’t tie in perhaps to previous titles in the series. Well maybe I need to do some research and if you can expand on your comment and maybe fill me in more it would be much appreciated!

    You obviously are new to the Castlevania series. Otherwise you would not have been so surprised to this ending. It takes a little investigating but if you checked Gabriel’s in game bio you would know that he is not a real Belmont.

    Without spoiling the ending here, I will only say that the ending really reflected upon the rest of the game’s emotional feel. I am really excited to see how the sequel plays out but I don’t think there needs to be much explanation.
