Pat and Nathan are buried under a pile of interviews somewhere in Los Angeles, so we will not be bringing you a live blog from the Komani event this evening.

That doesn’t mean you won’t get the news though as Steph, Johnny and Joe are watching the conference and are ready to pounce on anything juicy that gets announced.

Konami are expected to reveal a new Silent Hill tonight, and of course there will probably be more details on Metal Gear Rising, PES 11, Castlevania and there may even be some news on pink panties featuring Snake sneaking out the backside.

One can dream.

Whatever happens -  we are here to bring you the news.

    I hope this Castlevania isn’t multiplayer-only. :S

    Yeah, it doesn’t look “amazing”. When I first saw the screenshots, I thought they looked a bit crap.

    They sure know how to make a trailer!

    (perhaps this is Kojima’s influence).

    The majority of that was in-game.

    Why is this called a Castlevania again?

    #156 5 years ago
  157. Erthazus


    1) Nintendo
    2) EA
    3) Sony


    4) Microsoft
    5) Ubisoft
    6) Konami

    #157 5 years ago
  158. Gekidami

    It looked like it had vampires. Castlevania is about vampires, right?

    #158 5 years ago
  159. DaMan

    Konami was the lamest one, yeah.

    #159 5 years ago
  160. Phoenixblight

    Looks interesting, I think I will wait to see what the consensus for the game will be. Kojima is not working on it he is just the executive producer like he is in the Rising Development, which could mean anything.

    #160 5 years ago
  161. Gekidami

    It means that his name has just been stapled to the folder.

    #161 5 years ago
  162. Erthazus

    @Gekidami, Castlevania is about classsic horror monster including vampires, zombies and all 60′s,70′s monsters from movies.

    #162 5 years ago
  163. zoopdeloop

    It doesn’t feel like one though…plus the story doesn’t match.Twilight is about vampires too but it has nothing to do with Castlevania :P

    #163 5 years ago
  164. DaMan

    the artsyle ruins it, srsly. Castle of Persia.

    the protagonist in particular.

    #164 5 years ago
  165. onlineatron

    1) Nintendo – Zelda, Kirby, 3DS, Kid Icurus.

    2) Sony – Portal 2, inFamous 2, Killzone 3, Kevin Butler, Sorcery.

    3) Ubisoft – Ghost Recon, Driver, RAYMAN!, Dust, AC:B.

    4) EA – Need for Speed, Crysis, Bulletstorm

    5) Microsoft – Gears 3, Fable III, Your Shape (showed tech well).

    HOWEVER… Konami elevated to an ethereal plain above the first position… SPEECH IMPEDED, GAY, JAPANESE DANCER FTW!
