Impressions: A "return to the roots" for castlevania. Gone are simplified anime designs that plagued the latter era metroidvania games, gone are androgynous bishonens and plotholes. Its back to the style and design known from Super Castlevania IV. and iI for one am happy about it and cant wait to buy this. Anyone else feel like that?
