Kojima's DS game touts vampirism and meteorology


If you spend a good deal of your time watching classic Dracula movies or, uh, the Weather Channel, you would no doubt be interested in Hideo Kojima's new DS game, Lunar Knights. Featuring loads of snarling vampires and weather effects, Gamespot notes that the game follows the adventures of two warriors looking to spill the blood of some blood-suckers. The stylus is used for plenty of actions in the game, just as you'd expect, but the interesting part comes in with the use of the DS' top screen. As your characters traverse the bottom screen, the weather above them (so to speak) will change and affect their abilities to successfully fend off the vampires plaguing the planet. If the thought of umbrella-wielding heroes slaying in the rain doesn't appeal to you, you are most likely dead inside.

1. I can't imagine slaying vampires. Flying is about the only good use an umbrella has. Of course you have to have the most steady nerves. Even in stories, only Mary Poppins can fly an umbrella. I'd like to see Harry Potter try flying one of those things.
Vampires don't like that doppler radar thing for some reason though.

2. Art work looks very nice, but I wonder if it's a sequal or prequal to Boktai. Because that looks like Django to me, holding two Gun Del Sol's.

3. From what I've read, those two aren't Django and Sabata, the main characters of Boktai. But instead, their descendents, Aaron and Lucian, respectively.

And it looks like the full title is Lunar Knights: Vampire Hunters.

4. Throw on some stealth and it's a winner.

Now, if only he would make MGS DS... Or at least better remakes of MG 1 & 2, and Ghost Babel.
