Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
was (for real) revealed this week, as was its heroine, a member of the Dracula-hunting (in the absence of a Belmont) sect from which the game gets its title. She seems like a pretty good protagonist, with her imposing boots and ability to equip three attacks at a time, but she is no Belmont. She may kill vampires, but she doesn't have Vampire Killer.
Are you at all disappointed when a Castlevania
game features a non-Belmont? Or did Symphony of the Night
convince you that switching up the formula is worth the lack of familiarity? Does it still feel like Castlevania
if you're not some musclebound dude with a whip?
