Two names, 悪魔城ドラキュラ 闇の呪印 and 悪魔城ドラキュラ 蒼月の十字架 have been deposed by Konami at the end of january.

Speculations are they could be the japanese names of the next Castlevanias (DS and PS2) we've already been showed. If this was true, then the "from now, there is no akumaj˘ Dracula in Japan, it's all about キャッスルヴァニア" rule would be forgotten and everything would be back to normal. It was a stupid change to begin with.
闇の呪印 could very well be "Curse of Darkness".

And I just noticed they finally fropped that silly "every game must have a music name in the title". I would have played "Castlevania : Lambada of Doom", though.





So really what's the difference between a metrosexual and a homosexual?
Metrosexuals are better dressed. Homosexuals are so last season.
What role will the homosexual play in the future?
Gooseberry.

Hooray, I hope! Castlevania is, after all these years, still so much more dumb than Akumajou, especially considering -vania just ment "woods" or something like that. That name always gave me the feeling I was being talked down to like a little kid by Konami USA ("it's like Transylvania, you'll like it!"). It sounds bad in Japanese, to boot.

Maybe it's just that that Demon Castle Dracula isn't a good English translation of the title Akumajou Dracula, in terms of form -- but I personally prefer the Western title (Castlevania) to the translated Japanese-to-English title (Demon Castle Dracula). Castlevania, to me, just sounds classier.

But eh -- this name change doesn't concern my region.

OMG KONAMI IS DOING THINGS RIGHT.

Nothing against the "Castlevania" name, but I'd rather see japanese versions called "Akumajou Dracula" + some neat subititle.

But that's just me.

Meanwhile, Demon Castle doesn't sound that great, but maybe something along the lines of "Castle Dracula" or something, anything but 2nd grader play our games plz titles will do.

I liked Lamment of Innocence, really.
It's as not as Devil May Cry as I thought it would be and the story works, as Leon does.

I don't see anything wrong with it.
(Yes, I'm a sucker for Castlevania. The only ones I can't bear to play are de N64 ones.)
