The latest Castlevania game, Lords of Shadow, wasn't originally intended to be a Castlevania game. And this trailer shows it.
Were it not for the cross at the start you'd be hard-pressed seeing how this relates to Konami's treasured series. Which is probably the point! As someone who never got into Castlevania growing up - but who did like Pan's Labyrinth, which this somehow reminds me of - I'm digging the direction this reboot is taking.
