Konami shows off early design of young Simon Belmont

What's this? Here's some old stuff that Konami was kind enough to share. Castlevania fans will likely enjoy this newly released video that shows an early design of a young Simon Belmont in action.

Yeah, that's Simon. You'll see that Simon is entering Dracula's castle in an early concept for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. He was considered to be a part of the game.  Gabriel Belmont, a new protagonist, later made his debut in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, though.

Be patient with this video on the official Facebook page for the game. It takes over a minute to actually see his face. You don't really get a good shot until near the end of the video.

What do you think? Is he Simon-y enough for you?
