You know how Dale North feels about JRPGs? That's kind of how I feel about a good action-adventure -- specifically, the Legacy of Kain franchise. After a fairly lackluster finale with Defiance, and some odd Tomb Raider DLC, it appeared as if the end was nigh for the franchise. But not so, according to a statement made to VG247 from Square-Enix.

Square-Enix community manager George Kelion had this to say about a project set in the same world: "Nosgoth exists and is in active development, but is not a traditional Legacy of Kain action-adventure game. Nosgoth is set in the same universe as previous LoK games, but on a different branch to the Blood Omen and Soul Reaver series. The community should not be thinking of Nosgoth in terms of a single-player experience."

The Legacy of Kain series is one of my favorite franchises of all time, so any sort of return would be great in my book. I remember the exact moment when I really connected with Soul Reaver, solidifying my love of the action-adventure genre alongside of classics like Ocarina of Time and Tomb Raider. Franchise voice actor staple Tony Jay will be missed, and I hope this one does right by the series. The wording above does worry me, in the sense that it may just end up being a mobile game, but if it gets people interested enough in the series again for a proper return, I'm okay with it.

Nosgoth is that free-to-play third-person shooter set in the Legacy of Kain universe. It's also that game that makes us wish there would be a new legit Legacy of Kain game every single time we have to talk about it. Anyway, y...more

First Nosgoth footage full of fun vampire carnage

In-game stuff that isn't menus starts at 4:30. While Chris was bitter about it cashing in on the Legacy of Kain name, he did find Nosgoth a surprisingly enjoyably F2P third-person shooter in his preview. From this footage, I...more

Nosgoth is not a very good Legacy of Kain game

The vampire Kain has been running around causing havoc since 1996, when he debuted in his first game on the original PlayStation. He was joined by his partner in crime and former lieutenant Raziel in 1999, and the rest w...more
