If you love it, change it: Castlevania.


This is more of stuff that could help to any kind of Castlevania game, more rather, to help to create the story of it.

Story and Timeline:

I don't know you, but I think the Castlevania franchise can actually have a great story. There are a couple that had the "OH SNAP!" moments in the games, like Lament of Innocence or in Aria of Sorrow. The games have the potential to have a good story, or to create new ones, like how did Dracula get some many minions and other demons that are even more powerful than him. The story that many fans are waiting for is the Demon Wars in 1999 when Julius Belmont sealed the castle in a eclipse. There could also be a Castlevania where the main character is Dracula himself, where he has to defeat other monsters to take them as minions.

And the timeline..the timeline is really F'd up. Many games are out of the timeline like Castlevania Legends and Circle of the Moon. There are two reasons why the timeline is so awkward and why it should be changed; One, is that the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker is on the timeline, all dandy right? No. Because of this, there is a huge hole, like for example that John, the son of Quincey Morris, witnessed when his father died. That can't be, because if all the time is correct, John would only have 2 years in that moment. There are other many other holes in the timeline and it wouldn't hurt to change it again. For more information about this topic, go to the best Castlevania fan page, Castlevania Dungeon, here.

Final comment:

Wow, it feels kinda weird to criticize so much the franchise I love, now I can see why Rev. Anthony did this. It was fun to do this and even though I know most of this changes won't occur, but I still have hope on the Castlevania team.

Leave any comment, thoughts or criticism. Did you like the ideas? Why not? I hope you enjoyed reading this.
