Reboot Could Make Soul Reaver Rise From the GraveS

For a while there, it certainly seemed like consoles and PCs were rife with video game vampires and vampire slayers, didn't it? And the Legacy of Kain series in particular stood head and shoulders above the rest.

Released on PS1/PC, Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain won praise for its deep, sophisticated storyline, which introduced the vicious titular vampire and his quest for vengeance against the people who killed him. Two Soul Reaver games followed, starring a wraith called Raziel who wanted to kill Kain for siring him and then killing him. Of course. It was all very angsty, bloody and fondly remembered.

Those memories may be getting a modern-day resurrection, according to VG247. Citing "anorexic" sources, the website's reporting that dev studio Crystal Dynamics is working on an all-new iteration of its nocturnal action property. It's not clear if this will be a reboot like Tomb Raider's getting with a new version of those Kain or Raziel characters or something entirely different. The report loosely speculates on that a reveal might happen this year.
