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 probbly 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.
