Castlevania: Lords of Shadow trailer

I want it said right here and now that I absolutely love all things Castlevania. I love the liberty IGA took with the Dracula mythos. I love the larger than life characters. I love the mythology, the gothic art style, I love the techno-orchestra-symphony soundtracks that have been a part of the franchise ever since Symphony of the Night. And I love what I see with Lords of Shadow. The graphics are beautiful. I love the music, I love the voice acting, and I love the idea of a man willing to embrace the darkness to bring back his wife. Now, this is all from just a trailer, and a short one at that, but I am very happy with what I see. My prospects for this are very high, especially since Hideo Kojima is reportedly heading this up. About time that he got away from Metal Gear Solid. Granted, I loved what he did with that franchise, but that is all he has been doing since 2000! He needs room to breathe, and MGS3 and MGS4 were almost claustrophobic.
