Castlevania DS: Art Style of Ugliness


Remember when Nintendo Power teased us with promises of a new Castlevania title for Nintendo's dual screened juggernaut? You were excited, weren't you? You maybe even clapped your hands together, quietly, at the thought. Now that it's here, we want to go back to that more innocent time, before Ayami Kojima's gothic, androgynous artwork that has come to define the Castlevania franchise was substituted with leftover character design from [fill in preferred Saturday morning anime series here].

Alright, so we don't like it, but what about you dear reader?

The new Castlevania art style...
Makes me sick in my mouth ...
I like balloons!
