New Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia Details

By Jorge Ba-oh 28.05.2008 2

The latest edition of Nintendo Power has some new details from the upcoming DS Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.

  • The game's plot takes place in the mid 1800s, when Belmont goes missing. People had been unsuccessful at taking on Dracula until the Order of Ecclesia formed.
  • Shanoa, the game's protagonist, has been reconfirmed as the female lead can use Glyphs as the source of her power. These glyphs can take the form of different objects, e.g. turn into a sword found natively in environments, or when enemies drop them.
  • MP usage with glyphs, restores when not attacking.
  • More than 20 locales in the game, side quests given by rescued villages available in the menu.
  • No returning characters from past games aside from Dracula.
  • Levelling-up, dodging (using shoulder buttons), select button switches status screens.
  • For expert players there'll be a harder difficulty setting.
  • Wi-Fi: New item interface: you can have your own shop, vs. competition considers items used and damaged received to determine winner.

    Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia is due for release later this year.

    Thanks to Nintendo Everything for the tip.

    Looking good. Hopefully it explains something about the missing link between Richter and Julius, not sure who this missing Belmont is meant to be.

    EDIT: Never mind, it\'s supposed to be Richter who goes missing.

    I want Soma Cruz to be in the game but he's one of the future characters. They can at least put Alucard in.
