Wanted to make similar story of this , but with a twist.
The storyline at first is about an earthquake that managed to merge four different timelines across. Soma Cruz who currently studying in Romania and Alucard who currently handling things in Japan apparently felt that same earthquake in a day , despite being on different faults.
The story itself is split into two ; Soma's storyline in Romania , and Alucard's story in Japan... which serves as the "Julius Mode" of this game.
Soma's storyline features Jonathan Morris , Charlotte Aulin and Shanoa as Soma's allies ... while Mina will also be playable later.
Alucard's story has Julius Belmont , Yoko Belnades , Richter Belmont and Maria Renard as allies.
For Soma mode , you can get two true ending depending on what sidequest you could do... either rebuild your relationship with Mina... or save a certain woman from her loneliness and win her heart. ( Hint : Glyph )
It isn't just that , some character like Soma and Jonathan has nerf in equipment versatility , but on the other hand , they also have buffed . ( e.g Soma can now pick the Critical Art of his choice, a super mode where Soma will take damage for his allies that's on the verge of death, while also having access to all of Dracula's signature spells like Dark Inferno on that mode , Jonathan now can dual wield one-handed weapons and use it at the same time , albeit disables the use of subweapons, getting a various martial arts book to make him do various fighting styles ( from boxing, kung fu , to acrobatic breaker moves ) , Shanoa now has access to new glyph named Lassa , based on Belmont family's whips , new Dual Crushes )
But on the other hand I am completely sold on the idea of having to ward off Death and Orlox even though Death itself can never be truly be removed from this world. Plus to my knowledge Death has only been a final boss in Lament Of Innocence.
However the rating has got be M as most Castlevania games have gotten this rating.
It can be swan song to end to the Sorrow mimiseries just as long as Ayumi Kojima handles the artwork and Michiru Yamane the soundtrack.
I hated Dawn Of Sorrow's shift to anime inspired artwork.
