Castlevania will not be a God of War clone

In talking to 1UP, KONAMI producer Dave Cox said “We wanted to have big enemies and things like that, the scale and the epicness of it all. The comparisons to God of War are, I think, unfounded. When people see the game, play the game, they’ll see that Lords of Shadow is actually a slower-paced affair. There’s more exploration, there’s more freedom for the player to look around levels and find things. Sure, we have cool combat and cool setpieces; you need to have something like that to appeal to gamers today. But we still have those elements that made Castlevania great. We’re not moving that far away. I think when people see the game they’ll go, ‘That’s Castlevania.'”
