Konami Releases Beta Gameplay Footage of Famed Hero Simon Belmont from Castlevania Franchise |

A Konami press release today showed a couple of high definition photos and video of the upcoming game Castlevania game. On a side note, make sure to keep it lock as we will be attending the San Diego Comic-Con covering all of the game industry booths and games that will be present there! Konami will host a special autograph signing by Hideo Kojima, as well as Yoji Shinkawa on Thursday, July 21. They will also hold a Costume contest with yours truly participating. You have to wait and see what I am bringing to the table! Peace!

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today released a clip of original gameplay footage of iconic vampire hunter character, Simon Belmont from the Castlevania franchise. The new video shows the early design of a young Simon Belmont in action entering Dracula’s castle to exterminate attacking ghouls during an early conceptual phase of Castlevania:Lords of Shadow, in which the character was considered to be a part of the game. Unknown to fans, this early concept video was never released as the lead character in the game eventually became Gabriel Belmont, a new protagonist that made his debut in Castlevania:Lords of Shadow.

Castlevania fans and gamers can view the new footage on the official Castlevania Facebook page Earlier this month, the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow swept the gaming industry awards at the Gamelab Conference in Barcelona, earning 8 honors including ‘Best Game’.



  1. Simon Belmont is the most famous protagonist from the Castlevania franchise so it would make sense. He was on “Captain N” after all.

  2. At first I thought they were offering a Simon Belmont downloadable costume on facebook for the game, but they’re not.
