Hello everyone! I was redirected to this forums from the CvF Discord.
I used to have a barely used account on the old CvF forums (I had to abandon it because I didn't realize that I used my real life name.)
I was one who posted a very basic edit for a Lady Gunner sprite.
In the Castlevania Dungeon forums, I started a post asking if anybody knew what happened to CvF, and I was happy when I was replied with info that the project was revived, since it's one of my favourite fangames of all time.
So I wanted to return to what I originally made my old account, to support the project.
But besides supporting the game, I also have some ideas that I was going to share in the old forums:
Legion boss: In the franchise, there's two Legions, Saint and Corpse. Something that I thought of was to introduce both of them into the game with a twist. Saint would be the classic Legion, that once the shells of corpses are destroyed, it would reveal the core that releases flames and shoots lasers. But Corpse would consist of two entities, the ball of bones that you fight in HoD, that when defeated reveals a beating heart, and after a few seconds, the heart transforms into Nuculais, starting the second phase of the fight.
Playable Laura: If my memory serves me well, there used to be two forums of CvF, a really old one, and a more recent one.
In the way older forums, there used to be a user that was working on a playable Laura, but it seems every form of contact was lost with him.
My idea for a playable Laura would be to make her the fastest character in the game. She would attack with a flurry of punches and kicks.
Her main advantage would be fast and hard hitting hits, and her main disadvantage would be her weak range. I imagine for ranged attacks her punches would be imbued with spiritual energy or something similar.
(An edit that I did of Maria's battle stance, mixed with some bits of Laura's)
Expanded Christopher Moveset: I don't remember where I read this, but I read that Dracula's and Belmont's powers are similar or can be influenced be each other. So I had this idea that Christopher could have an unique set of powers based on the Castle's from Belmont's Revenge and he would have similar powers to that of Juste's. For example, the Cloud Castle moveset would allow him to wield the Cross, he would be able to attach his whip into the ceiling and hang from it to launch sub weapons. Rock Castle moveset would make him wield the Axe, he would be slow, but resistant and heavy hitter, and he would be able to launch his trademark fireballs.
The Ultimate Challenge: Probably my most dumb idea, but in the chat that Dracula has before he starts fighting the player, he would offer to face the "Ultimate Challenge". If the player says yes, then he would fight every incarnation of Dracula that there has been in the franchise. Some of them would be mixed due to similarites, for example: PoR Death fusion would be expanded with CoD's Dracula moveset, Vampire Killer's Dracula Portrait would be mixed with Haunted Castle ghost head. The goal of this challenge is to defeat all forms as fast as possible, if the player accepts the challenge, then a timer would start allowing to make the player keep track of the time passed.
4 Player Co-op?: This one is very simple, I have seen Mugen games that allow 4 players playing simultaneously, so I thought about allowing the player to bring 3 friends with them to defeat the forces of darkness.
Those were my ideas, thanks for your time! Once again, I'm really happy that this project is alive once more, one of my favourite fan games of all time and I want to support it the best I can.
Not sure if this is going to get posted in the correct section, since the name of it doesn't currently appear at the moment I'm writting this.
