That game has awesome spriteart.
Konami should hire wayforward for a new castlevania and a new contra (again)

Well, they did say Colonial Marines was finally going to show at E3.

WayForward is generally awesome. Always happy to see new stuff from them. Very productive company, too. New games all the time :p

No platforms mentioned and I suppose it won't be a DS (only) game anymore. Perhaps for the downloadable services? 3DS?
It would be cool if it shows up for psn/live. That trailer is so old the game could look like anything by now.

I don't believe this was ever confirmed, and I'm personally less than optimistic.
I meant for this game. Although YOU NEVER KNOW.

We know the sprite animation is amazing, but what do we know about the gameplay? I need to know about the gameplay before I can make some kind of judgement.

Do want. O_O I hope it's a Metroidvania, it's kind of hard to tell from the video posted.
Completely agree. An Alien Metroidvania would make my day. Announcement at E3, perhaps?

For some reason I believed that elephant nosed beige thing was a Space Jockey, but only now I realise it's an alien hatched from one instead.

Wouldn't be surprising if Sega regrets wasting the license just on AvP3.
Well, technically, that was a Vivendi game that Sega picked up the rights to after Axedivision.

I haven't been disappointed with any WayForward title yet, so I'm definitely optimistic about this title. The canceled version looked good, hopefully they're sprucing it up in this new release.

They've got Colonial Marines... maybe... and the Creative Assembly project, which is reportedly huge. I doubt it.

Source? This is literally the first I've heard of it.

The Aliens games have a pretty decent track record as far as sidecrollers go (I loved both the SNES and Genesis versions of Alien 3) and this is WayForward. Looks like fun so far, but the video was kind of vague in a lot of ways.

WayForward and Aliens? Sounds cool.

That Colonial Marines sidescroller looked fun too, at least the sprite art and animation was great looking. Wouldn't mind if this is a retitle of that game.

I'll buy it just for that song during the Colonial Marines trailer Aliens... living inside a human, brilliant. Seriously though it's WayForward and I love them so.

That's a way to awesome idea to ever realistically happen :( (for Castlevania that is)
