Remember how weird and great the Legacy of Kain was? New evidence has surfaced hinting of a new game for the series. Hooray!
I really enjoyed the Legacy of Kain series. So I’m pleased to see new information has surfaced hinting at the return of our favourite emo-vampire protagonist. I find it bizarre that there hasn’t been a new game for Kain this entire generation.
First, Joystiq has reported Square Enix registering the domain for both Wolfenstein *shudder* and Legacy of Kain (note: I love Wolfenstein, but they should probably stop toying with that license). Kain’s registered site is ‘WarForNosgoth.com‘ in relation to the series’ dream-like world, Nosgoth.
The second hint is newly discovered artwork by OXM from illustrator Richard Buxton, his portfolio containing artwork entitled “Legacy of Kain videogame animation pitch (the displayed image above). OXM added analysis of the artwork: “Notice the teeth, claws, vaguely medieval/fantastical setting and emphasis on combat. The image is unlabelled, and when I called Buxton for comment just now, he told me only: “I’m not allowed to talk about that.”"
As excited I am for a new Legacy of Kain, I’m keeping a cautious stance on a new Kain game. It was this time last year we reported on a potential reboot of the series. Hopefully we can count on both of these hints are leading to a feasible release?
