I was a bit skeptical at first but the more I see, the more I'm starting to think this might actually be a welcome evolution over the last games.

I do too… but if they can keep those core mechanics working while adding more immersion via the RPG elements, then I think that could be win-win.

Right on, if they can keep the basic solid elements and throw in some new features that are equally intriguing, I'm sure I'll be buying the new products! Speaking personally, I am hoping they find that perfect balance.

Five even. I think this one should actually be KB3 though. Armoured Princess to Darkside are more like different expansions to Legends.

This looks quite cool - I like the idea of more open world exploration with tactical battles - KB was a bit cartoony/abstracted in this respect. Guess we'll see

Exactly. Unit types, special abilities, skill trees, magic, core mechanics… Right now most of what they've shown is cut scenes. Usually my least favourite part of any game.

I hope it's not mostly human soldiers. You need some fantastic creatures for a King's Bounty game.
