Well, it sounds really cool. Hopefully they can deliver this time. I just feel like they've made that "We're bringing new monsters to the table" argument before, and it seems like we just get the usuals, with nothing but cameos for the new faces.
I like the idea of there being continuity with the other series as well. I know some of the characters were less than stellar, but I personally think it would be cool to recognize some of the other series in the same universe.
