Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Confirmed for PC

Today, Konami has announced that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be coming to PC, alongside the PS3 and Xbox 360 releases.

Mercury Steam is simultaneously developing all three builds, so I think it could be safely assumed that they’re aiming to release them all on the same date, or at least very close. In addition to this, they’ll be using their new in-house engine, Mercury Engine 2, to make the sequel even better looking than the first, and the environments even larger.

As it stands, LoS2 promises to up the ante in as many aspects as possible.

Whereas the first game detailed the origin of Dracula and his legendary connection with the Belmonts, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 acts as a shocking finale to the Lords of Shadow saga. Dracula returns once again, weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. Facing a new and powerful threat, the vampire lord must amass his old powers – and his castle is central to regaining his abilities.

“Castlevania: Lords of Shadow successfully rebooted the franchise but now we want to go further and exceed people’s expectations on what to expect from the sequel,” said Dave Cox, Producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Head of Product Planning and Development for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “This new game tells a much broader tale and one that spans centuries. It is a game that pushes whatever format it is on to the absolute limit, and we are delighted that its rich blend of first-class fighting, deep exploration and rich storytelling are set to delight and enthrall PC users, too. There’s a darkness coming and with our new game engine, we hope to deliver something truly special across multiple formats that will set new standards for action adventure games.”

There’s no firm release date at this time, but we’ll be seeing it sometime in 2013. Until then, keep your stakes sharp and your garlic close.

Bryan Todd [aka DieselBT] -- This is where I'm supposed to say something clever about myself. Let's pretend I did, and it conveniently mentions all of my top interests, such as anime, video games, crazy gadgets, electronic music, voice acting, sound editing, and countless other ridiculously fascinating topics. I also like to write stuff about things, which is why I'm here.

...That, and I like your shirt.
