After we recorded episode 21 of the TMG Podcast, Migoy and Will check out the first hour of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. The game looks pretty fun. I can't say much about the story at this point but the gameplay feels solid and the game looks great.
Well, it's official. Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2 has been unveiled . The big reveal happened in the latest episode in Game Trailers TV. This amazing CG trailers shows Gabriel Belmont take on a whole army with no sweat until a white-haired character enters the field. Fans of the series, you just might recognize him.
If I have to guess the guy at the end, it's got to be Alucard from past Castlevania games. Am I right?
The Konami's press conference is still scheduled for today, so hopefully we see more about this game.
It is rumored that Konami is set to reveal a sequel to Castlevania: Lord of Shadows on May 31. A teaser website is up with a URL titled "TheDragonReturns", and a door with some sort of Gothic look with the 31.05.12 date above it. If this rumor comes out true, Konami just gave a sequel to a Castlevania game that is not really Castlevania.
Some people looked inside the coding of the site and found interesting codes named "CLOS teaser". A Lord of Shadows sequel is definitely possible. Konami's pre- E3 conference is also scheduled on the same day placed on the teaser, so were definitely getting a reveal of a new game at the end of the month.
It is also rumored that this game will be released for the Wii - U and possibly for the PS Vita.
I played Castlevania: Lord of Shadows from start to finish, and yes I did enjoy it. But it's not Castlevania at all - Just a God of War-like game with Castlevania placed in front of the title screen. I'd pick the old school Castlevania 2D platform style any day and I'm sure hardcore fans of the series would also agree. Does anybody even want a sequel to Lords of Shadows?
We'll soon find out next week. Stay tuned.
