(Warning: This news post and trailer contain major spoilers for the ending of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow)
The new game in the re-boot of Konami’s legendary Castlevania franchise follows-up from where the ending of the first Lords of Shadow left off.
Departing his dreary castle after a rather extended stay in-hiding, Gabirel Belmont – now reborn as Dracula through an unfortunate sequence of events – finds himself in a modern-day city, attempting to rid himself of his immortality by teaming up with old friend/foe, Zobek, avatar of Death and founder of the Brotherhood of Light.
Another title for the Nintendo 3DS, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, was released earlier this year, detailing the events between the two Lord of Shadows games. It introduced Trevor and Simon Belmont to the re-booted mythology, as well as fan-favourite Alucard.
Ready Up reviewed the original Lords of Shadow back in late 2010, where it was well-received. The trailer for the sequel, due “This Winter” on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox, is embedded below.
