Konami have released a new batch of screenshots from the forthcoming Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2 focusing on Dracula’s role in the game.
In a press release Konami said ,”Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 concludes the revamped series in epic style. Featuring a sprawling, open-world environment, free-roaming camera, and over 24 hours of action, combat and exploration, the new game picks up where the acclaimed original left off.”
After the dramatic ending to the first Lord of Shadows game that revealed Gabriel to be Dracula, the sequel sets Death and Dracula in an alliance to bring down Satan. As Konami say, “Dracula must reclaim his lost powers of transformation and collate the weaponry needed to dispatch Satan’s hordes. Key adversaries are also displayed for the first time, as is the visible degradation of Dracula when he first arrives in present day, and the gradual resurrection as his powers grow.”
The game is due to be released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on February 27th.
