The final chapter of the Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow saga will be released early next year, as revealed by Konami this morning.
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 will be released on February 28th on Ps3, Xbox 360 and Pc. This is going to be the last Castlevania game developed by Mercury Steam since the team has a strong desire to move on and not become tied to a single, successful franchise.
We still don’t know much about this game, except for some small gameplay details. One of the new weapons to get included in the game is the Blood Whip which won’t work too differently from the previous games: you will be able to combine light and strong attacks to create unique combos. The Magic system will also be changed, with Dracula’s Blood taking its place: you will be able to regenerate Dracula’s Blood by killing enemies and get some high ranks for your combos. A new Focus skill will also be available which should grant some yet to be detailed enhancements for dodging and blocking perfectly.
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 isn’t the only upcoming Castlevania game. The HD version of the portable Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow – Mirror Of Fate will be released on PSN and Xbox Live Marketplace on October 31st.
