Konami Officially Confirms Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2

Rumors are encouraging but official news is just so much better. I mean, when it comes to clear-cut confirmation.

It was a popular action game that received high marks from critics around the world and so, Mercury Steam has been hard at work on a follow-up: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 has been revealed by Konami.

They didn't offer much in the way of information besides this fantastically filmed three-minute teaser, but we can probably expect a challenging, beautifully drawn and designed adventure. We also know this highly anticipated sequel will be headed to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as one might expect. This is an example of how music alone can set the tone; we don't necessarily need voice acting or even special effect to engage us.

Fantastic! I loved the first LoS. I can't wait to play this one and the 3DS game as well.

Thank god Konami found Mercury Steam. At least Castlevania doesn't look like its going to suffer the fate that Silent Hill is.

I saw this a few days ago and was blasted away. I really liked LoS but I didn't love it, I think it really needs the old Gothic flavor and the style of music from Symphony of the Night to finish the feel. Also the combat needs more impact and I hope they deliver on that.

I reallllly hope that's Alucard there at the end to challenge his pops :)

The new people in charge(MercurySteam) called that music ''gay'' so don't expect the old music direction to return T_T

I wonder if Kojima productions is also going to be involved in this sequel too?

Hope so.

Trailer was just amazing.

Absolutely adored Lords of Shadow, I'm so attached to Gabriel and his situation, wow.

*********SPOILERS**********

As for the unknown warrior in the end, It wouldn't make sense if it was Alucard, because:

Trevor Belmont is confirmed for the 3DS game, he is human. Unless he gets turned into a vampire and will change his name to Alucard... doubt it...

Also, he is son of Gabriel who was kept in secret by Pan and the Brotherhood, as a last resort because they were aware of Gabriel's true fate.

So my biggest guess is that the warrior is Hector because he has similar looking gauntlet/glove on his hand, similar attire and is also a swordsman. Another pointer is that mechanical titan. Hector was a Demon Forgemaster and could summon various demonic entities and constructs.

But that's just my speculation.

I don't understand how your points make it not Alucard for sure? I mean you are probably right because they would never give fans what they want but what does the 3DS and Trevor have to do with it?

(Bear in mind I only have a cursory knowledge of the family lineage)

I'm sure I'm on the same level in terms of knowledge, but I picked up this info while I was researching on the Castlevania wiki.

I picked it up on Monday and have been enjoying it thus far. Nothing will ever compare to SOTN though.

sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cant wait for this!
i hope they add a bit more enemy variety to this though.
got really boring fighting the same enemies over and over again!
story needs some work too, i loved the narration from the old british guy that was spectacular!
but the story itself, well, was as entertaining and gripping as watching paint dry!
