PlayStation 3 Is The Lead Platform For New Castlevania
Hmm...not long after that inferior Bayonetta port, we look down the road towards another hotly anticipated action title but this time, the PlayStation 3 is the lead platform.
Although the Xbox 360 version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow won't be a port (like the PS3 version of Bayonetta), Kojima Productions producer David Cox updated his Twitter page with the fact that Lords of Shadow is being developed with Sony's machine as the lead console. One other detail he provided is the fact that the camera will be fixed; you won't have manual control over it. This shouldn't really concern you, though, as certain blockbuster franchises like God of War always have a fixed camera. This isn't exactly surprising as it seems the fabled Castlevania franchise is definitely taking a cue from GoW...but then again, who isn't these days? We have high hopes for this latest project from Kojima Productions, primarily because it's being created by Kojima Productions. Seriously, how bad could it be? And did you hear about the excellent voice cast? All early footage and media is quite impressive and we certainly expect to have more info on this one over the next few months.
We'll also let you know when we get an estimated release window. All we know is that it's supposed to come out some time later this year.
