New Details Revealed For Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
Although we've already seen several gigantic titles in 2010, don't gloss over the second half of the year. Games like Castlevania: Lords of Shadow should be high on your priority list.
Konami's David Cox has continued to provide updates on the promising action game via his Twitter page, mostly dedicated to the new Castlevania iteration (although he does link us to a new Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker video, too). If you peruse his latest comments, you will learn more about what to expect from the newest vampire-slaying adventure. First of all - and perhaps most important - Cox confirms that the Combat Cross will be the "primary weapon," so those of you expecting an old-school whip to take center-stage might be a touch disappointed. Secondly, he reveals some of the areas we will explore in the game; this includes "Refactory, Clock Tower, and the Library," and all of them should sound familiar to long-time fans. I mean, how can you have a Castlevania without such places? Oh, and let's not forget about the music: this franchise is well known for featuring some of the best soundtracks ever (I still say Symphony of the Night has the best music in history), and Konami shouldn't let us down in this category. Lords of Shadow will not only include new tracks, of course, but it will also boast classic CV tunes "interwoven here and there."
Now, I don't know about you guys, but this is easily one of my most anticipated titles of 2010. I'm not naive enough to expect another 2D CV for the PS3, so I suppose I can be happy with a supremely well done 3D game.
