Mercury Steam Already Working On Castlevania Sequel
Well, that was quick. Not that we're going to complain.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a solid game and certainly the best 3D incarnation of the legendary franchise. If you're enjoying your time with the game, you'll be happy to know that developer Mercury Steam is already cranking on a sequel. According to Eurogamer, Oscar Araujo (composer for the LoS soundtrack) apparently broke the news on a Spanish radio station. "If you liked the first [game], hope that the second is even more spectacular," he said. We knew Konami had the team working on a new project but we weren't sure what it was; it now appears to be a follow-up to Lords of Shadow, and that's a good thing. Interestingly enough, Araujo said Konami had asked for a more "rough and aggressive" musical score to accompany LoS. It seems they wanted to erase Castlevania's "effeminate image."
Well, we're not sure if CV was ever "effeminate" but we sort of get where the publisher is coming from. Anyway, we'll certainly have to be on the lookout for early news concerning a sequel.
