Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 coming February

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 - 02

Konami has announced that vamp-’em-up Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be hitting the UK on 28 February. And no, I’m not going to spoil the first game.

I will, however, say that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 takes place after the close of the first game, and takes place in an open city that can be freely explored. It also features an “all-new fully moveable camera”, and if you’re actually listing that as a feature you know the first game’s camera had some problems.

Also, much as I’m not going to spoil the first game, the screenshots below probably will. Nature of the beast, I’m afraid.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is, to reiterate, due out on 28 February. If you don’t want massive spoilers then fear not – the first game will hit PC on 27 August. That’s next week, in case you’re date-impaired.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
