It's the direct sequel to MercurySteam's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, but this time it's releasing simultaneously for PC as well as on Xbox 360 and PS3.
Lords of Shadow 2 features a "truly open play area," where we get to explore a modern day city heavy in "Gothic legacy". The team have also "thoroughly enhanced" combat.
"So now we come to the conclusion of the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow story,” said producer Dave Cox. “As such, we have gone all-out to create a fitting climax to one of the most warmly-welcomed series resurrections to date. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is bigger, more epic and more challenging – and tells a tale that will live on in video game lore forever.”
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 releases on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 February 25h in the US, 28th in the UK. Later this month Castlevania: Lords of Shadow releases for PC featuring all released DLC.
