Update: Konami has confirmed to Eurogamer that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be released on 8th October in the UK.
Original story: Fancy-pants Castlevania action game Lords of Shadow has been given a 5th October release date. That's a Tuesday, which means that's a US date.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow catapults the licence into sumptuous 3D. You're hero Gabriel Belmont, who must plunge into a monster filled world to rescue his wife from limbo. Interestingly, Hideo Kojima - he of Metal Gear Solid renown - has had an overseer role on the game.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be playable at the Eurogamer Expo this year, which takes place on 1st to 3rd October at Earl's Court in London. Tickets are Ł8. If you dress up, I'll kiss you.
