Castlevania: LOS sequel confirmed

Konami will be cross.

There's going to be a sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and Spanish developer MercurySteam has apparently already begun work on it.

Oscar Araujo, composer of the game's soundtrack, jovially broke the news to Spanish radio. He said, "If you liked the first [game], hope that the second is even more spectacular," Eurogamer Spain reported.

It was common knowledge that Konami had developer MercurySteam at work on a new game, but until now only speculation pointed to a Castlevania sequel.

Araujo went on to say that Konami had asked for a "rough" and "aggressive" score to contrast with the series' "effeminate" old image.

Konami has offered Eurogamer "no comment" on the news.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was released here last week. The game managed high scores - 8/10 here on Eurogamer - and went on to place sixth in the UK all-formats chart.
