Because you wanted it, Konami has consented to make a PC version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

"That's right! Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is coming to PC!" bellowed Lords of Shadow producer Dave Cox on Twitter.

A just-released press release tells us the PC version is being simultaneously developed alongside the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, and all three will be released next year.

"Castlevania: Lords of Shadow successfully rebooted the franchise but now we want to go further and exceed people's expectations on what to expect from the sequel," commented Dave Cox in the press release.

"This new game tells a much broader tale and one that spans centuries. It is a game that pushes whatever format it is on to the absolute limit, and we are delighted that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2's rich blend of first-class fighting, deep exploration and rich storytelling are set to delight and enthral PC users, too.

"There's a darkness coming, and with our new game engine, we hope to deliver something truly special across multiple formats that will set new standards for action adventure games."

Not much is known about Lords of Shadow 2, yet. The game was announced earlier this summer with a fantastic cinematic trailer, and that's about it. Sounds like, from the story synopsis, you'll play as Dracula as and regain your old powers on your quest to rid yourself of your immortal shackles. But plenty will try and stop you.
