Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 News

Here's the blood-drenched debut trailer for Netflix's Castlevania season two

Netflix has released the debut trailer for Castlevania season two.

The trailer shows Dracula on his mad quest to rid the earth of humans - and Trevor, Alucard and Sypha bid to stop him.

The second season of Castlevania, which comes out in October 2018, looks as action-packed and gory as you'd want of an animation based on the Konami video game. The first series, which featured four episodes released in 2017, went down well, so it's good to see the story continue and the production values remain reassuringly high.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is out this winter

Trailer shows modern setting, new camera, and a really big robot thing.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be hitting the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC "this winter", according to a new trailer that's just been released by Konami. (It's worth remembering that "this winter" could mean 2014.)

Several Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 details emerge

Several Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 details emerge

Full camera control, turn into mist, set over two timelines.

A slew of new details regarding MercurySteam's highly anticipated Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 have emerged over a pair of previews from OPM UK and OXM UK (via Gaming Everything).

First off, you'll be able to control the camera and teleport around seamless environments ala Koji Igarashi's Castlevania games, suggesting something more akin to a 3D Symphony of the Night. Further drawing comparisons to the PlayStation classic is the ability to turn into mist. You'll also be able to glamour mortals and take control of them.

Lords of Shadow 2 will also be set across two timelines with the bulk of the game set in modern day environments that have been sculpted to resemble the gothic Castlevania aesthetics well all know and love (remember, the "blank of Sorrow" Castlevanias took place in the future, but you'd never know it).

First Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 gameplay image revealed

Who needs anonymous sources to leak info when a game's producer does that on their own? At least that was the case with Konami's David Cox who publicly released an off-screen image showing the first we've seen of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 in-game.

"Is it a picture or is it the game?" Cox tweeted above the following pic. Clearly it's the latter.

The peculiar thing about this is that it's an off-screen image from an official source. If Konami wanted to publicly reveal a shot of Mercury Steam's upcoming action/adventure sequel it would ready a high-res image for distribution, not an oddly angled photo with a bit of glare on the screen.
