Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was a solid game that I never got around to finishing. A trailer for the sequel, currently known as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 was shown this weekend at the VGA’s and looks to bring a certain vampire named Dracula to modern times. Is the 21st century ready for vampires and such? More than likely not, since these vampires aren’t quite as dainty as the vampires we’ve come to know as of late.
I went ahead ready up on the plot of C:LoS so as to be prepared for this game because 1.) I’ll probably never boot up my PS3 again and 2.) hi-def, modern Castlevania makes me feel really good inside like the way I feel after drinking four beers but right before the fifth. Even though it’s a game with a serious theme, I’m hoping they throw in some of those “old guy wakes up in the future” tropes that we’ve all grown to love over the years. I’ll be curious how many times Dracula will say, “What is this sorcery?” when he runs into everyday objects like automatic doors, computers and those robot dogs that are all the rage in Japan.
Also, it’s worth noting that if you are at all interested in LoS2 and care about spoilers from the first game, that you better steer clear of these trailers:
