All good things must come to an end, especially game series’, or in this case a series that is a reboot of a series. However, you usually expect to see at least a trilogy when a developer creates story-driven games these days. as it turns out, Lords of Shadow 2 will be the final Castlevania game to bear the subtitle.
Konami’s official LoS2 site has some story details regarding the game, and one sentence in particular stands out.
In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the origin of Dracula and his legendary connection with the Belmonts was revealed. In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, fans can expect thrilling new twists and challenges. In this shocking conclusion to the Lords of Shadow saga, Dracula returns once again, weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. Facing a new and powerful threat, the vampire lord must reacquire his old powers – and only his castle holds the key. However, the famed Belmont clan also seek his ultimate destruction.
That’s right, folks. Whether or not you enjoy Konami and Mercury Steam’s new take on the franchise, it’ll all be coming to an end when this game releases. That means you can expect some climactic battles and incredibly (melo)dramatic moments. I’m getting shivers just thinking about it.
Stay tuned for more details on Lords of Shadow 2 as E3 draws closer.
