San Diego Comic Con provides way more than just comic and movie goodness, as it always brings good news and announcements for the video game industry as well. Konami has just whipped out (pun intended) a bunch of new screenshots in time for SDCC this year for their upcoming game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Set in today’s modern world, you will get to finally play as Dracula, which is a first in the Castlevania series and ultimately learn the truth with the “shocking conclusion to the Lords of Shadow saga”.
In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Dracula is resurrected once again, weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. He is threatened by Satan, who has returned to bring about the apocalypse and ultimate revenge for his defeat all those centuries ago. Dracula must reacquire his powers of old and make a pact with Death in order to defeat the Devil, and gain his eternal rest.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be available on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC this winter. Check out the screenshots below and if you happen to be at SDCC currently, make sure to swing by Konami’s Comic-Con booth (#3713).
