The release of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow in 2010 effortlessly showed how a third-person action game set in Konami’s sprawling Castlevania universe could (and should) be handled, so the upcoming release of Lords of Shadow 2 in 2013 from Mercury Steam has quite a lot to live up to, and then build upon, in order to keep franchise fans satiated.

Will it play out in modern times? Will we return to battle the forces of evil as Gabriel? We can’t wait to find out:
