The dastardly Toymaker returns in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 with twisted tricks and cruel inventions

Written by: / / No Comments

Castlevania fans may have already fought against this dastardly genius in the previously handheld-exclusive Mirror of Fate, but The Toymaker makes a grand return to Konami’s gothic action universe this month in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 with new tricks up his sleeves and fresh inventions for Dracula to defeat.


Konami and developer Mercury Steam have taken the opportunity today to highlight The Toymaker in a blast of impressive renders, concept art and screenshots showcasing the character’s creation process from beginning to end, with a very healthy gameplay video to reveal how your confrontation with this devious foe will go down.

The first minute and a half is safe to watch to avoid spoilers and see an entertaining performance, but if you intend playing Lords of Shadow 2 at the end of the month I would recommend you stop there lest you see the entire fight sequence ruined for you (Note: This is b-roll footage from the game so there is no music to accompany the action):
