Castlevania: Lords of Shadow trailer

KONAMI today unveiled an all-new extended trailer for its eagerly awaited Castlevania: Lords of Shadow title. Developed by Madrid-based Mercury Steam in collaboration with KONAMI’s legendary Kojima Productions studio, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a groundbreaking title that mixes stunning combat elements with a fully interactive 3D realm.

The all-new 11-minute long trailer features an in-depth overview of the game with an emphasis on the story, characters, combat, platforming and puzzle mechanics with narration by actor Jason Isaacs.

In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow gamers play as Gabriel Belmont, voiced by Robert Carlyle, the hero of the game and part of the legendary Belmont clan from Castlevania lore. While in-human creatures of the night wreak havoc on the land, the soles of the dead are trapped on Earth and unable to find peace. Gabriel must track down the mysterious Lords of Shadow in order to unite the pieces of a relic called “The God Mask” that can purify the world and has the power to bring the dead back to life. Along Gabriel’s journey gamers will traverse over 50 diverse and beautifully realized 3D stages, come up against over 45 enemies, and defeat huge adversaries in real time with skill, power and timing. In total, the game boasts over 40 possible combo attacks that can be added to Gabriel’s arsenal. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow offers a wide range of puzzles with larger adversaries that require a specific means to exploit weaknesses, or object-related puzzles that will open doors or give access to previously unreachable areas.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be available on October 5 for Xbox360 and PlayStation 3.
