Usually, Dracula is the bad guy in any book, movie or video game in which he appears. But when there’s an even greater evil out there, Dracula can look like a hero—and there’s no bigger evil than Satan.
“Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2″ sees Dracula transported to modern times and making a deal with Death to defeat Satan. To do so, he’s got to work his way back from a powerless state, rediscovering the methods to morph into other forms and finding the weaponry he needs to take down the Lord of Chaos and earn his permanent rest.
Konami recently unveiled new screenshots and concept art from the game, which picks up where 2010’s “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow” left off. The company is promising over 20 hours of gameplay in an open world complete with free-roaming cameras.
The game is set to hit PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on February 25 (PC gamers had to wait almost three years for its predecessor to make its way there!), and after that, dare we hope for an eighth-gen take on the enduring series?
Check out all of the new images while you ponder that. And don’t be afraid of Dracula. He’s the good guy this time.
