New Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 Dev Diary Shows Off Game’s Open World


Open world play isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about the “Castlevania” franchise, but it’s exactly what awaits when “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2” arrives next month.

Konami has a new developer diary video out now examining many aspects of the game’s world, including how the coming of Dracula has brought a Gothic look to both the modern and past environments. Other topics include the compressed single-day timeline for the game’s events, how the city of Madrid influenced the feel of the city, and more on the enemies players will encounter, including that baddest of bad guys, Satan himself.

“Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2” is on the way on February 25 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in North and South America, but you can get five minutes of insight with producer Dave Cox, Konami’s Studio Head of European Production, and MercurySteam Head of Development Enric Alvarez right here:
