KONAMI today announced the release date for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, currently in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
KONAMI today announced that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be available at retail stores nationwide for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 5, 2010.
Developed by Mercury Steam in collaboration with Kojima Productions, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow re-imagines the series with a tale of love, despair and hope, in a time when the dead walk among the living.
Synopsis: 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.
Over 40 possible combo attacks are at Gabriel’s disposal as he traverses over 50 diverse stages and goes up against over 45 types of enemies. Much like previous games in the series, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow offers a wide range of puzzles to solve that will aid in defeating enemies, open doors or give access to previously unreachable areas.
