E3 2012: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

MercurySteam has the keys to Konami’s famous Castlevania series, and they developer is running with them. It’s coming out with two sequels to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. The first is the console version Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

In the DLC for Lords of Shadow, Gabriel Belmont was turned into a vampire, which puts him at odds with the Belmont clan — you know, the vampire-hunting-and-killing clan. Gabriel finds himself fending off human pursuers whilst preparing for a new threat. In the above trailer, Gabriel destroys a group of human soldiers only to find himself confronted by a white-haired swordsman. Internet speculation tags the swordsman as Alucard, the half-human, half-vampire son of Dracula.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is due sometime in 2013 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
