Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s Trailer Will Indeed Melt Your Face
Konami’s now annual pre-E3 presser – all the cool kids are doing it these days – brought with it…Christ, how do I not fanboy all over this post? Basically, they dropped one of the greatest trailers I’ve ever glued my eyes to for Lords of Shadow 2.
Not just one of the “greatest video game trailers” I’ve seen. No, no, sir. I had more than shivers dancing up my spine; I had butterflies colliding into each other inside my stomach. The chord it strikes, the atmosphere it brings, the pained, melodic notes slowly swaying in the background…
It’s all so…oh, hell, man. Just watch it here. Once your mind is blown to shreds, you try to keep a coherent string of thoughts.
Billed as the absolute final chapter in the Lords of Shadow saga, which began with 2010’s jaw-dropping reboot and continued on in the much maligned but honestly underrated Mirror of Fate (3DS), Gabriel Belmont’s story looks to break a norm set by other monolithic video game franchises: it seems to actually have finality.
Konami and MercurySteam are aiming Lords of Shadow 2 for a Winter release on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
