Lords of Shadow 2 is getting a PC release


This is good news! Long-running platform RPG series Castlevania is heading our way, with producer Dave Cox breathlessly tweeting: “That’s right! Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is coming to PC!” Excellent! Lords of Shadow is the celebrated reboot of the vampire-slaying adventure series, released in 2010 on the Xboxes and Playstations and lauded as a canny mesh of platforming and violent combo-based combat mechanics. It also has Robert Carlisle in it, playing Dracula. This time around, we get a slice of that pie. That delicious blood pie.

MercurySteam are heading up development of Konami’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, expected to arrive some time next year. Citing popular demand, the decision was made to port to thing to PC. Robert “The Full Monty” Carlisle is reprising his role as chief fanglord. Here he is in the title’sdebut cinematic, dishing out some undeserved pain.
