For developer MercurySteam, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is all about Dracula and properly explaining his story in a way they felt it has not been previously done, the studio said in Konami's pre-E3 conference today.
Sounds really cool, though I still have to play the first LoS. I played Mirror of Fate on 3DS and enjoyed it. Anyone really like the first Lords of Shadow? I've heard a lot of mixed things about it.
It's pretty good. You could say it copies God of War style hack 'n slash and has a few Shadow of the Colossus like bosses. If you like that and do not have a mindset like "THEY COPY THIS AND THIS LOL THEY SUCK" or "THIS ISN'T METROIDVANIA STYLE THIS SUCKS" then you're probably gonna enjoy it.
I'm a huge fan of the original timeline and loved it (don't buy the DLC... youtube 'em after your playthrough). And as the fan that I am, I'm happy they are wrapping this up, but at the same time I can't wait to play this sequel. It was a nice "what if". Some didn't like it, but I liked the storytelling in the game and the action is what a 3D castlevania should be.
Thanks for the feedback everyone, I'm gonna have to go grab it. =)
The first one was so underrated. The boss fights and set-pieces were amazing.
I loved it. Nice Story and very good gameplay, the ending was also badass. You should really buy it.
So there's no chance we can play as Alucard? That would be disappointing.
You expect the to give away ALL of their surprises in a single trailer? Also, they hinted at Alucard in the trailer for LoS 2 that they showed last year. We can assume the character with the white long hair that stood before Dracula is meant to be Alucard, because he looks identical to the Alucard that appears in the 3DS spin-off game.
actually they just showed alucard ....clear as day
I liked the first one but this new trailer couldnt get me interested, hopefully I play a demo soon
". . .said producer Dave Cox. 'With the Lords of Shadow universe we decided very early on that we wanted to tell the story of Dracula, but felt that Dracula had never been properly explained, and his story had never been properly told.'" Except maybe in, you know, the actual novel, "Dracula" by, um, the guy who created him, Bram Stoker. Ah ha ha haaaaaa! Derivative "creative" types can be so self-important sometimes. . .
He clearly meant within the lore of the game, you contrarian twat.
Touched a nerve, did I? : )
