Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 release date set

Lords of Shadow conclusion arrives late February.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will launch for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 25 in North America and February 28 in Europe, Konami has announced.

A sequel to 2010’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and the final chapter in the Lords of Shadow saga, Lords of Shadow 2 picks up where the first game concluded, with Dracula in modern times weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. His old ally Zobek makes him an offer in return for his help against Satan, who is returning to the world to bring about the apocalypse.

“So now we come to the conclusion of the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow story,” said Dave Cox, Producer on the title and Studio Head of European Production at Konami Digital Entertainment. “As such, we have gone all-out to create a fitting climax to one of the most warmly-welcomed series resurrections to date. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is bigger, more epic and more challenging – and tells a tale that will live on in video game lore forever.”
