Sure, the first entry in the Lords of Shadow series wasn’t the biggest and brightest in the Castlevania franchise, and sure, maybe the 3DS spin-off had more than its fair share of faults, but the third time could be the charm as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is looking to be the end-all to the series’ downturn.
The newest trailer above shows some pretty amazing-looking gameplay and almost has a God of War III-esque visual style going on. Included in the video is some commentary to help you discern what you will be doing in game. The enemies look fantastic, the environments look noticeably better, and the combat is shiny and intense. Maybe it’s just that this Dracula isn’t as likable as a protagonist, but the game is definitely helping him out by making everything around him better.
