Konami has announced that it will release a Windows PC version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 alongside the consoles.
The Windows PC version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is being simultaneously developed by Madrid-based Mercury Steam. The new game features a new storyline, a larger cast of characters,open world environments, and visuals delivered via a more powerful, brand new in-house game engine called Mercury Engine 2.
“This new game tells a much broader tale and one that spans centuries. It is a game that pushes whatever format it is on to the absolute limit, and we are delighted that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s rich blend of first-class fighting, deep exploration and rich storytelling are set to delight and enthrall PC users, too. There’s a darkness coming and with our new game engine, we hope to deliver something truly special across multiple formats that will set new standards for action adventure games," commented Dave Cox, Producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
Whereas the first game detailed the origin of Dracula and his legendary connection with the Belmonts, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, acts as a finale to the Lords of Shadow saga, as Dracula returns once again; weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds.
