A big fan of the Castlevania franchise? Konami Digital Entertainment have come forward with some news that may make your day.
The company have announced that an Ultimate Edition for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is currently in the works for the Windows PC, which is set to go live in August via both physical and digital releases. This Ultimate Edition is set to feature the full game that was originally made available on the Playstation 3 and XBox360 alongside two add-on chapters.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is set at the end of days and dark powers isolate the Earth. The World’s alliance with the Heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force – the eponymous Lords of Shadow. Across this shattered land, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil wreak chaos and death upon the living.
Enter Gabriel Belmont: a member of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by evil forces and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead, she foresees the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny – and hopefully salvation for the world.
The digital edition of the game will be available for download via Steam on the 27th August 2013 while you will need to hold out a few days for a retail release, with a boxed edition set to follow on the 29th/30th August.
