With their release of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 set for release on the 27th of this month worldwide, Konami have opted to release their second developer diary for the game.
Starring producer Dave Cox and development head at MercurySteam Enric Alvarez, the pair discuss how the events of the new game take place during the course of one night, and within both a modern city setting and Dracula’s castle – both of which are linked. They also discuss how Dracula’s evil presence has impacted the many environments, with the castle’s Gothic look having a huge influence on the surrounding settings and their design, whilst also tying in with the familiar look of past Castlevania titles. Even if you don’t listen to them talking, you will be given a glimpse of the many settings that exist in the game world – and some of the threats that lurk within the open-world environment.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is set for release worldwide later this month on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 video game consoles.
