Ready the whips and crosses. No, I’m not talking about going to an S&M club again, I’m talking about the new Castlevania game.
Check out the trailer forCastlevania: Lords of Shadow, a reboot for the franchise and a radical change to the Castlevania myth according to Konami.
The game takes place during “the end of days,” and you play as Gabriel Belmont (voiced by Robert Carlyle), a member of the “Brotherhood of Light”, an order that protects the innocent against supernatural creatures. Gabriel’s wife is brutally killed by one of the members. Her soul is now trapped in limbo due to a malevolent spell that has stopped the souls of the deceased from crossing over. She assists Gabriel in his journey to remove the spell and save the world.
The game cinematics look amazing so far, hopefully we get some gameplay footage soon. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will hit store shelves October 5th. Stay glued to Geek Peeks for more news from the Tokyo Game Show 2010.
