Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 announced, coming to PS3 and Xbox 360

Update: Now includes additional details from Konami.

Mirror of Fate isn't the only Castlevania game coming from Konami. In fact, it's not the only Lords of Shadow game. Konami has officially announced Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 for PS3 and Xbox 360. Developed by MercurySteam, the debut trailer paints a game that looks more like The Lord of the Rings than any Castlevania game before it.

Konami called Lords of the Shadow 2 "the shocking conclusion" to the story. In the sequel, "Dracula returns once again, weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. Facing a new and powerful threat, the vampire lord must reacquire his old powers, and only his castle holds the key."

"Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is the most successful Castlevania game to be released in the franchise's history," producer Dave Cox said in a press release. "We are looking to provide series fans yet another nail biter, complete with Dracula's resurrection and the Belmont clan's desire for his final destruction."
