Castlevania: Lords of Shadow hits PC August 27

Mention of a PC release for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was spotted in Steam's registry back in March, and now it's as official as something that was clearly happening can be. Publisher Konami today announced the PC version will be an 'Ultimate Edition' complete with the two DLC chapters, and is due to launch on August 27.

Konami said in today's overdue formal announcement that the PC edition "boasts enhanced 1080p HD graphics, runs at a solid 60 frames per second via recommended spec, and offers trophy integration through Steam with Cloud saving."

It probably just got a little confused and forgot that PCs can run higher resolutions than 1080p; don't worry about it. And that boast about 60fps with the recommended spec doesn't mean much without knowing what the spec is but, ah, the Steam page isn't up yet as I write this.

It also includes the two $10 DLC chapters, Reverie and Resurrection.

Lords of Shadow, if you didn't pay attention when it came out on PlayBox and XStation in October 2010 because who cares about those, was a rather God of War-y take on the classic monster-mashing series, with all the drama one could hope to wring from games about whipping Dracula.
