Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 coming February 25

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is coming on February 25, Konami has announced. The company had previously slated it for a vague winter slot, so this still qualifies as meeting that target.

The sequel boasts a more open world, new weapons like the Void Sword and Chaos Claws, and new vampiric abilities. You can read up more on what it tries new in our preview. It will release simultaneously on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Developer MercurySteam has indicated it plans to wrap up the Lords of Shadow series with this installment.
