Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2: Developer Diary #2: Exploring the World
Second behind-the-scenes reveal explores open-world environment
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has issued a second development video, this time focusing on the huge open-world environment of its forthcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 title.
The new game is set to be released on February 27th for PlayStation®3, Xbox 360 and PC, and the new video features Dave Cox, Producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Studio Head of European Production for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V., and Enric Alvarez, Head of Development at MercurySteam.
Dave and Enric detail 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.
The five-minute video offers a tantalizing glimpse of the game’s many settings, and how MercurySteam’s native Madrid provided inspiration for the locations that await those entering Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s labyrinthine locations. The pair also touch on the menagerie of creatures and bosses that lurk within the city, whilst additionally whetting appetites for the game’s climactic confrontation with Satan himself…
