Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, the final game in the Lords of Shadow series, will be available in North America on February 25. Konami will release the game in Europe on February 27.     The game continues the story of Gabriel Belmont, better known now as Dracula. The Belmont hunting Dracula is a neat surprise for fans. Victor Belmont has technically never been in a Castlevania game because he was the protagonist in Castlevania Resurrection, which Konami canceled. So, when he says he’s the last surviving Belmont that’s true as well.        While the trailer from Gamescom mostly shows the castle, most of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 takes place in the city. "The game takes place mostly in the city. We only showed mostly castle stuff because we’re not ready to show the city. The game takes place in one night, it’s a night when Satan comes back to the Earth. A night of chaos, a night of the apocalypse," Cox said to Siliconera.

 

It's pretty cool that they still acknowledge its existence.

 

 I read in the comments that Sonia Belmont is retconned due to Legends itself being retconned due to 'being a vast disappointment'.  Does anyone know if that's true? Would have been awesome to have her instead of Victor...

Another reboot?  Probably not!  Either way, this game keeps getting better and better!  Hate that you have to wait this long before it's released!

Maybe and I hope its in 2D, Vania's something that just doesn't feel like Vania in 3D :/

 

 

The game's looking great though, but I bet it'll just leave me with the sensation to play Symphony or Super IV again.

I love castlevania in either 3D or 2D form - i loved the PS2 games thought they were unnecessarily given low scores, the N64 games werent too bad just crap controls, 

 

I think the lords of shadow formula is fantastic for the series, i would love to see them carry it on, maybe like how batman arkham origins is continuing with a new studio - maybe they should do the same with this as mercury steam have had enough?

 

Either way it would be a shame if they just forget about castlevania 3D after this game.
