Castlevania: LoS 2 out next February, Mirror of Fate this October

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will launch in North America on Feb 25, Europe on Feb. 27 and the U.K. on Feb. 28 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC, Konami announced at Gamescom today.

The title features improvements on the 2010 3D franchise-reboot, such as giving the player more control over the camera’s viewpoint.  As outlined in our hands-on from E3 2013, Lords of Shadow 2’s gameplay focusses on combo-evasion combat sequencesand powerful weapons, including the blood-whip.

MercurySteam head and Lords of Shadow 2 game director Enric Alvarez told Polygon that the sequel’s story is darker and crueler than Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and the Nintendo 3DS game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate. Last month, producer Dave Cox said that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be the last game in the series from developer MercurySteam.

Lords of Shadow 2 is playable at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, which is currently underway until Aug. 25.

[Meanwhile the aforementioned] Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD will be released on Oct. 31 on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, according to an announcement on the official Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Facebook page.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD is an upgraded port of the 3DS version, which was released in March. In February, Konami U.K. studio head Dave Cox said that an HD version of the game was developed by MercurySteam before it was optimized for the handheld. At the time, Cox said a console port may see release pending the game’s performance on the 3DS.

Last week, The Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection, featuring the HD version of the Nintendo 3DS game Mirror of Fate, was listed on PlayAsia for $34.90, available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It consisted of the first Castlevania: Lords of Shadowgame, along with the Reverie and Resurrection DLC packs and an exclusive demo for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
