Original: Konami’s confirmed what we pretty much already knew; Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is coming.

The Mercury Steam-developed sequel was announced with the CG trailer below which shows the return of Simon Belmont, albeit in a very different form. It’s not known if we’ll be playing as him or as the mysterious figure introduced towards the end.

So far it’s confirmed for PS3 and 360. The also-rumored 3DS Castlevania was teased for a reveal on June 5, the day of Nintendo’s own conference.
