Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 screenshots released

Those uninitiated in the ways of darkness may be forgiven for thinking that Dracula and Satan would make for natural allies. However, in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Dracula (as Gabriel Belmont from the first game is now known) is charged with defeating the overlord of Hell, teaming up with Death along the way. If that’s not Gothic enough for you, then perhaps Konami’s new screenshots will fill your void.

Good thing Gabriel is vampire, and not a werewolf...

Despite the spires and distinctly 14th Century architecture, the sequel is set in modern days, with our protagonist having to rediscover his immortal powers in order to fight Satan and reclaim his castle. The game is slated for release February 25 in North America, and will be playable on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. All of the new pictures for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 can be seen on the official Konami website.

Sexy and she knows it.
