From the 1922 movie Nosferatu to Gary Oldman's portrayal of Dracula in the 90's hit movie Bram Stoker's Dracula, these are some of the inspirations behind development studio Mecurysteam's new vision for the age old cultural phenomenon of the pious catholic warrior turned Prince of Darkness, Dracula. Producers Dave Cox, and Enric Alvares of Mecurysteam studio explain the transition the protagonist is undergoing in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
I personally loved the first installment in the Lords of Shadow series, and cannot wait to meet new twisted personalities, revisit the dark world, and be captivated by mercurysteam's dynamic Dracula. The world of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be available February the 25th for the US, and February the 27th for Europe on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC. Until then enjoy this developer diary.
