A World, Its Music, A Toymaker, & The Void



On February 28th, developer studio MecurySteam, and Japanese video games publisher KONAMI, will unleash pure evil onto retail stores with Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2. Find yourself exploring a progressively open world. Explore Dracula's castle which has over the decades had a modern city rise up around it. Names like Madrid, and Cologne were thrown around when describing the blend of the quaint, and the present designs of architecture applied to Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2. All said to be seamlessly traversable with no loading times.

Is music important to you? It is for Konami, and Mercurysteam as well. Throughout the span of three years Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2's musical score has been painstakingly crafted, and honed. Composer Oscar Araujo describes his deep appreciation for the music composition process in video games, and his great sense of honor to have been able to work on Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2 at the legendary Abby Road Studio, the recording studio of legend rock band The Beatles.

The Toymaker is definitely an intriguing character of Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2. First introduced into the franchise in Castlevania: Mirror of fate. The Toymaker is a refreshing breath of air. His playful antics prove entertaining, and leaves you wanting to see more of him. Although he is one of many boss battles in Lord of Shadows, he himself is not your enemy. As shown in this and previous trailers we see character after character be taken over, and transformed by this pool of blood. A reuccuring theme in Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2 I'm sure.
