Did You Say You Wanted A Lords of Shadow 2 Trailer

Because you know we deal in trailers here, right?

Do you hear those dulcet tones? That smooth velvety voice? Why... that's Patrick Stewart's music! That's right, everyone's favorite overbearing bald man is back to tell the tale of Gabriel/Dracula in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. He's back in a new entry in the "spin-off" franchise that hits stores tomorrow.

We all know there aren't many series with as rich of a history as Castlevania. We've been swinging whips and stopping Dracula since the early days of the NES and nary a console generation (or handheld generation) has gone by without numerous new entries in the series. Last generation brought about one of the more drastic changes with Lords of Shadow, a game that eschewed the series tradition of side-scrolling light-RPG exploration for a character-action driven game in the vein of the God of War series.

That doesn't mean they abandoned the older style (although we aren't seeing any new releases right now) but they instead embraced change and made something that meshed more with modern sensibilities.

Konami is picking up where they left off by plopping Dracula in modern times as a confused and weak immortal (is that possible) trying to pick up the pieces and make sense of what's happened. You can check out the new trailer here to get an idea of what the game has in store.

It's been a pretty quiet few months on the gaming front, but Lords of Shadow 2 is the first shot fired in an upcoming armada of new games that are hitting over the next month. Wake up gamers, the long hibernation is coming to an end!
