The lights are on
If you haven't played Castlevania: Lords of Shadow yet, you may want to stop reading this news story right here. "The waters of my life flow ever long, never stopping," says Dracula in a new trailer debuting during Spike's Video Game Awards. "After centuries of sleep and nothingness, I have returned. I have no memory of how I got here." The "here" he's referring to is modern day society.
During this trailer, an older, white-haired Dracula is seen lurking within the shadows of a cathedral located in a thriving metropolis. He reflects on his life to his youth and the beginnings of his bloodlust. I suspect this era will be used for the majority of the game. Here, we see him feeding on the neck of a soldier, and using his strength to topple giants.
I hope the modern day content isn't just used to set up a flashback story. Playing as Dracula in modern day times would be a bold move for the series. I can't wait to see what Mercury Steam has in store for us.
A common theme for the night, no system specifics were given.

ohohohoho~ i cant wait to see this game!!!!
This pleased me during the VGA's.
this will be awesome
I've been waiting on this game since I finished the original 2 years ago.
Aaarrrrggghhh I can't wait for this, Lords of Shadow was amazing! Right up there with Super Castlevania IV and Symphony of the night. And on PC as well! I'm not gonna make the same mistake as last time, I'm gonna pre-order what ever collector's edition they make as soon as it's available.
Very exciting stuff... Modern Day Castlevania would be epic
love the first and will definetely love this one
Id like a little flashback but present would be cool.
I wonder if Hideo Trolljima(Phantom Pains) also worked on this one.
The 1st one was great. Can't wait for this one.
