Even Dracula needs help sometimes. Players will get the Void Sword pretty early in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, and judging by this video footage, will proceed to lay waste to enemies.

The sword also has another side to it: When it strikes an enemy, it adds some of that enemy's health to Dracula's.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 comes out on February 25 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Digital subscribers to Game Informer can check out our review here.
