The lights are on
As Lords of Shadow nears release, Konami and developer Mercury Steam are moving away from trailers, and instead offering gameplay footage. The newest video introduces the Toymaker and showcases the ensuing boss fight.
The nearly nine-minute clip shows a boss battle and the cutscenes that occur before and after it. In the clip, Gabriel Belmont and The Toymaker make reference to The Mirror of Fate – an important object from the 3DS Lords of Shadow game that released last year.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 27. For more on the game, check out our extensive hands-on coverage, some recent behind the scenes videos, as well as a break-down of all of Dracula's vampiric powers.

He should have dranked his ass!
Very much looking forward to this one. Loved Lords of Shadow and I'm counting on Mercury Steam fixing the issues it had with this part.
HIM! That little runt caused me plenty of trouble in Mirror of Fate. The cyborg demon, all those puppet enemies, and more than half the traps in the castle seem to come from him. I will enjoy this more than I probably should.
I need to finish the first game still. I'll still pick this up, but won't play it until I've completed the first one. This one looks awesome though.
I thought it would be Santa...I'm disappointed.
They chose a really sequence to pull you into the game
I never played the 1st game, but with this collector's Ed. I will purchase this for sure Doods!!!!!
Can't wait for this. It's been so long since that insane ending in LOS1.
looks really cool
The wait is killing me.
This game looks insanely hard!!!!
Never played mirrors of fate. Should i before playing LoS2?
Prior to his transformation, Toymaker sounded a lot like Jester from Devil May Cry 3. I wonder if they share the same voice actor.
What no, why is chubby stubby Vash crying? I like him he's nice,I mean all in all I'm glad he's okay but I don't like to see him sad... should I watch a play through of the mirror of fate to understand this?
day 1 game...still replay the 1st one...
