A recent update to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow developer MercurySteam's website teases a new science-fiction project.

If you go to, you will see the image above of a man smoking a cigar in some kind of futuristic cockpit bathed in green light, and following text also appears on-screen:

STATUS: Exploring new worlds, fighting strange creatures, discovering new heroes. Expect news soon...

MercurySteam's pre-Castlevania work is also on display.

In 2012, before the release of Lords of Shadow 2, MercurySteam expressed an interest modernizing the Contra franchise. It's hard to extract too many details from the image above, but Contra wouldn't be a stretch.

Our Take
I loved Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. I liked Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate. I played Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. MercurySteam is a talented developer, even if it had a misstep with Lords of Shadow 2, and I am interested in seeing what it has in store for the future.
