Thanks to an early leak, it looks like the long-in-production Kojima game Lords of Shadows is actually a -- gasp! -- Castlevania title … and it’s headed to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2010!
This whole concept is surreal to me right now, but as the pieces are slowly coming together, it looks like all this information could turn out to be true! Of course, we will know if this is, indeed, fact when Konami has its press conference later on this week.
But, seriously, let’s think about what this leak is telling us: The mysterious “dark fairy tale” action/adventure game Lords of Shadows that is one of the next big games from Kojima Productions … is actually the next game in the Castlevania series. Kojima and Castlevania. Joining forces. Oh my lord have mercy this is incredible.
And, as fellow editor Grim said: “Castlevania: Now with 100% more cutscenes!” Ha!
What do you think about this news? Are you just as confused as I am? Do you feel better waiting until the Konami press conference to get excited about this? If it is true, are you hoping and praying that Lords of Shadows could actually be a 2D game? Also, is it possible that this rumor could have been started by a simple cut and paste mistake?
