Dave Cox, producer on the title and studio head of European production at Konami, said: "So now we come to the conclusion of the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow story. As such, we have gone all-out to create a fitting climax to one of the most warmly-welcomed series resurrections to date. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is bigger, more epic and more challenging - and tells a tale that will live on in video game lore forever."
