Konami has revealed a new Castlevania game, titled Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, at its E3 press conference.
The game, which is being developed by Clive Barker’s Jericho creator Mercury Steam in collaboration with Kojima Productions, was first unveiled last year as Lords of Shadow.
A fantasy action title set in an open game world, it sees players take on the role of Gabriel, a member of a group of holy knights called the Brotherhood of Light. Guided by the spirit of his murdered wife, Gabriel must defend the innocent against the supernatural and bring order to an unbalanced world.
The game’s voice cast includes Robert Carlyle, Patrick Stewart, Natasha McElhone and Jason Isaacs.
“Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will take the Castlevania series into brave, uncharted territories, and is a breathtaking adventure that boasts stunning aesthetics, deep and challenging gameplay, and a truly inspirational voice cast to deliver the game’s dramatic depth,” said the title’s producer, Dave Cox.
