Konami’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow has been enjoying praise from press outlets and reviews.  The game, which was released October 5 in North America and October 7 in Europe, has been hailed as setting a new standard for the previously lackluster track record of 3D Castlevania.  The game’s composer, Oscar Arujo, was happy enough to admit a sequel is already in the planning phase.

Araujo, who composed an “aggressive” and “rough” soundtrack for the game, revealed the information during an interview with Spanish radio, saying “If you liked the first [game], hope that the second is even more spectacular.”

Prior to this MercurySteam had revealed it was working on a new title, although only rumors suggested it was a Lords of Shadow sequel.  Konami offered no comment to Eurogamer.

  1. I don’t know, I am a long time castlevania fan and I tried to care about Lords of Shadow but all the reviews I read and video’s I watched just made me feel like they gave it the wrong title. It should have been Castlevania: Dracula May Cry or Vampire of War. I am tired of those types of games and unlike SotN and others in the Vania series they don’t feel that fun on a replay either.

  2. I’ve been playing it when I can the last week, and Lords of Shadow is certainly a good game, but I think the gameplay of the last two 3D outings – Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness – were vastly superior in every way.

    The trailers deterred me from making the purchase.

    Like Jamie, I still don’t get why people make fun of Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness.

    They were great games. I just think people didn’t understand them, and were expecting the next Symphony of the Night. News flash: every single game in a series don’t always have to be revolutionary!

    Why does everyone rip on the N64 Cvanias? there were great, and lot of stuff in LoS was taken from those games.
