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.
