GamesCom 2010 – Konami has announced that the next installment of the Castlevania franchise, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be hitting store shelves October 5th in North America, and October 7th in Europe on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
In Lords of Shadow, players will assume the role of Gabriel Belmont, as he fights to bring his wife Marie back from the dead. Players will have more than 50 stages to fight through, all while wielding various weapons with a battle system that boasts more than 40 different combo attacks.
Additionally, there have been unconfirmed reports of the possibility of a collector’s edition of the game in the works. Recently, Amazon prematurely published detailed information (below) of what may appear to be the collector edition, which have sense then been taken down. The proposed collector’s edition comes with the original game, the official soundtrack, and a Lords of Shadow art book.
However, speaking with Joystiq, producer David Cox said that “The images of the special edition leaked onto the net are mock ups and NOT final…" Though it’s worth noting that Amazon did in fact have possession of these mock ups, and the present moment it’s unclear whether or not any of the information leaked will change for the final version.
