A rather blurry off-screen but nonetheless enticing screen grab from MercurySteam's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 has popped up today, showing more of the same kind of richly detailed Gothic architecture as its predecessor, as hero Gabriel Belmont stands contemplating the spires and towers in front of him.

It looks like MercurySteam has outdone itself again based on this single image, clearly captured on the sly while Konami weren't looking [via AGB]. In short, Lords of Shadow 2 is looking pretty damn slick, dripping with pure Gothic majesty.

While this isn't the kind of thing we'd usually cover, we loved the first Lords of Shadow immensely and have high hopes for the sequel. Plus, we haven't heard anything since E3 in June when the game was initially unveiled. Is Konami gearing up to show some more from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 soon? Hopefully the answer is yes.

I thought after the end of part 1 that the game was going to switch to the modern day?

Never played the DLC, but I hope they pick up from the ending of the main game.

I really hope they don't make the game longer and get rid of some of the puzzles. I still didn't finish the first game because of the length.

If it's even close to being as awesome as the first one it's a day one buy, though I also remember first game ending in more modern times, so what gives? Maybe it will be throughout ages?

The first game was a true gem to play for me. I can't wait to grab a hold of this one!

#1 Yeah that's relevant to this page. Someone should uppercut you for posting that.

I was really surprised at how good the first one turned out. Looking forward to this one.

I really enjoyed the first Lord of Shadows till the DLC chapters sent me over the edge. Nevertheless I plan on getting the 2nd game. Just not sure on 1.5 due to the fact the 3DS doesn't appeal to me. Maybe I'll be able to get a 3DS for a decent used price for 1.5 once Mirrors of fate comes out.
