Konami has released a new trailer for Castlevania: Lords of the Shadow 2, fresh from its pre-E3 conference debut.

Billed as the last of the Lords of the Shadow sub-series, LotS 2 will focus on exploration across a loading-screen free world. It’s apparently a darker, nastier version take on the whip-lashing original. Oh and it's got Robert Carlyle and Sir Patrick Stewart in it again, but you probably guessed that from the headline.

Castlevania: Lords of the Shadow 2 is out this winter on current-gen systems. Trailer’s below. You can watch the whole of Konami’s conference here.

My most anticipated game of 2013, the first LoS is the game that got me into achievement hunting (with Batman:AA)

I've always had a blood lust for Castlevania and watching this trailer makes me lust for more. Lords of Shadow wasn't your classic Castlevania game but to anyone who hasn't played the first, please do. You won't be disappointed. ^_^

@5 Have you played Curse of Darkness for the Xbox or PS2? Another great 3D Castlevania.

Literally, the only thing I am bummed about with Lords of Shadow 2 is that everyone's hair (ESPECIALLY non shriveled Gabriel's) looks like ass. I'd say barely early PS2 levels. It looks like matted down, dry seaweed or paper.

Everything else about this game looks amazing.

I'm super pumped about the open world and the addition of the free camera instead of a fixed one with 'levels'. I like levels in Classic Castlevania, but I think LoS will benefit better from this.

The Konami video (not the trailer) also showed what looked like the Toy Man from Mirror of Fate, which is cool, as he wasn't really explored at all.

@7 Nice to see someone else appreciated Curse of Darkness.

This was the only thing I was looking forwards to for E3 (and the announcement that LoS was being released on PC), so I'm done with E3 now.

looking to pick the first one up to play, only played 45 mins of it when it was released and thought it wasnt any thing like a castlevania game & put it back on the shelves. Hoping I can be converted, fang marks and all. Liked the n64 game but always preferred the 2d games.

@9 Yes I agree Legacy of Darkness has some fond memories with me as well.
@11 Castlevania has always been one of my favorite franchises since the NES days. I do love how they built on it. Aria of Sorrow being one of the best of the series in my opinion. I can appreciate the 3D games. Lament of Innocence was also pretty a pretty good induction to the series. ^_^

Amazing trailer, curious if this is a conclusion does that mean we get to see what happened to him leading up to his hibernation and then fight Satans acolytes in modern times?

Wow...that was the best trailer I've seen in a long time...!

For some reason watching that trailer and hearing that epic music made me feel proud to be a Gamer. Is that a weird thing to say??

"Sir" Patrick Stewart? If chivalry is dead, it's because knights are a fucking joke now. Used to be you had to kill barbarians and shit for that title. Now you just have to be on Star Trek.
