Konami has revealed the first in a new series of videos, highlighting the innovative new weaponry and abilities available in the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
With the conclusion to the â€˜Lords of Shadowâ€™ series releasing on February 25th, the publisher has issued the first video detailing key armaments within the new game. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 introduces an improved combat system, with Dracula earning a series of powerful weapons and abilities as he progresses through the game. It gets a bit He-Man near the middle, but it’s a pretty cool video anyway.
Central to this new format is the Void Sword, a mystical weapon with incredible restorative properties. The Void Sword is the focus of this first trailer, and the weapon itself is found early on in the game. Once obtained, the Void Sword allows Dracula to add his enemiesâ€™ health to his own with every strike. It is a hugely effective weapon, and becomes a focal point of the vampireâ€™s arsenal.
