At their E3 press conference, Konami has officially unveiled Castlevania: Lord of Shadows. The trailer, narrated by Patrick Stewart, was all in-engine, featuring some God of War-esque action. Lord of Shadows will be an open world adventure, featuring a hero seeking salvation and retribution.
Dave Cox, from Konami Europe, is the producer of the title, with the Spanish studio Mercury Steam developing it. Mercury Steam will be working under direction from Hideo Kojima, though Kojima wanted to clarify that he is giving the majority of freedom to Mercury Steam. Cox tauts the game as the definitive 'next gen Castlevania'. The game is due for a simultaneous worldwide release in 2010, for the PS3 and 360.
