Lords of Shadow Trailer

The Castlevania series that gained its popularity in the late 1980’s has gotten a complete make-over, and a star-studded trailer was released at this week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) convention.

The Castlevania: Lords of Shadow trailer tells the story of Gabriel, who appears to be a pawn in the ongoing battle between Dracula, a blood thirsty vampire, and the Belmonts, a vampire-hunting family. The trailer mentions a mask that can bring back the dead, and werewolves can be seen stalking on a cliff ledge near the end.

We can clearly hear the voices of Patrick Stewart, Robert Carlyle (“Begbie” from “Trainspotting”), Jason Isaacs, and Natasha McElhone (“Karen” from “Californication”), although it is not clear if they will be lending their voices to the game itself.

The game is created by Konami, and is scheduled for release sometime in 2010.  The game web site is still under development, but am sure that Konami will not dissapoint.
