Robots, Robots and Walking Castles: Konami at E3

E3 isn’t set to begin for a couple of days, but that hasn’t stopped Konami from showing off some of its upcoming releases in its Pre-E3 show, including a sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and the Zone of the Enders HD Collection.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is the sequel to the Lords of Shadow game released in 2010. The game is being developed by Spanish studio MercurySteam, who developed the first game with Kojima Productions.

The official website describes the story: “Dracula returns once again, weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. Facing a new and powerful threat, the Vampire Lord must reacquire his old powers – and only his castle holds the key.” He’ll also have to deal with the Belmont clan, who “seek his ultimate destruction.”

Konami also used the briefing to show off footage for some of its other projects, including Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance and the Zone of the Enders HD Collection. It also confirmed that the ZoE HD Collection would include a Metal Gear Rising demo. This demo will be released to the public at a later date.

The Zone of the Enders HD Collection will be released in Japan on October 25, while Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released in “early 2013.”
