Interview with MercurySteam’s Dave Cox about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Contra?

castlevania-lords-of-shadow-2-hd-wallpaperThe Castlevania series has been around for decades, and while Dracula has been resurrected over and over, his story took a different twist with the Lords of Shadow saga that was developed by MercurySteam. While the upcoming Lords of Shadow 2 will be the epic conclusion to the series, it didn’t stop us from asking producer Dave Cox about what’s in store for not only Dracula, but the upcoming characters such as Alucard in the game.

You can check out our impressions from the E3 build here, and as a Castlevania fanboy, I am pretty excited for the next game. I’m also sad that it’s the last game in the Lord of Shadows series which has tons of potential compared to other Castlevania 3D titles that have failed to impress as much.

At Comic-Con we got a one-one-one interview with Lords of Shadow’s 2 producer about his start with the company, his favorite Castlevania titles, and his interest in making a new Contra title.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadows 2 releases this Winter on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
