Castlevania: Hello Mr. 360, Meet Mr. 2 Disc

Castlevania: Lords of Shadows has so many things going for it; a brand new Castlevania title developed by MercurySteam and Hideo Kojima, and narration by Sir Patrick Hewes Stewart (aka Patrick Stewart). The game’s demo at E3 blew fans and reviewers away with its non-stop action and gameplay style. What could go wrong?

Well, unfortunately for Xbox 360 owners, the game will be on 2 Discs; meaning, disc swapping action. But the limited disc capabilities are nothing new to 360 titles, but this is another multi-console game to be on more than one disc on the 360 compared to the PS3. Have no fear though, the team behind Lord of Shadows informed fans that they have a plan for this, by allowing you to install the first disc to your harddrive and being able to play the whole game off the 2nd disc, saving you the trouble of eventually disc swapping. One way or another, it will have to be done.

“I think it’s something Microsoft are going to experience more and more – that they need to help developers overcome the storage problem.”

While talking about Castlevania: Lord of Shadows and working with Hideo Kojima, he talked about the cut scene time for the game:

“Our longest one is 14 minutes, which is the end sequence… The game’s around 24 hours long and every level’s different. We have so much variety and we re-use very little assets.”
