It may be, but perhaps it shouldn't be, a surprise that the first big release of 2014 will be Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Launching on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 February 25, Lords of Shadow picks off where its predecessors Lords of Shadow and Mirror of Fate left off. The trilogy shall be complete and odds are we're not spiraling towards any sort of happy ending. That's punctuated by today's trailer showcasing a cast of friendly faces from the game.
In addition to introducing the main cast of Lords of Shadow 2, the trailer also makes sure to clarify who the voice actors are who are portraying each character. The confirmed voice cast includes: Robert Carlyle, Patrick Stewart, Richard Madden, Stuart Campbell, Natascha McElhone, Anthony Howell, Mark Lewis Healy, Sally Knyvette, Alex Childs, and Jason Isaacs.
While Castlevania: Lords of Shadow hasn't been particularly standout as a trilogy, it's hard not to respect Konamy for going in a different direction with the franchise as the old style became stale. Lords of Shadow is an interesting direction for the franchise and, I believe, getting better with each release. I have high hopes for Lords of Shadow 2. I can't wait for February
