Gamers increasingly want to know what’s going on behind the scenes of their favorite games. While the development diary may have once been on an extra disc for a special edition, publishers are now releasing them before the game comes out to drum up excitement. Now Konami is jumping on the dev diary bandwagon for its latest Castlevania title.
Konami and MercurySteam released the first dev diary for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 today. This particular dev diary focuses on what the team wants to do with the character of Dracula in this game. Since players will be playing as Dracula this time around, the team wanted to make players empathize with him while still holding him at arm’s length.
If you want to check out Lords of Shadow 2 for yourself, the demo is currently available as a bonus for purchasing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD on PSN or XBLA. If you’re a fan of the franchise, you’ll want to check out Mirror of Fate anyway as it details the events between the first Lords of Shadow and its upcoming sequel.
