Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 developer MercurySteam’s clearly been spending too much time with Hideo Kojima. This brand new video – revealed during Konami’s pre-recorded E3 press conference moments ago – is less a trailer and more an epic. The six minute showcase features a bit of everything: monologues, monsters, and fatal foreplay sessions.

According to the Spanish studio, the game will boast an open world component set in the modern day. While the majority of the campaign will take place in Dracula’s castle, you’ll also be able to explore the city glimpsed during the previous title’s puzzling conclusion. Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?

The game’s due out this winter on the PlayStation 3. We were rather fond of the last instalment, so we’re looking forward to sinking our teeth into this.
