Konami Digital Entertainment today unveiled the first in a new series of videos, highlighting the new weaponry and abilities available in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which will be available on February 25th in North America and three days later in Europe, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 introduces an improved combat system, with Dracula earning a series of powerful weapons and abilities as he progresses through the game. Central to this new format is the Void Sword, a mystical weapon with incredible restorative properties. The Void Sword is the focus of this first trailer, and the weapon itself is found early on in the game. Once obtained, the Void Sword allows Dracula to add his enemies’ health to his own with every strike. It is a hugely effective weapon, and becomes a focal point of the vampire's arsenal.
The new 50-second trailer shows the sword in full flow, against multiple foes and the game's larger adversaries.
