MercurySteam's reboot of Konami's classic side-scrolling, vampire hunting franchise has received a release date. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will hit retailers on October 5 in North America and October 8 in Europe.
MercurySteam has taken Konami's Castlevania franchise and given it the 3D action adventure treatment. Much like other action games on the market like God of War and Bayonetta, players take the reigns of Gabriel Belmont as he searchs for answers and a way to resurrect his murdered wife by way of hacking and slashing demons and creatures of the night.
Hideo Kojima himself has provided advice to the team at MercurySteam. Gaming Union had the opportunity to try the game out at E3 and it is certainly something to keep your eyes on.
