It's been a while since we've heard anything about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, but this latest trailer brings the heat.

Due out on Feb. 27, 2014, Lords of Shadow 2 will continue the dark, twisted tale of Dracula's quest for redemption. Or perhaps it will be Dracula's quest for acceptance. We've got cameos from Alucard and a few other somewhat familiar faces, but mostly this footage is all about Dracula wallowing in self-pity. At least until the flaming gauntlets come out.

The first Lords of Shadow was a solid re-imagining of the Castlevania series, and we're eager to see what Konami is doing new and different this time around. We still have a few months to go until we'll find out, but this is one Dracula story we can't wait to explore further.
