A reboot to the franchise, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow had decent success when it was first released to the public on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010. Konami has now announced it will be releasing an Ultimate edition for PC version around August.
This dark fantasy action-adventure follows the sad despairing tail of Gabriel Belmont, whose wife was murdered by an evil known as the Lords of Shadow. Her soul is captured and she is stuck in limbo; neither quite living, nor quite dead. She instead guides Belmont to salvation – a theme very reminiscent of Dante’s Divine Comedy, where the main character’s love interest dies and then guides him through a quest to find paradise and salvation.
The PC edition will contain two add-on chapters, and is coming out on Steam on August 27th, while a physical product will arrive August 30th.
