Konami have released a new video for today’s release, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
The new video showcases the new adaptive combat elements of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. This new system is integral to combat within the new game, as Dracula begins in a weakened state and must gradually extend his abilities. This is effected by gathering experience points by killing foes and solving puzzles, and are then used to enhance the abilities of the game’s three key weapons: Void Sword, Chaos Claws and Shadow Whip. Each weapon is governed by a ‘skill tree’ system, wherein players level up their weapons through clever usage.
The more the player uses a specific weapon to execute key combination attacks, the more their power grows. Thus, experimentation is rewarded with increased power as challenging attacks are perfectly implemented. The new trailer shows how such attacks reward the player, and the results of the devastating attacks on those that dare defy Dracula.
