Is That MOTHERF&#@ING Alucard in Lords of Shadow 2?

Posted on Friday, June 1 @ 07:30:49 Eastern by


If you listen to our weekly podcast, GameRevolution Radio, you may have heard Daniel and I go back and forth on the subject of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. He loves it. I, however, thought it was great at the beginning, but fell short, leaving me to give up on the game and move on.

Hearing about a sequel, Daniel was like a school girl on prom night, waiting for his corsage—excited, to say the least. Last night during Konami's pre-E3 show, they confirmed the existence of the sequel with a trailer.

...And in that trailer...

I could swear that Alucard is there. Since I didn't finish the first Lords of Shadow, I have no idea why Gabriel Belmont has these demonic powers, and this whip-hand thingy that lets him decimate entire crowds of mortals in mere seconds. And since they don't show his face, only a glimpse of the ghostly white hair and black, gold-trimmed garb, I can't say for sure if my favorite Castlevania character of all-time is in the game. But it sure as shit looks to be him, and it's enough to make me purchase Lords of Shadow and pick up where I left off. Because now, I've got to see what the hells is going on.

Tell GR: Is this Alucard?

Here's the trailer.
