Konami has just unveiled brand new console IP known as ‘Lords of Shadow’ during its press conference at the Leipzig Games Convention.
Sounding remarkably like a cross between Castlevania and Too Human, the trailer depicted a lone knight kneeling in an atmospheric church, quickly followed by an almighty crash as a giant creature tears at the roof – shattering any illusion this would be anything but an action title.
The knight pulls out a sword and a whip made of chain, sets his weaponry on fire and takes aim at the monster – cut to the logo and end of the footage.
Nice tease Konami, but we’re interested in finding out more. Lords of Shadow is confirmed as an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 release.
Here is the trailer for Lords of Shadow:
