'Castelvania: Lords of Shadow 2' Delivers New Kind of (Playable) Dracula

You can, ahem, count on some cool Dracula action with Konami's upcoming video game sequel "Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2," which features the voice of Robert Carlyle as the uber-vamp. To be released on PlayStation, Xbox 360 and PC on Feb. 15, 2014, the game puts Dracula in the forefront, a first for the franchise.

In the video below, Dave Cox, Producer and Studio Head for Konami Digital Entertainment BV's European Production, and Enric Alvarez, Studio Head of Development at Mercury Steam, talk about this new creative direction. The duo talk about the design and motivation for the character, who will be set in a modern-day world, as well as the Dracula movies they'll pay homage to in "Lords Of Shadow."
