Early Design Work from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Posted to Facebook and YouTube
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today released a clip of original gameplay footage of iconic vampire hunter character, Simon Belmont from the Castlevania franchise. The new video shows the early design of a young Simon Belmont in action entering Dracula’s castle to exterminate attacking ghouls during an early conceptual phase of Castlevania:Lords of Shadow, in which the character was considered to be a part of the game. Unknown to fans, this early concept video was never released as the lead character in the game eventually became Gabriel Belmont, a new protagonist that made his debut in Castlevania:Lords of Shadow.
Castlevania fans and gamers can view the new footage on the official Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Castlevania-Lords-of-Shadow/220827690696. Earlier this month, the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow swept the gaming industry awards at the Gamelab Conference in Barcelona, earning 8 honors including ‘Best Game’.
