During a recent roundtable interview, Konami’s producer Dave Cox claimed that the PC version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 looks way better than its console counterparts. In fact, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 PC is so good that Dave Cox described that particular version as a next-gen game.
As Dave Cox stated:
“The PC version is almost like a next-gen version. The limitations of the current consoles…we can push that back. We designed the game engine for next-gen in mind. We knew that this would be the last game we did on current-gen, so in many ways the PC version is almost like a test run for us.”
Pretty bold statements from Dave Cox. It will be interesting to see whether Mercury Steam has used higher-resolution assets on the PC version, and whether this version supports more advanced graphical effects.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is scheduled for a February 28th release.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
