Earlier today, Konami got the ball rolling as the first major publisher to hold its Electronic Entertainment Expo press briefing. The company talked about social games, dropped a major announcement about its Metal Gear Solid series, and then talked at length about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

The 3D character-action sequel is due out this winter for current-gen consoles. It will wrap up the Lords of Shadow plot, according to the trailer.
