Sir Patrick Stewart narrates the Gothic action of the latest Castlevania trailer

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.
