Last week, Konami published the next awaited title in the Castlevania franchise, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, to critical acclaim and somewhat mixed user response. While most thought the game was very well developed, many hardcore fans of the franchise felt it wasn’t the Castlevania they grew to love. Despite that, the success that Konami has already seen from LOS has been encouraging enough for Konami to green light a sequel as well.
Today, one of the composers of the game’s soundtrack let it be known that Mercury Steam is hard at work developing the sequel to LOS. He let this info out of the bag while talking to Eurogamer Spain about Konami’s requests as to what the second soundtrack should sound like.
Oscar Araujo said that Konami was looking for a more “aggressive” soundtrack that felt “rougher” than the last. The publisher is looking to push the “effeminate” feel that the older titles provided.
