Mercury Steam, the Spain-based dev team currently hard at work on finishing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 has released the second video in its developer diary series offering a behind the scenes look at the game. This latest clip focuses on the game's world, which takes a bit of a departure from what Castlevania fans are used to, by bringing the player into a modern day city as Gabriel Belmont awakes as Dracula hundreds of years after the end of the first game.
As Producers Dave Cox and Enric Alvarez explain, it's not London or New York or any other real world locale, but draws inspirations from modern day European cities like Madrid or Cologne that have a mix of slick contemporary buildings with plenty of old gothic architecture as well. Watch the clip below.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is due in Australia on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 27th 2014.
