Eidos has announced that the latest game in the Legacy of Kain series, Blood Omen 2, will be appearing on the GameCube, marking the franchise's first foray onto a Nintendo console. In development at Crystal Dynamics, Blood Omen 2 follows the adventures of the vampire Kain, as he attempts to restore order to the land and bring the vampires to power. "We are excited to bring video gaming's most infamous villain--Kain--to the GameCube in Crystal Dynamics' Blood Omen 2," says Sean Amann, marketing director for Eidos Interactive. "With an emphasis on storyline, puzzle solving, and deadly combat, Blood Omen 2 for GameCube promises to be one of the few dark thrillers available for the system to date."
The GameCube version of Blood Omen 2 is scheduled for release this Halloween.
