Castlevania: Lords of Shadow ships 1 million
Spanish-made Xbox 360, PS3 reboot of Konami's seminal series hits milestone in US and Europe.
After first being teased in March 2008 and then formally announced during the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow finally shipped on October 5, 2010. The response to the series reboot has been solid, as today Konami announced that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game has shipped--not sold--1 million units in the US and Europe.
Developed by Spain-based Mercury Steam under Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima's supervision, Lords of Shadow is set in the year 1047 and follows a new member of the Belmont clan, Gabriel, who is a member of the Brotherhood of Light. Gabriel's adventure involves roaming the land in pursuit of pieces of an artifact that can bring the dead back to life while battling nefarious underworld creatures and other mythical monsters.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow's most marked change from traditional installments in the franchise is its free-roaming environments. The game also features combat that recalls Sony's acclaimed God of War franchise, in addition to a variety of puzzle challenges. It sports the voice talent of such actors as Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Natasha McElhone (Californication), Jason Issacs (Brotherhood), and Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, Stargate Universe) as Gabriel. A sequel is already reportedly in development.
