Check Out This Teaser Image for Castlevania Lords of Shadow Dev's Next Game



Castlevania: Lords of Shadow developer MercurySteam has posted a cryptic teaser image that hints at the studio's next project.

No Caption Provided

On the developer's homepage, you can see the image above with the words, "Status: Exploring new worlds, fighting strange creatures, discovering new heroes. Expect news soon."

Back in 2010, MercurySteam worked with Kojima Productions to create the first Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, an action-adventure take on the vampire-hunting franchise. The studio's most recent game was the follow-up Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which received praise in GameSpot's review for its enemy designs and "beautiful gothic architecture."

While it's apparent from the teaser image that the next project will take a more sci-fi inspired bent, no other details about the game or what company will publish it have been made available. But given that the European games convention GamesCom is fast approaching, we expect to hear more details soon.
