So Microsoft are visiting KojiPro. What for? As Spencer pointed out, it could be for either Castlevania: Lords of Shadow or Metal Gear Solid: Rising, or both. While the latter might seem more likely, it hasn’t been confirmed for release this year. Lords of Shadow, however, is listed for a global 2010 release in Konami’s financial results report.
Unlike other recent Castlevania games, Lords of Shadow is a reboot of the franchise, and is also a major step for Konami toward western development.
