If it wasn’t clear before, this Castlevania: Lords of Shadow trailer stresses the departure from the core Castlevania series. While the hero carries the Belmont name, Gabriel’s arsenal of attacks look more like a certain angry Spartan.
Instead of watching this video you could download… oh wait… nevermind. The Castlevania: Lords of Shadow demo isn’t part of the US PlayStation Network update. Well, if you have a European PSN account you can grab it tomorrow and see if "the range of awesome secondary weapons" are truly awesome.
