While the debate over whether or not a stake has been driven through the heart of vampire movies rages on, there’s no debate over how awesome they are in video games, especially in Konami’s forthcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which I was able to briefly play at last year’s E3 Expo. To celebrate the next chapter in the Belmont family’s eternal struggle against the forces of evil and garlic-averse things that go bump in the night, Titan Books is releasing The Art of Castlevania – Lords of Shadow, a 192-page hardcover collection of illustrations, concept art, and other undead awesomeness that’s guaranteed to please the crazed Castlevania fan in your life.
And just in case they’re truly obsessed, Titan is also putting out a special slipcase version of the book, limited to 500 copies, that comes with a limited edition signed Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 print. Our friends at Titan have been kind enough to give us five exclusive preview images in advance of the book’s March 4th release, so take a sneak peek at what’s coming your way.
