Castlevania: Lords of Shadow won’t have CGI cutscenes

Thursday, 18th February 2010 18:25 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Konami’s David Cox has tweeted that the footage shown so far for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow has been taken straight from in-game footage.

What’s more, the game’s producer says that there is no CGI in the game at all.

Here’s the tweets (via Examiner):

All cut scenes are done using the games engine

Castlevania LOS is a CG free zone. Everything we have shown, including, the trailers is in-game and rendered using the game engine. Official!!

That’s great news, especially considering how fantastic it’s looking so far, which is also a plus considering the game is suppose to last around 15 hours.

Jason Isaacs plays Gabriel in it, the hero looking for “revenge and retribution”.

Lords of Shadow is slated for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 this year.

    Impossible. This game is in production by some Spain company MercurySteam that made

    American McGee presents: Scrapland


    Clive Barker’s Jericho

    that sucked a massive ass. Maybe Kojima’s team can help them…

    Nooo! But this game looks so good in the trailers! Surely Konami wouldn’t have hired such expensive voice talent were they not confident in the project? I need my GoW fix – I can’t afford a PS3 until Xmas and I’m not convinced Dante’s Inferno will cut it!

    Scrapland was not at all bad, as for Jericho, Codemasters was probably to blame.

    At least artistically these games were alright. Under Konami they’ll blossom.

    I’m actually really looking forward to this and hoping they pull it off with tremendous (and surprising) success. I like what they’ve shown so far.

    Good to see they’re confident enough in the engine to do away with the CGI. It’d be nice to see some proper footage of this, though – it’s ages since we saw a trailer and that was really just snippets.
