The long-expected sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was finally made official on GT.TV’s pre-E3 episode.

The sequel, called simply Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, is as yet known only by its title; host Geoff Keighley said the game is currently in development for 2013 release.

An initial, cinematic trailer showed a huge army marching on a baroque castle, only to be met by what appeared to be the former game’s protagonist, Gabriel Belmont.

Belmont was seen taking on a huge golem like creature, including in the form of giant bird made of fog.

A mysterious figure at the end of the trailer hinted at other members of the Belmont family making an appearance.

The announcement was leaked earlier in the day.
