Castlevania: Lords of Shadow has gotten a special collector’s edition announced Konami at Gamescom 2010.
As you’d expect and can see in the pic above, the game will include a number of cool additions for fans of the highly anticipated new 3D entry in the long-running series, which is being developed by Spanish developer MercurySteam (Clive Barker’s Jericho, American McGee presents Scrapland) with Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima producing in collaboration with Kojima Productions, who are watching over the project.
Hopefully this will mean that the game will turn out great. It is scheduled for release on October 5, 2010 in America and on October 7th in Europe for Xbox 360 and PS3.
Included in the special edition will be a glorious 30-40 page artbook and a soundtrack CD that includes between 18-20 tracks taken from the 20+ hour game. The limited edition version will set you back $80. But don’t distress!
If you pre-order Castlevania: Lords of Shadow from GameStop, you will ALSO get a nifty “‘Combat Cross’ premium soft-cotton t-shirt inspired by the chosen weapon of Gabriel Belmont!” Huzzah!
To whet your appetite for the game’s quickly approaching release, here is an all-new trailer from Gamescom 2010!
