KONAMI brings big hitters to Cologne showcase, with major reveals for all
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. will use this year’s gamescom event to showcase its popular Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and PES 2014 series.
gamescom is Europe’s premier gaming event, and takes place in Cologne from August 21st-25th. KONAMI will uses its 500 square meter stands on the show floor to offer visitors valuable hands-on time with its eagerly awaited wares. As such, keen gamers will be able to experience the fluidity and realism that the augmented FOX Engine brings to PES 2014, and get to grips with the sprawling 3D realms and epic battles that elevate the PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360® versions of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and the debuting PC Edition of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition above all other action titles.
PES 2014 marks a new beginning for the popular football series, with the new game building upon a completely new system as the basis for its all-new gameplay, AI and control mechanics. New physics routines have created the most realistic control over the free-moving ball, while the new engine also allows for the best ever graphical acuity the series has seen.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 marks the welcome return of MercurySteam’s epic vampire saga, with anti-hero Gabriel displaced in time and left to fight Satan in modern times. A free-roaming camera, new combat mechanics and a fully open environment make Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 one of the most anticipated action games of the current generation. Likewise, PC owners can sample the first game in the series, as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition brings Gabriel’s quest for revenge to a new audience, and includes all available DLC in one value package.
KONAMI will also use the gamescom event to make further content announcements regarding its Pro Evolution Soccer and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow brands.
“KONAMI enters gamescom at a very exciting time in its long history,” said Martin Schneider, General Manager, for Konami Digital Entertainment. “Following the successful relocation, we enter gamescom with a trio of extremely strong titles – and a chance for visitors to Cologne to go hands-on with the all-new PES 2014, the absolutely breath-taking Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, and the PC debut of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition. gamescom is an essential part of the European gaming calendar, and we look forward to showing our hand and unveiling key product details as we move towards launch.”
