Konami has produced a new trailer detailing the developer's working relationship with Dracula himself in the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

While we won't get any insight into the numerous HR complaints raised against the dark lord, Producer Dave Cox and MercurySteam's Enric Alvarezdo explain just why the world's most notorious vampire was chosen to be the primary playable character, and how he was designed to look and play in the final entry to the Lords of Shadow series.

The developers go on to detail the contribution of actor Robert Carlyle (from 28 Weeks Later and Trainspotting fame) as the voice of Dracula, before going over their own favourite Dracula related movies:



Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2 is due out on the Xbox 360 on February 27th, 2014. Be sure to read up on the announced special editions of the game.
