See the big swords of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2's launch trailer

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 features a formidable collection of swords to go along with its impressive cast of characters, according to the game's launch trailer, which was released by publisher Konami today.

A variety of long blades can be seen in the trailer, whether they're being pointed ominously off to the side, plunged into the chest of a winged beast or engulfed in demonic flames. And with permutations of the phrase "blood is," the trailer offers glimpses of the story in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

At the end of the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow — spoiler alert! — Gabriel Belmont turned out to be Dracula. In this follow-up, he's stuck in the present day in a weakened state, and a previous acquaintance offers him a way out of his torment.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be released tomorrow, Feb. 25, on PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Xbox 360. For more, check out our recent interview with producer Dave Cox on Dracula's similarities to The Sopranos protagonist Tony Soprano.
