As I’m sure many of you have heard, ‘Reverie,’ the first of two planned DLC packs for Castlevania: Lord of Shadow has been delayed until the end of the month . To promote the upcoming delayed DLC, the folks over at Konami has released a single screenshot along with a message to fans who are eagerly awaiting the DLC pack. You can view both of these below.
Dear Castlevania fans,
The team at MercurySteam is working diligently to create the best possible DLC with “Reverie”. We apologize for the delays and will make sure to update you as soon as the release date is finalized. Our Castlevania fanbase is very important to us and we want to take every possible step to ensure you enjoy the new DLC. Until then, check out this brand new screenshot from “Reverie” and be sure to come back often for more new content! We appreciate your patience and continued support for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

As far as the premise behind ‘Reverie,’ Gabriel again returns to the castle to help Laura, who is a former servant of the vampire Camilla. As a result of the death of the vampire Queen, Gabriel is now forced to restore balance to the universe and wipe out this new ancient evil that invades the land. Sounds like pretty stock fantasy stuff to me. Granted I’m not much of a Castelvania player, but I really had a hard time getting into this game, as it mixed the worst aspects of God of War and Shadow of Colossus in a way that only an antiquated blender that thinks it knows what the ‘hip’ kids are into could. Anyway, the game will be available for 800 Microsoft points ($10) on Xbox Live or an equivalent amount in the PlayStation Network Store.
