Kojima Productions influence on Castlevania

The Producer over at Mercury Steam currently finishing development on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow expresses the involvement Hideo Kojima, the legendary games designer, had on the project.

Regarding developing the lead character Gabriel Belmont, “When we started work, Gabriel was a fairly standard barbarian, but Mr Kojima went to great lengths to explain how, as the hero, players will need to emphasise with Gabriel if they are to care for his quest,” said Cox.

Cox also went on to state “He has been involved more in a mentor role than fully hands-on, but has seen the game at every stage of its progression ….He always trusts my judgement, and is a brilliant ally – and who wouldn’t want someone like Mr Kojima helping out and lending his expertise!”

Being a huge fan of Kojima you don’t need to tell me twice *Preorders*. For those wanting a taste of the game now, there may be an option.
