The Toy Maker from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate makes a return appearance in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, though neither he nor Gabriel seem too pleased about it. Konami has released footage of the boss fight that occurs when Gabriel meets up with the pudgy amnesiac for all to enjoy, and possibly use as a strategy guide when the game comes out.
Lords of Shadow 2 takes place in modern day, but we get the feeling Gabriel hasn't gotten out much over the past couple thousand years. Had he watched movies like Child's Play, The Woman in Black, or Dead Silence, he'd have known right away that a lover of toys in a spooky castle is just screaming "red flag."
KONAMI Shows Lavish Development Process of Sequel's Arch Foe
El Segundo, CA – KONAMI today unveiled a wealth of assets focusing on the game's creepy Toymaker character.
The Toymaker is a mischievous adversary of mysterious origin first introduced in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, and returns in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, when his macabre lair plays host to one of the game's key confrontations. The new assets showcase the evolution of the character, from initial sketches to full implementation.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 acts as a conclusion to the Lords of Shadow story. The new game is set in a modern city tainted by Dracula's influence and within Dracula's castle itself. It sees a tortured Dracula charged with engaging Satan in battle once again. This epic sequel boasts a vast open-world environment, user-controlled camera and a truly enormous challenge as the world's most famous vampire seeks an end to his immortal existence. His story comes to an end in a suitably shocking circumstance.
