In their own words:
Konami out for blood and good beats at Eurogamer Expo
Gruesome Saw II playable along with latest in Castlevania series, plus Def Jam’s awesome Hip Hop music game at this year’s Eurogamer Expo
Brighton, England, 28th July 2010. Eurogamer, Europe’s leading independent games media specialist, can announce Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH will be featuring an amazing trio of titles for the Eurogamer Expo at Earls Court on October 1st – 3rd, 2010.
Def Jam Rapstar, Saw II: Flesh & Blood and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be headlining for Konami on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 giving Expo-goers an exclusive chance to try them out before they release this Autumn.
Def Jam Rapstar is the first true interactive Hip Hop music game. The ultimate emcee experience for video game consoles, Def Jam Rapstar is the only music game that focuses exclusively on Hip Hop, you and your social networks. With more than 40 of the greatest Hip Hop songs available at release, from A Tribe Called Quest’s ultimate posse track “Scenario” to Ludacris’ hit single “Stand Up” and Chipmunk’s “Chip Diddy Chip”, Def Jam Rapstar allows you to be the star by rhyming, using your console camera, and uploading your video to the fully integrated Def Jam Rapstar community at www.defjamrapstar.com.
The eagerly awaited sequel, Saw II: Flesh & Blood, invites players back into Jigsaw’s twisted world, and promises all-new stomach-twisting traps and puzzles, more visceral combat, and an all-new storyline that takes place between the second and third movie. As such, players can delve deeper into the horror and mystery of Jigsaw’s terrified subjects.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is an epic 3D action title set in a ravaged Europe of the middle ages. The planet has been devastated by a powerful magic. The souls of the dead are trapped on our earthly plane unable to find peace, and inhuman creatures of nightmare now roam the Earth, wreaking havoc. Having witnessed his wife Marie (voiced by Natascha McKelhone) murdered at their hands, Gabriel (Robert Carlyle) pledges revenge against those responsible: the mysterious Lords of Shadow.
Rupert Loman, Managing Director at Eurogamer said: “It’s great to have Konami onboard with such a fantastic line up, particularly one that demonstrates the eclectic mix of games that will be on show and, most importantly, playable.”
