Konami has announced Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition for PC. In Europe, the game will launch via Steam on August 27 and at retail on August 30. North American release dates have yet to be confirmed.

Releasing almost three years after the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, the Ultimate Edition will feature the main game and two DLC add-on chapters, Reverie and Resurrection. In addition, it promises to offer enhanced 1080p HD graphics, run at a solid 60 frames per second via recommended spec, and trophy integration through Steam with cloud saving.

We said in our original review: “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow reinvigorates the franchise by borrowing from other games, adding its own wonderful magic system, and ratcheting up the epic factor to ludicrous degrees. It’s huge in scope, length, and depth, and it’s polished with obvious love and passion.”

Madrid-based studio Mercury Steam is currently working on Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, but not Wii U.

    For anyone who has yet to play this wonderful it now dammit! I've never played much of the old Castlevania games, but LoS is easily one of my favourite games this gen, and it far surpassed any expectations I had of it before playing.

    Get out of town. I finished this game four times on PS3. The soundtrack alone is worth a playthrough. Might have to pick this up on Steam...

    Wow, and here I was thinking about how I should finish this game!

    Hmm. Never been a fan of castlevania. Maybe i'll keep an eye on this though.
