Konami confirm Boktai 2 is in the works

Konami have confirmed that they're working on a sequel to Boktai, the light-sensitive vampire-hunting RPG from Hideo Kojima, the man behind the Metal Gear Solid series.

Boktai 2, or Zoku Bokua no Taiyo to give it its full Japanese title, will also feature a light sensor and again features undead-slayer Django. This time round, the light detecting aspect of the game is said to play an even more significant role, while Django has also gained the use of a sword. Blimey.

Boktai 2 is released in Japan this summer while Boktai 1 will finally reach UK shelves in March
