E3 2009: Kojima to Revive 'Castlevania' UPDATED

It sounds like some sort of nerd dream come true: Hideo Kojima, master of such video game classics as the Metal Gear series and Snatcher, will be overseeing the development of a new Castlevania title on Xbox 360 and PS3.  More after the break.

Titled Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the game will be developed by MercurySteam (who proved their horror chops with the flawed-but-nasty Clive Barker’s Jericho), and will hopefully do a 3D Castlevania right.  “Forget what you know about Castlevania,” says producer Dave Cox, “This is what a next-gen Castlevania should be.”  Yeesh, how many times can I type Castlevania in one blog post?

Our brothers-in-arms over at G4 should have high-def footage of the game in action up soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
