New images and a 9-minute video (above) showcasing the Toy Maker, a new character in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, have been released! The new video presents gameplay footage of an epic boss battle with the Toymaker, who looks set to be a challenging and highly-memorable adversary to Dracula.
He regularly changes forms, making the player continually reassess and readjust their strategy accordingly. We also gain some insight into who the Toy Maker is, and the part he plays in Dracula’s quest (although those who have played through Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will already be familiar with the character).You can learn a little more about the Toy Maker’s background by reading the flavour text below…
Gandolfi’s most outstanding pupil, loved and admired for his magnificent toys, was fooled by the evil Walter Bernhard. A prisoner in his castle and victim of a demonic curse, the Toy Maker has never stopped making tools of suffering and animating the bodies of the dead for hundreds of years.
One day, one of his puppets moved him deeply, to the point where he wanted to give it his own heart. He gave that small wooden boy, who he loved like a son, the only organ that had not been corrupted, on the condition that he protect it from the darkness looming over the rest of his being.
His body remained in a glass coffin, forgotten by all, except for his loyal puppets, who still await his return.
“Your face seems oddly familiar. You must forgive me, I’m a little confused you see. I suppose in time my memory will return.”
