Amazon sent out word of a Castlevania: Lords of Shadow limited edition
a bit early this week by releasing a mockup image of the package. Now the retailer has boldly tweeted
(if one can do something called "tweeting" in a bold manner) release info for the limited edition, pricing it at $79.99 on PS3
and Xbox 360
. The image is exactly the same as this week's mockup, meaning that we will
get that nice hand-painted artwork on the box (that looks a lot like the work of longtime Castlevania
artist Ayami Kojima
) along with the soundtrack and artbook, that were shown before.
The Amazon listings also show a Halloween release date for both the standard and limited editions, though we're hesitant to confirm any release dates from retailers as "official" without checking in with Konami -- which we're doing now.
