Why 'Lords of Shadow' wasn't 'Castlevania: Lords of Shadow' at first

Being Dave Cox, head of European development for Konami, can't be an easy job. For one, he's not Hideo Kojima, so he's already got that going against him. Worse yet, he's had to tow the company line and let his upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow languish out of the spotlight while Castlevania...

Judging by the use of the German title for Broken Sword, we decided to try Amazon.de to check these dates against their database, and they match.

Wii Fanboy Review: Castlevania Judgment
