Konami is the latest publisher to commit to October’s Eurogamer Expo – and they’ll be bringing three games for attendees to play. Def Jam Rapstar, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Saw II: Flesh & Blood and will all be on offer to Expo-goers, giving them the chance to try them out before they’re released in autumn.
Def Jam Rapstar can be simply summed up as an urban music version of Singstar, with some top hip-hop stars lending their tunes to the game. But it’s more than that, and will also feature community tools that’ll allow players to upload videos of themselves rapping and dancing while playing, so wannabe hip hop stars take note!
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow brings the series into the world of 3D action for the first time and big things are expected from it. The main character, Gabriel, is voiced by Scottish actor Robert Carlyle.
Finally, Saw II: Flesh & Blood, is based on the film series, taking place between the second and third movies. We can no doubt expect it to feature some gruesome puzzles!
Managing Director of Eurogamer, Rupert Loman, is pleased Konami will be attending the expo:
“It’s great to have Konami onboard with such a fantastic line up, particularly one that demonstrates the eclectic mix of games that will be on show and, most importantly, playable.”
