Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is the upcoming sequel to the reboot of the Castlevania franchise. With much anticipation for this title, Konami has released a new video on YouTube, but it is different than you might expect. Rather than any game footage, it is a behind the scenes look at the recording of the soundtrack at the iconic Abbey Road Studios.
Using the largest ever orchestra for a video game soundtrack, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s recording process was a very long one, as it spanned multiple weeks. They aimed to show the conflict that Dracula feels through the sounds of the music, which was better captured by the use of a full orchestra.
Check out the video below to see the process that the team went through to perfect the soundtrack at the studio best associated with The Beatles.
