Conception II Videos – Meet Serina and Narika

Two more Conception II videos are here. First is the brash, in-your-face, 3rd-year student Serina, who uses the strangest weapon I’ve ever seen (it’s called a kick gun, and it’s some kind of wearable leg laser). She also has a little bit of a complex with her small stature and goes to pretty incredible lengths to fix it.

Then there’s Narika, the ultra-shy class Vice President who has brilliant ideas, but lacks the self-esteem to back them up. Fortunately she’s a little more confident in the dungeons, with one of the strongest attack stats in the game and deadly earth elemental magic.

Alucard, the turned son of Gabriel, has shunned human life for many years, choosing to hunt only creatures of the night. The DLC takes place just before the apocalyptic events of CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2, where Alucard readies for his father’s return and the forthcoming battle against Satan. As the plot unfolds, it begins to reveal how the lone vampire is inextricably linked to his father’s fate.

The new trailer shows the many moves and skills that Alucard offers, and gives a glimpse into the new locations and story ‘Revelations’ adds. ‘Revelations’ takes place within the epic world seen in CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2. Playing as Alucard, gamers must discover the legendary vampire’s secrets, unearth the true extent of his involvement in Dracula’s story, and set in motion the events of CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2. The DLC expands the incredible story of the recently-released sequel, with the fate of the Belmont clan unveiled. Alucard has his own unique, powerful abilities, including use of the Glaciem and Igneas powers, in addition to vampiric abilities which allow him to transform into a wolf, a swarm of bats and even turn back time. Blood also fuels capabilities, as drinking the blood of enemies intensifies Alucard’s immortal powers.
