MercurySteam's Hideo Kojima-supervised Lords of Shadow utlized and A-list cast of voice actors, most notably Robert Carlyle, Jason Isaacs and the incomparable Patrick Stewart. Now that Lords of Shadow 2 is almost due for release, Konami's released a new trailer that shows off the game's principal cast of characters as well as the actors that play them, including Misfits' Alex Childs and Game of Thrones' own Robb Stark, Richard Madden.

The trailer also shows off some fleeting new glimpses of this latest Castlevania's world, and given that its open-world trappings should make it easy to surpass the original Lords of Shadow's 20 hour campaign, it looks like there's plenty to be excited about – but be warned if you haven't played through the first game, the video contains some incidental if contextual-less spoilers.

The extremely promising-looking Lords of Shadow 2 releases for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 February 25.
