Dracula has finally woke up, and the world isn't the simple place that it used to be in this launch trailer for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

Based on the last time we saw him, things were rather on the downside for Gabriel Belmont. Now that he has had a few centuries to think some things over, he has figured that it's just best to embrace the way things are as he goes to war with the Brotherhood of Light and tries to prevent the ultimate evil from returning to the world.

This launch trailer focuses on the aspect of blood, which makes sense in light of Gabriel's recent diet change. The blood allows Gabriel to gain all sorts of supernatural power, such as his Shadow Whip made of blood and Void Sword he uses to make more of it flow.

Unfortunately, blood is also one of Gabriel's biggest problems. Now that his son has sworn to kill him, Gabriel seems to have his back against the wall. As this trailer proves, never try to corner a master vampire -- they can shapeshift. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is available today on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
