With regard to his role in producing the hit game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Cox said, "I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be given the opportunity to lead the development of a Castlevania #cvlos" and "I never imagined it would become the best selling Castlevania game in the series history either. #cvlos."
