KONAMI today unveiled a new Facebook application that will entice both Castlevania and Facebook fans alike. The Castlevania: Lords of Shadows Challenge is an exciting companion to the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow console game, expanding the realm of Castlevania to the social sphere by allowing users to battle their Facebook friends, unlock special Castlevania content, and build the ultimate viral army of good or evil.
A Facebook exclusive, the Challenge brings the bite of Castlevania to the social scene. Introduced to celebrate the October 5 launch of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the Challenge allows fans to choose, construct, and contest their own virtual army of Castlevania combatants. Swear your allegiance to the ethereal God Mask of the Brotherhood of Light, or the sinister Devil Mask of the Lords of Shadow.
Once your path is chosen, the battle begins. Fight alongside friends or turn against them within an interactive Castlevania arena. Inflict damage, taunt opponents, gain experience points, and unlock Castlevania: Lords of Shadow screenshots, videos, and items. Need more bodies to turn the tide of war? Go viral and recruit new friends to join your army. Want to measure your strength against all others? Compete for the top spot in the leaderboard rankings.
