With rumors of a new Castlevania for 3DS showing up at E3 floating around, Castlevania fans are already pretty happy. Now it looks like things might get even better.

A new photo and website reveal seem to point towards a sequel to 2010’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. The photo’s ominous Gothic scenery definitely invokes thoughts of Castlevania. But far more interesting is the website.

The site’s URL reads “The Dragon Returns”, and a date of 5/31/2012 adorns the top of the page. As the sleuths at Game Informer point out, the Romanian word for “dragon” is “dracul”, which sounds an awful lot like this guy. Meanwhile, the source code for the webpage contains gems like “CLOS Teaser Page” and “Dare you face the evil darkness? It is written that the creatures behind that door will return very soon to claim the souls of your loved ones, and send you straight hell! Be aware!”

Konami’s pre-E3 conference is on 5/31/2012, so it’s likely that’s when we’ll find out the true meaning of this tease. For now, let us know in the comments if you’re as excited for a Lords of Shadow sequel as I am!
