Konami has announced the development of new titles from some of its key franchises, as well as official release dates for some highly anticipated games.

As rumoured earlier this week, Castlevania: Lords of Shadows 2 is on the way for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.

Castlevania: Mirror of Fate for the Nintendo 3DS is also in the works.

Elsewhere, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is under development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U. It is expected early in 2013, according to Konami.

Pro Evolution Soccer 13 was also announced, with Konami touting gameplay improvements which included a dynamic first touch function which allows greater ball control, and response defending where the AI shadows the player rather than attacking the ball. Intentional fouls in the penalty box have also been added.

Finally, the Zone of the Enders HD Collection will be available on Xbox 360. A pre-launch Metal Gear Rising demo will be included with the game. The launch date has not been disclosed.
