This gameplay video from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 shows off the Toymaker, whom you may remember from the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow DLC called Mirror of Fate.

The full video is a bit lengthy (9+ minutes) but it contains an entire boss encounter, so what better way to preview what you'll be getting yourself into should you decide to play Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2?
to learn more, follow the jump. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be out on February 25th.
*I call dibs on the concept of Ben Franklin as a Batman villain.
