Konami Responds to Game-Crashing Bug in Castlevania

October 14, 2010 Written by Corey Schwanz

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow producer David Cox has openly acknowledged that a rare, game-crashing bug, is currently plaguing his game. Fret not Vampire Hunters! It will be fixed soon.

As previously reported, there is a massive error that causes crashing in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and corrupts the user’s save data. This issue only exists on the PlayStation 3 version of the game. David Cox has addressed this issue on his Twitter account and had this to say:

“We are looking into it. This issue only affects a very small number of users. We have a fix and are currently testing it. Patch incoming. To be safe make sure you periodically back up your save.”

It is wonderful news to hear that Konami has found the issue and is actively working to change it. What is probably even better news however, is that backing up your save data to an external source is a viable option to keep your save data, should you be affected by the problem. At least it isn’t a glitched door or level that leaves the game unplayable. Stay tuned to PlayStation LifeStyle to find out when the patch goes live, and you can get back to your game.
