Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow – Mirror Of Fate Is Officially Headed To Your 3DS

Man, I’m getting good at this whole prediction thing. We were just talking about E3 and what we should expect. One of the major topics was if we should be expecting a Castlevania 3DS game. Well, in a leaked copy of next month’s Nintendo Power, it’s been revealed that we can expect just that.

Officially titled Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, the MercurySteam Entertainment developed game will have you taking over as Trevor Belmont using his version of the Combat Cross. It will be 2.5 D where the camera will go isometric at times, but will primarily play out as a side-scroller.

Not much has been revealed outside of some of the combat mechanics, which promise to be fairly deep for a 2D game. However, we can expect the standard strong attack/wide attack format with secondary weapons (such as the boomerang-like glaive and electric bomb) mapped to the A button. Light and Shadow Magic will also return, and players will use experience points to unlock new combos.

To say I’m excited for this is a bit of an understatement. Lords of Shadow was a criminally under-appreciated game, and while I was hoping for a sequel on consoles, this news will have to do….for now.

Check out the Nintendo Power cover below, and let us know your thoughts.

Now, for a shameless plug: Stay tuned to the site next week as we will provide detailed coverage of each press conference, as well as the Expo’s many news stories.
