Rumor: Castlevania: Mirror of Faith is a 3DS exclusive; Lords of Shadow veterans involved
Originally, Mirror of Faith was going to be cross-compatible between 3DS and Wii U, but Konami scrapped plans to bring the game to both the console and handheld, opting instead to bring Lords of Shadow 2 to Wii U in addition to PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Castlevania fans had plenty of options during the Nintendo DS's lifetime. From 2005's Dawn of Sorrow to 2006's Portrait of Ruin to 2008's Order of Ecclesia, there was plenty of Castlevania to go around on the handheld.
And, if Dutch site N1ntendo is to be believed, then it looks like that trend may continue on the DS's successor. According to the site, the 3DS's first Castlevania game, titled Castlevania: Mirror of Faith, will be revealed at E3 next month. The title was first discovered when it appeared on Konami's E3 appointment schedule, as noted by a poster on NeoGAF.
Lords of Shadow was an ambitious entry in the Castlevania series
Aside from the above, the only other info that was released was that David Cox (Producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow) and Enric Alvarez (Director and Writer of Lords of Shadow) are involved, but it is unknown if they are taking on the same roles that they took on for that game. If Cox and Alvarez are involved, then it's likely that Lords of Shadow's developer MecurySteam may be involved as well.
If N1ntendo's report is true, then we shall learn more about Castlevania: Mirror of Faith in just two weeks, when E3 rolls in. For some additional reading, check out our Castlevania: Lords of Shadow review.
