Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate on 3DS gets gameplay details and Halloween trailer
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate is coming to 3DS thanks to Mercury Steam and Konami early next year. Today, the duo gave us a handful of new gameplay details as well as a Halloween trailer and screenshots.
CLOS - MOH tells the story of Simon and Trevor Belmont, descendants of the fallen Gabriel. In Mirror of Fate, a prologue level allows users to control Gabriel once again before his fateful transformation.
Developed by Mercury Steam, the developers of the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Mirror of Fate mixes "intense combat with deep exploration elements." What the developer has tried to do with this 3DS epic is to showcase "the same aesthetic and gameplay that made Castlevania: Lords of Shadow the most successful Castlevania game in the series' illustrious history."
Set 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Mirror of Fate serves as a precursor to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. This handheld entry in the series has an estimated play-time of around 20 hours, and "will offer a suitably deep action adventure experience, and a graphical tour de force."
According to the Konami presser, the following two-minute trailer "details the combat, platforming and challenges present in the game, while the stunning 3D locations act as a tantalizing taster of what fans can expect next year."
PS. If you haven't played Lords of Shadow and like a challenge, you might want to check out my review from a couple years back.
