Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate Delivers the January Goods
With a name longer title than my list of Hollywood actors I dislike, Konami is prepping us for one hell of a story. If you were wondering just how the lineage is going to unfold, Mirror of Fate takes place 25-years after Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. However, the game is the precursor to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. I’ll wait a moment while you digest that.
This isn’t the first Castlevania reboot to grace a Nintendo handheld, however, it is the first developed by Mercury Steam. Some might doubt the success of the title but it should be noted that the game is being developed by the same team across the board. Mercury Steam developed the first Castlevania: Lords of Shadow on console and sets out to deliver the same success in this middle of the road prequel/sequel. This leaves minimal error for story gaps and it should prove graphically successful in its closed development cycle.
Still not a believer? Check out the newly announced screens below.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate is slated to release March 5, 2013.
