Nintendo Power outs Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate for 3DS


Last week it was rumored that two new Castelvania titles would be coming to Nintendo consoles, which really excited me. But rumors are rumors after all, but Nintendo Power is another thing entirely. Looks like a new title is indeed incoming in the form of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, and the game will be hitting exclusively on the 3DS. From GoNintendo:

  • Deep combat mechanics
  • Involves Trevor Belmont
  • Fight with Trevor’s version of the Combat Cross
  • Strong attacks with X
  • Wider-reaching attacks with Y
  • Secondary weapons like the boomerang-like glaive and electric bomb
  • Use these with A
  • Grab enemies with R
  • Block and dodge with L
  • Involves light and shadow magic returns
  • Earn experience points to unlock new combos
  • These include launching foes into the air, smashing enemies down to the ground and more
  • Includes skeletons, axe-wielding undead and more

I’m really looking forward to picking this game up, and will have impressions from the title if it is shown at E3. Who else is excited by this reveal?

  1. I SINCERELY HOPE that Konami includes controls for people (like myself) who have the Circle Pad Pro and want a game experience in line with God of War, Darksiders, or Devil May Cry. One can hope…..

  2. Oh, good. Instead of creating an all-new 2D Castlevania game a la CVIV or even the Metroidvania games they’re making another mediocre God of War ripoff with the Castlevania name slapped on it.

    This is a travesty, IMO.

    I’ll the game a chance, sure, but LoS was NOT a Castlevania game.

  3. I just hope that it will be a 2D version…

  4. @Gojiguy – Wow, you obviously feel strongly here!! I don’t understand how creating a game similar to GoW or DMC is any less original than creating another “Metroidvania,” but maybe that’s just me. (Mind you, I LOVED Castlevania: SotN, and thoroughly enjoyed the GBA and DS outings.)

    Again, I would still REALLY ENJOY being able to play this game (as a GoW/DMC clone) in 3D, on a portable!!

  5. While I was hoping for a Wii U reveal, this is still bad ass but sadly Lords of Shadow 2 is not a U game and Mirror of Fate isnt a 3DS game with cross game connectivity. Regardless this game will be awesome! Trevor Belmont!

  6. I was suggested this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my trouble. You’re wonderful! Thanks!
