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?
