One of Konami’s most anticipated upcoming releases is Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate. This 3DS exclusive serves as a narrative bridge between Lords of Shadow and Lords of Shadow 2 and is set 25 years after the original. The game features side-scrolling gameplay that takes place on a 2.5D plane.
Mirror of Fate was originally expected to be released later this year but Konami has now confirmed it will only be out in “early 2013” due to extra development time being allocated to the project.
“It’s been two years since the enormous success of Castlevania Lords of Shadow, and with this next installment, we want to take the necessary time needed to give fans a handheld title unlike any other,” said Dave Cox, Producer of Lords of Shadow 2 and Head of Product Planning and Development for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH.
The publisher also unveiled the suitably gothic box art for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate.
