Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced it will release Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ system this Autumn.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be shown for the first time at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event in Los Angeles. The game has been developed by Mercury Steam, and is set 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and also acts as a precursor to the highly anticipated and recently announced Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate reveals the story of Gabriel Belmont’s descendants, Simon and Trevor Belmont, as they battle their own destiny only to discover their true, shocking fate. Trevor Belmont, a knight of the Brotherhood of Light, sets out to avenge the death of his mother by his father, who has returned from years of exile to take up residence in a mysterious castle. What was once Gabriel Belmont now stands Dracula, a powerful vampire. Dracula has declared war upon the Brotherhood and thus the scene is set for a cataclysmic showdown between father and son.
In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, players take on the role of the multiple characters, each of whom has unique abilities and skills across different eras. Featuring a huge array of combos and a deep strategic combat system, players can use their characters’ weapons and magical abilities to take down their evil foes. Fans will traverse through immensely detailed levels and encounter enormous boss fights, all within a unique Nintendo 3DS setting that features high resolution 3D polygon graphics, and side scrolling areas that segue seamlessly into full 3D battles.
“Following the enormous success of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, we wanted to provide fans with the next installment in the Lords of Shadow universe, showcasing all the capabilities that the new Nintendo 3DS platform has to offer,” said Dave Cox, Producer on the title and Head of Product Planning and Development for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “Two years later, we are proud to announce the highly anticipated Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, a stunning 3D action adventure title that will give players an unrivaled, intense handheld gaming experience, while shedding light on the lineage and true destiny of the Belmont family.”
