In a recent press release, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced that Castlevania Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate would be released exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in early 2013.
“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 Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 and Head of Product Planning and Development for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH, according to the press release. “Castlevania Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will bridge the storyline to Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2, also planned to release in 2013. Both titles will reveal the shocking fate of the Belmont Clan in a dramatic culmination of the Lords of Shadow saga.”
The game takes place 25 years after the events of Castlevania – Lords of Shadow and was developed by Mercury Steam. It is also a precursor to the recently announced Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Castlevania Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate tells the story of Gabriel Belmont’s descendants, Simon and Trevor Belmont, as the journey and battle through their destinies to discover their fates.
