End New trailer and info June 7

Rumor no more. Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate has been officially announced for the 3DS via Nintendo Power. The game will star Trevor Belmont and feel feature deep combat mechanics, light & shadow magic, and much more. You can view scans for the game below. If you haven't played it already, you may want to play Castlevania Lords of Shadow for the PS3 and Xbox 360 because this sounds like it's going to continue the story line established in that game.

Thanks to @anon_mastermind for the heads up!

IGN said:
The latest issue of Nintendo Power is out, and some subscribers have already started to receive this month's edition. So what's on the cover? None other than that rumored Castlevania game for 3DS the internet has been buzzing about.

The game is called Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate. Try saying that 10 times fast. The magazine reveals that Mirror of Fate's Belmont of choice will be Trevor Belmont. He will fight using his version of the Combat Cross, Gabriel's weapon from the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

Other small details unveiled by the magazine (thanks to GoNintendo for the above scan) include the fact that light and shadow magic will be returning from the original Lords of Shadow. Using the L, R and face buttons, players will be able to attack with various weapons, grab enemies, block and dodge. Earning experience points will unlock the ability to execute combo moves, like launching enemies into the air, smashing them into the ground and so on.

For all your Belmont needs, keep it locked on IGN.

That trailer kind of isn't my style. It's talky and overly serious!

I want to be excited for this game, but the footage that Nintendo that's been shown seems framey iffy. Whither, Iga?! Whither, 2D?!

I was getting tired of Metroidvanias regardless. So this game is a godsend as far as I am concerned. Lords of Shadows was also a good game (if not really a Castlevania one).

His whip attacks hit like everything on the screen...getting really tired of this God of War style where you simply can't miss.

Still, looks more interesting than I expected. I'll keep an eye on it.

It just occurred to me after watching the new trailer that, potentially major spoiler, Alucard and Trevor Belmont may be the same person in this new timeline. What do you guys think? Please spoiler tag as necessary.

So I guess there are "no plans" for Lords of Shadow 2 on Wii U...

*sigh* I don't get it.

I've never played a Castlevania game before. People say the series is amazing and that Konami did a great job with the first 4 games.
I'll keep an eye for this babe. Looks very fun and nice.

Haven't you been reading message board forums for the past 10 years or so? Nintendo's 3rd party support on consoles is terrible! People only buy Nintendo consoles for Nintendo games!


Never...played.... a Castlevania game before?!?

Sir, you are hereby ordered to turn in your Gamer Card and must cease and desist any and all other game playing until you finish at least three of the games from the series.

I'll play through Castlevania 1, 3 and Super Castlevania 4, JUST because of that little comment.

I won't play the 2nd one because everybody bitches about the day-night system and say it's overall not a very worthy sequel. And I want to have some darn good first impressions.

You're going to play the 1st, 3rd and 4th games, eh?

Hah, definitely in for a challenge. I'd say skip Castlevania 2 and fit at least one of the Metroidvania style games in there... you have to play Symphony of the Night and the Dawn of Sorrow games!

I agree, but I think it's also important to play the classics first. That way he can get a really good feel for where the series "comes from" so to speak. After that, I would definitely recommend getting the "Metroidvania" ones and giving them a run-through or two.

The old-school classics are much easier to get a hold of, which is a plus. They're all on Virtual Console. The Sorrow games are harder to find, and if he only owns Nintendo systems, Symphony of the Night is impossible to play.

There really is no SOTN love on any Nintendo platform, huh? What a shame...

But, yeah... agree with skipping Simon's Quest? Better off fitting in some Bloodlines.

You know, I've never played through Rondo of Blood and it's on Virtual Console now, isn't it? What am I doing with my life?

It's interesting how many people dislike Castlevania II. I was never big into the series as a kid but II always seemed to be the most "popular" one. But I don't necessarily mean that anyone I knew actually stated liking the game, just that it was the one in the media the most, the one most people seemed to own, etc.

I'm sure it was pretty cool in its time (I didn't own it as a kid), but now? Meh... many other games do what it was trying to do so much better.

Where did I hear about a fan project trying to go back and improve it by taking out a lot of the annoying elements?
