Just in time for Halloween, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today unveiled a brand new trailer and gameplay details for the action adventure title Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate.
The epic Nintendo 3DS™ title tells the story of Simon and Trevor Belmont (voiced by Alec Newman and Richard Madden respectively), both descendants of Gabriel Belmont (voiced by Robert Carlyle). Gabriel has returned as a powerful vampire called Dracula, threatening to destroy the brotherhood and anyone who stands against him.
Gabriel was also revealed to be the prince of darkness in the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and an all-new prologue level allows users to control Gabriel once again before his transformation.
Developed by Mercury Steam and mixing intense combat with deep exploration elements, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate showcases the same aesthetic and gameplay that made Castlevania: Lords of Shadow the most successful Castlevania game in the series’ illustrious history.
Taking place 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, this game is also a precursor to the highly anticipated Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.
The all new two-minute trailer details the combat, platforming and challenges present in the game, while the stunning 3D locations act as a tantalizing taster of what fans can expect next year. With an estimated play-time of around 20 hours, the title will offer a suitably deep action adventure experience, and a graphical tour de force on the handheld.
The game’s orchestral score by award winning composer Oscar Araujo is also showcased, adding to the suitably gothic atmosphere in a tale that explores the bonds of family and inescapable destiny.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be available on Nintendo 3DS™ in early 2013.
