The latest issue of Nintendo Power reveals Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate is in development for 3DS at Mercury Steam.

This is likely what that recent Konami teaser site is hinting at.

GoNintendo summed up some details:

  • Involves Trevor Belmont.
  • It features deep combat mechanics.
  • You will fight with Trevor’s version of the Combat Cross.
  • Press ‘X’ for strong attacks; ‘Y’ for wide-reaching attacks.
  • Secondary weapons include a boomerang-like glaive and an electric bomb. These are used with the ‘A’ button.
  • You can grab enemies with the ‘R’ button; ‘L’ is to block and dodge.
  • The game involves light and shadow magic returns.
  • Earning experience points unlocks new combos, including: launching enemies into the air, smashing them to the ground, and more.
  • Expect skeletons, axe-wielding undead, and other enemies.

      @Chaos Raiden: I’m sure the PS3 and 360 will gets its own Castlevania game.

      I was hoping for a 2D Castlevania game :(

  • Devoted

    I’m curious… can’t wait for gameplay (but I’m in deep need of a new 2D metroidvania game…)

      @Devoted:
      Yes please…:x Part of the information leads me to believe this will play like the Playstation/Saturn/GBA/DS Metroidvania games. I’m still not crazy over the idea of having Mercury Steam working on this, but if Igarashi is somehow involved in this game’s production, then I still expect greatness.

      Let’s see how it goes from here.
