Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate looks to be a bridge for the franchise in more ways than one. It bridges the stories of Lords of Shadow and Lords of Shadow 2, and it also looks to bridge the old-school platforming of the franchise with the more 3D-centric combat of Lords of Shadow.
The latest trailer for the title from G4 shows off the game and reveals some exciting new features to boot. One, is that Alucard I spy? Two, the platforming puzzles look to bring elements back from the 16-bit glory days of Super Castlevania. Three, the game promises 20 hours of gameplay (jeepers!). That’s a lot to get excited about. The best, however, comes after the title smash, and that’s the Symphony of the Night fan service that’s delivered with just one little line.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be released in 2013 for the Nintendo 3DS.
