We only got a brief taste of the new Castlevania game for Nintendo 3DS, Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate due out this fall. So far, it is a pretty standard side scrolling hack n' slash. It is a real button masher - which I like. The thing that makes this Castlevania special is the 3D aspect. It gives an otherwise standard Nintendo game a more epic scale - tough to do considering the DS's... shall we say basic approach to graphics. You only get a good look at the monsters when you stun them, lift them up, and knock the skeletons into pieces.
