Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH 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 who has now returned as a powerful vampire called Dracula and is threatening to destroy the brotherhood and any who would stand against him. Gabriel (voiced by Robert Carlyle) was 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 its illustrious history. The new game takes place 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow,and acts as a precursor to the highly anticipated Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 which will be released in 2013 for PlayStation®3, Xbox 360® and Windows PC.
The all new two-minute trailer details the combat, platforming and challenges present in the game whilst the stunning 3D locations act as a tantalising taster of what fans can expect next year. With an estimated play-time of around 20 hours, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will offer a suitably deep and lengthy 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.
