New Castlevania: Lords of Shadow title confirmed for 3DS

Filed under News

Oh hey, a rumour that actually turned out to be true! *ticks checkbox*

That’s right–the latest issue of Nintendo Power has outright confirmed last week’s rumour regarding a new Castlevania title that was purportedly in development for Nintendo’s systems.

As suspected, the new 3DS iteration in the long-running franchise is titled Castlevania: Lords of Shadow — Mirror of Fate, and will serve as a prequel to the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (which has not been locked in for any specific platforms as of yet).

The new title looks to incorporate 2.5D gameplay and will star Castlevania III protagonist Trevor Belmont at the forefront of its plot.

You can probably expect to hear more about the title at Nintendo’s E3 press conference next week, so stay tuned!
