Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate Due Early 2013

Konami has announced the release window for the Nintendo 3DS exclusive, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate was announced alongside Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, and will take place 25 years after the first title, released over two years ago. However, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will not follow Gabriel Belmont, the protagonist of the first title, but instead follow his descendants, Simon and Trevor Belmont.

I personally loved Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, despite the fact that it was rather linear. I wonder if Konami will be able to secure an all-star cast similar to the previous iteration.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate is due for release early in 2013.
