New 3DS Castlevania on the Way. Possible Lords of Shadow Spinoff?

By Jeffrey Matulef

Konami has revealed a new Castelvania game in the works, according to Dutch website, N1ntendo (translated by NeoGAF user Sadist). The upcoming Castlevania: Mirror of Faith will be a 3DS exclusive, set to be shown at this year’s E3 in two weeks.

The only detail given is that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow producer, David Cox, and director/writer Enric Alvarez are working on Mirror of Faith, suggesting this may be a sequel or spinoff of that game. Since Lords of Shadow ended with a peculiar cliffhanger, the presence of another title in the reboot’s canon bodes well for an upcoming console sequel.

I hope that the 3DS game is still 2D, though. I loved Lords of Shadow, but most 3D handheld games feel like watered down console ports, especially with the 3DS’s lack of a built in second analogue stick. Meanwhile, the 2D Castlevanias have flourished brilliantly on handhelds, and with the most recent entry in the portable line being 2008’s Order of Ecclesia¬†we’re long overdue for a new one.
