A bevy of Belmonts are coming to the 3DS with this bridging story between Lords of Shadow and Lords of Shadow 2.
Screens and plot details after the jump.
The only thing more interesting than the fact that we’re getting a new side-scrolling Castlevania game this year for the 3DS is the knowledge that Mirror of Fate will provide a whole extensive backstory for the Belmont clan, starting with Lords of Shadow’s cursed lead Gabriel, all the way down to Simon and Trevor.
Mirror of Fate takes place 25 years after Lords of Shadow as Gabriel returns to his hometown take up residence in a mysterious castle. Oh, and he’s calling himself Dracula now. Trevor, a knight of the Brotherhood of Light and Gabriel’s son, is out for revenge after his father kills his mother and declares war on the Brotherhood.
No word on how Simon will be worked into the story, but the overall plot will have the three generations attempting to grapple with the curse of the Belmont clan, which is apparently to have to fight a Dracula.
The action will be split between 2D side scrolling action as well as 3D sequences, all using polygons for the characters.
Screenshots can be found below, and we can expect Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate” on shelves this fall for the 3DS.
