The publishers have us busy updating our calendars today, and now Konami’s weighing in with a release date for “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate,” the sequel to 2010’s “Lords of Shadow.”
We can expect “Mirror of Fate” on March 5th for the 3DS, providing a bridging story between the last game and the upcoming PS3 and Xbox 360 sequel.
After the gut punch of the post-credits ending to “Lords of Shadow,” I’m looking forward to what’s next for poor, cursed Gabriel Belmont. Konami’s already released some story details which will see him heading down a villainous, bitey path (and creating a closed loop with the regular “Castlevania” continuity, it seems), and what remains now is how his Trevor and Alucard will factor into the overall plot. And more importantly, when will we get our upside-down castles, Frankenstein’s monsters, and flea men?
