Konami to release Castlevania: Lords of Shadow sequel; possible full game reveal soon

*article taken from Eurogamer*

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will launch on Wii U, PlayStation 3, Vita and Xbox 360, according to a new report.

Paul Gale, he who first reported on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, also offered more information on the leaked Nintendo 3DS game Castlevania: Mirror of Fate.

Mirror of Fate is a 2D Castlevania game that has been in development for a year-and-a-half, and features two playable characters and co-op play. It uses the 3DS’ forward-facing camera as a mirror and the outward facing camera for puzzle solving.

Apparently a Wii U version, which interacted with the 3DS version, was in the works before Konami ditched it in favour of a Wii U version of Lords of Shadow 2.

The Wii U version of Mirror of Fate would have been the same game as the 3DS version, with the tablet controller’s touch screen acting as the bottom 3DS screen and your telly acting as the 3DS’ top screen. You were able to use the Wii U’s forward facing camera as a mirror to “capture your reflection and reveal your fate”.

Now, though, Wii U owners will have to settle for a “safer” port of Lords of Shadow 2, which could retain some of the planned connectivity with Mirror of Fate. Both games are being made by Spanish developer MercurySteam and will be unveiled at E3 next month.”

    More Castlevania is always a good thing in my book and with Mirror of Fate and Lords of Shadows being spread out over 3DS, Wii U, and other platforms (for the latter of the two), it looks as though Konami is having the best interest in mind of all the different ‘vania fans. E3 is a mere 2 weeks away and I’m really looking forward to seeing these two and playing them first hand. Thank you all for sharing your interest in both titles. And regarding Star Fox – Metroid: Fusion Saga, if I find out anything on the rumored title before E3, I’ll be sure to put it up on Paul Gale Network. I don’t know if it’s real yet or not, but if it is, I’m sure that Retro Studios will deliver!

    Best,
    Paul Gale

      Thanks for the comment. I played tons of Castlevania on Game Boy systems as a kid and I remember it was one of the games that kept having me go back and replay it :)
