Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate confirmed
Nintendo Power’s big teaser for its June issue was for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate. The magazine has an extensive look at Konami’s new 3DS title in its June 2012 issue.
Based on some of the scans floating around (see above), it appears to be a 2.5D adventure made by MercurySteam.
A few pieces of information have made it out from the magazine, though it mainly focuses on Mirror of Fate’s controls.
Players fight with Trevor Belmont’s version of the Combat Cross. Pressing the “X” button will result in strong attacks while the “Y” button yields attacks with a rider range.
Secondary weapons including an electric bomb and boomerang-like glaive are included. These can be accessed with “A”.
Other actions include blocking/dodging with “L” and grabbing enemies with “R”. Koanmi is promising deep combat mechanics.
Mirrors of Fate will feature the return of light and shadow magic, experience points for combo unlocks (such as throwing foes into the air and to the ground), and more.
Expect more details soon.
