Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate received mixed, but generally good reviews when it was released for Nintendo 3DS back in March. The game combined some elements of classic Castlevania 2D side-scrollers and the combo-heavy hack-n-slash gameplay of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Now, Konami is bringing the mobile game to living room consoles with an HD remake.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD will make its way onto the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as a downloadable title. It will be released on Halloween, October 31. The game features upgraded HD visuals and new features such as leaderboards and a new “Boss Rush” gameplay mode.
Mirror of Fate HD’s release will come just months before the anticipated release of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. A demo for Lords of Shadow 2 is included with copies of Mirror of Fate.
The story of Mirror of Fate serves as a preamble to the events in Lords of Shadow 2. Players take on the role of several characters, including members of the famed Belmont clan. Each character comes with different powers and move sets that will be required to battle the forces of Dracula.
Konami also announced that the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection will be released this Halloween as well. The bundle comes with Mirror of Fate HD and the original Lords of Shadow. The Reverie and Resurrection DLC contend for Lords of Shadow will also be included in the collection.
