Nintendo of Australia has today confirmed that the upcoming action title Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be launching across Australia and New Zealand in early March for the Nintendo 3DS. The new title will be offering various enhancements including the handhelds 3D effect plus a seamless transition from side-scrolling to 3D battles.
In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, you take on the roles of multiple characters from the Belmont family across different eras, each of whom has unique abilities and skills. Featuring a deep strategic combat system and a huge array of combos, you will explore immensely detailed levels and encounter enormous boss fights. The action takes place within a unique, atmospheric setting that features high resolution 3D polygon graphics, and side-scrolling areas that segue seamlessly into full 3D battles.
The game takes place 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and reveals the story of Gabriel Belmont’s descendants, Simon and Trevor Belmont, as they battle their own destiny only to discover their true, shocking fate. Trevor Belmont, a knight of the Brotherhood of Light, sets out to avenge the death of his mother by his father, who has returned from years of exile to take up residence in a mysterious castle. Gabriel Belmont, who is now the powerful vampire Dracula, has declared war upon the Brotherhood and the scene is set for a cataclysmic showdown between father and son.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be available across Australia and New Zealand on 9th March exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. You can check out some of the screenshots below for a glimpse at what to expect.
