Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate UK release date confirmed

Castlevania makes its 3DS debut in March

Nintendo have confirmed the UK release date for Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate. The first Castlevania 3DS game will be released in the UK on 8 March.

March is set to be a big month for Nintendo fans with Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon, Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training, Rayman Legends, and Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate all set to be released during the month.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, one of our picks for the best 3DS games of 2013, is set 25 years after the events of Xbox 360 and PS3 game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and tells 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 murder of his mother who was killed by his father, Gabriel Belmont. Gabriel is now the powerful vampire Dracula and has declared war upon the Brotherhood, setting up a showdown between father and son.

You play as characters from the Belmont family across different eras, each of whom has unique abilities and skills, as you explore the castle and encounter enormous bosses.

Nintendo is publishing the Konami-developed game in Europe and Laurent Fischer, Managing Director at Nintendo of Europe, is happy with the partnership: "There is a rich history of Castlevania games launching on Nintendo consoles dating back to the original Castlevania game which launched on the NES in the 80s. We are really proud to be partnering with Konami once again to bring the latest instalment in the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow franchise to Nintendo 3DS."

Is Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate on your shopping list?

    Why, yes it is! From what I've seen of the gameplay footage it looks awesome, even if the story cutscenes look a bit ropey. Still, I can't say no to a classic side-scroller with lots of massive bosses to fight.
