Castlevania: Mirror Of Faith

Finally Castlevania is coming to the 3DS.

Quote:
A new Castlevania game for 3DS, subtitled Mirror of Faith, is to be revealed at E3, according to Dutch site N1ntendo.

As spotted by a NeoGAF poster, the title popped up in its appointment schedule for next month's gaming expo. There's no other information offered, other than that David Cox, who produced well-reviewed 2010 home console release Lords of Shadow at Spanish studio MercurySteam, is involved.

If true, that might mean a change of direction for the handheld line of Konami's long-running vamp-slaying series.

Koji Igarashi has traditionally been the man responsible for the franchise on portables, masterminding a run of critically acclaimed platform/RPG hybrids starting with Harmony of Dissonance on GBA back in 2002, right up to the phenomenal Order of Ecclesia on DS in 2008.

His last Castlevania was the poorly received multiplayer spin-off Harmony of Despair on PSN and XBLA.

Could Mirror of Faith be a side order to a full Lords of Shadow sequel? MercurySteam composer Oscar Araujo let slip that work on a follow-up was underway back in October 2010. Then in August, Cox Tweeted that he was currently working on two new unannounced projects.

It'll be 2d with 3d or 2d. (confusing eh?)


Glad I got my 3DS purchase out of the way.

Yeah I'm thinking the same thing. That game was awesome. Would have never expected a small unknown developer from Spain could pull that off. Ofcourse Kojima had a hand in it so that might explain something :p

It better be stage based. I'm getting tired of metroidvania traversing back and forth.

The new thing is 3D graphics with 2D gameplay.

It works wonder on Sonic generations and Shinobi, so i hope they go with that. With that said, im not a fan of the series so i await to be impressed.


On that note... OMG is konami developing a game that isnt metal gear solid or a crappy Silent hill outsource? They are working on impressing me already.

It's being developed by Mercury Steam the developers of Lords Of Shadow.

Quote:
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.

I thought that Konami Japan was handling development internally.

Another western-developed CV. *sigh* Oh well... There goes that.
