'Castlevania: Mirror of Fate' release date announced, new trailer

By
Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate will be released in Europe on March 8, Konami has announced.

To celebrate the announcement, a new trailer has been released exploring Trevor Belmont's story.



The video sees Trevor Belmont gift his son Simon with a pendant that contains a piece of the Mirror of Fate, before embarking on a quest to kill Dracula.

The Nintendo 3DS exclusive will take place 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and act as a prequel to the upcoming console sequel Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

Players will be able to switch between the three characters at different points of the story, with each character possessing unique skills and abilities. For example, Trevor is said to use light and dark magic, while Simon makes use of various sub-weapons.

While the three characters have unique traits, the trailer shows that they will also share new skills they did not have in previous games, such as Alucard using a whip to swing from chandeliers.

The game will take place across a large side-scrolling map similar to past Castlevania games, though the environments and characters will use 3D polygons more similar to Lords of Shadow.
