Castlevania: Mirror of Fate Rumored for 3DS

A new Castlevania is now rumored to be coming to the 3DS and should be revealed next month.

Update: The title was mistakenly titled Mirror of Faith when it is actually Mirror of Fate. I have changed the article to reflect that. Thanks to Roy Lagendijk for pointing it out!

The Castlevania series has had a fantastic run in the handheld market. What started with a shoddy port for the Game Boy has ended up giving Castlevania a home for more and more fantastic entries such as Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclesia. This long running franchise has kept fans longing for more over the years and it looks like we might be getting some more of what we love at E3 next month.

As reported by Dutch website N1ntendo, the title has appeared for an appointment scheduled during the Electronic Entertainment Expo next month. There isn’t much information to go on as of yet, but it is also rumored that David Cox, the producer of Lords of Shadow, will be involved with the title.

With David Cox involved in the title, many are speculating if the game will be related to Lords of Shadow in some way. It isn’t hard to believe that perhaps Mirror of Fate might be a side story set during the same time period as Lords of Shadow since Cox is involved. There isn’t much information to go on yet, but if this proves true, Castlevania fans who own the 3DS will be in for a nice surprise at E3 next month.

If this rumor ends up being true, do you want this to be a fully 3D Castlevania title or a 2D one? I am quite partial to the traditional 2D entries but also really enjoyed Lords of Shadow. What do you hope the game is like?

    This isn’t a rumor. Konami asked the site to remove that post (that’s why the current link doesn’t work anymore) because this game is supposed to be a E3 suprise, what means their whole post was true. It also seems that the site made a spelling mistake in the game title (maybe fate instead of faith?). I’m Dutch btw and the site is pretty trustable.

      Actually, the post is back. They found different evidence that the game is coming, which they use to justify having the article online. Also, they misspelled the title, as it’s ”Mirror of Fate”, and not ”Mirror of Faith”. That pretty much concludes the update.

      • Roy Lagendijk says:

        Oh um, I suppose I should mention that the different evidence is a website for the game, So.. Yeah.

    The series is at it’s best in 2D on the ds. I can look at the map and stats without pausing the action.

  3. Carlos says:

    I cant wait for it to come out if it is true. Its been long overdue for a new Castlevania game to come out.

    I can’t wait, love the Castlevania 2D games. However it would be easy to give some nice 3D backgrounds on the 2D though or something like that, I’m sure they’ll find some way to build the 3D effect into puzzles or what not.
