New Castlevania Title Confirmed for 3DS

Nintendo Power with big reveal

Last week we shared a rumour that a new Castlevania title was in development for 3DS: it seems that the rumour was true, as it's now been revealed in Nintendo Power. It's to be called Castlevania: Lords of Shadow — Mirror of Fate, which isn't the snappiest game title that we've heard.

Details from the magazine, according to some, suggest that it will be a 2.5D title, perhaps moving on from the conventional 2D perspective of the Game Boy Advance and DS entries. There's talk of impressive combo moves and it will apparently feature Trevor Belmont, with events leading up to a home console sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, which graced PS3 and Xbox 360. Details on the sequel platforms are unknown, so there's hope that it'll feature on Wii U.

With a magazine reveal out of the way we'd expect Konami to share more at E3. Until then, what do you think of a handheld Castlevania following the Lords of Shadow series, and are you interested in trying a 2.5D perspective?
