Dubbed the "companion" game to Konami's two Lords of Shadow games in the gothic action series, Mirror of Fate first launched in March 2013 on 3DS before undergoing a price drop to $30 in August. The HD version landed on PSN and XBLA right around Halloween, and was also included in November's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection bundle. Our review of the 3DS version of Mirror of Fate found the game equally challenging as it was unevenly paced.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will launch February 28 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, at which point Konami will drive a stake through this pre-order deal's heart. Metaphorically, of course.
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. is offering the full version of its acclaimed Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD to those pre-ordering Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 via PlayStation®Network.
Originally released last year, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD is a companion piece to the epic Lords of Shadow series, introducing Trevor and Simon Belmont to the canon. Mixing platform and action elements, Mirror of Fate HD follows Trevor as he storms Dracula's castle, having pledged to end the Vampire's unholy existence. Tragically, their fates are inextricably linked, culminating in an epic climax to be revealed in the forthcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
Anyone pre-ordering the game digitally via PlayStation®Network will automatically receive Mirror of Fate HD free, allowing fans to witness the introduction of key characters – such as the mischievous Toymaker – who returns to taunt Dracula in the long-awaited Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. The special offer will run from today until the sequel's launch on February 28th.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be released on Playstation®3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC, and is a fitting conclusion to the stunning series. Dropping Dracula into a modern day setting where he is charged with preventing Satan from bringing about the apocalypse, the new game boasts a fully-interactive city and castle environment, an adaptive weapon system, magical powers to develop and an all-new fully-controllable camera delivering a deep adventure game with tons of depth.
