Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 picks up right after the first game began. But, if you want the complete story, you'll need to play the 3DS spin-off Mirror of Fate.

"But gee, I don't have a 3DS," you might be saying. "If only they made an HD version for console," you might wish in this hypothetical scenario. Well, it appears your wishes may be coming true.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate review: Pale reflection

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate review: Pale reflection

In the past two decades, the Castlevania name has gotten two separate critically-acclaimed revivals: 1997's Symphony of the Night, and 2010's Lords of Shadow. The mouthful of a game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate attempts to marry the two.

But the game never truly decides what it wants to be, and that indecision ultimately leads it to meander aimlessly and fail to live up to either legacy.

Lords of Shadow dev has 'no intention' on continuing Castlevania

Developer MercurySteam's gritty take on the Castlevania franchise proved to be a tremendous success for Konami. According to the publisher, Lords of Shadow is the most successful Castlevania game ever. But, MercurySteam is keen on ending the series on a high note, with Lords of Shadow 2 concluding not only the trilogy, but their involvement with the franchise.

"Our intention is to tell our story and then move on to other things," producer David Cox said. "We have no intention of milking the series any further than that."

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate announced, is 2D/3D hybrid for 3DS

What is Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate (other than a mouthful)? When the title was leaked, many feared that the upcoming 3DS game would move away from the franchise's 2D heritage. The Castlevania games were among the best titles on Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS--so Konami wouldn't want to abandon such a winning formula, right?

Mirror of Fate is an interesting marriage of Lords of Shadow and the classic 2D Metroidvania games. The game is played on a 2D plane, but features the combat of its 3D console counterparts.
