Castlevania: Mirror of Fate has been confirmed by a Nintendo Power cover story, setting the stage for a likely unveiling by Konami at E3 next week.

Though the cork was popped a bit early with Konami's leaked E3 schedule, a 3DS Castlevania game has now been confirmed. Titled Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, the new game is said to feature Trevor Belmont as the main protagonist, making for his first starring role since Castlevania III on the NES.

The game was confirmed by a Nintendo Power cover story (via GoNintendo). Trevor will use his own version of the Combat Cross, and the balance between strong short-range and weaker wide-range attacks seems reminiscent of Lords of Shadow. That only makes sense, considering the earlier rumors stated that LoS producer David Cox and writer/director Enric Alvarez were both involved in the 3DS sequel.

Konami may have been planning this as a surprise at E3, but if so, they didn't count on print media blabbing all over the place. We can still look forward to the official unveiling, though, since it's likely to show off some actual game footage

      My worst fears confirmed. All the 3d castlevanias are uninspired and boring. But for some reason they sell well enough for Konami to keep producing them.

      Hope it doesn't sell and Konami realizes 2d is the way to go for castlevania.

        I agree that the 3d Castlevania's have been kinda crap but I burnt out on the 2D Castlevania's a long time ago.

          Order of Ecclesia was one of the better ones on the handhelds.

        I don't see why it's impossible to have a franchise break out of its established formula and succeed? That's not to say 3D Castlevanias are ever that great, but why couldn't they be?
