Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate HD Hits Steam This Month
No matter how many times you defeat Dracula, or how many platforms said thrashing occurs on, the dude just keeps coming back for more. For instance: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD will soon be popping up on PC “later this month,” according to a recent statement from Konami.
For those who have been following the Prince of Darkness' story as of late, the original version of Mirror of Fate arrived exclusively for the 3DS about a year ago. Serving as a bridge between two games that would only be available on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, however, it was something of an odd duck, abandoning the series' home consoles in order to tell a connecting tale on a portable.
With Lords of Shadow 2 drawing near, however, fans of the Belmont clan's never-ending struggle with the forces of evil finally had some additional options when it came to playing Mirror of Fate, as an HD-ified iteration eventually arrived on home consoles. That was, of course, followed by the lukewarm launch of Lords of Shadow 2, which will supposedly bring this epic yarn to rest...Excluding story-extending DLC, of course.
But while Lord of Shadow 2 is officially out, the PC crowd never got their hands on Mirror of Fate HD. That's all about to change, as Konami announces and impending launch scheduled for sometime in the next few weeks through Steam.
For those trying to make a proper time line, Mirror of Fate takes place 25 years after the events of Lords of Shadow and tells the story of a couple of Gabriel's sons, Simon and Trevor Belmont. The youngsters aren't aware of their father's fate, unfortunately, and so will learn the hard way as they progress further and further into the Living Castle.
“Trevor Belmont, a knight of the Brotherhood of Light, sets out to avenge his mother's death at the hands of his father, who has returned from years of exile to take up residence in a mysterious castle,” reads the statement from Konami. “The powerful figure that was once Gabriel Belmont now stands as Dracula, a powerful vampire.”
Daddy Drac has apparently declared war against his old compatriots within the Brotherhood, sending out his creatures of the night to turn their lives into a mortal hell.
Players will take on the role of several characters, each with their own abilities and move sets.
“The game offers huge, detailed levels and players will encounter enormous boss fights brought to vivid life within the PC game's stunning HD presentation,” continues to statement. “The PC version also includes online leader boards and the popular Boss Rush Mode, pluss the addition of Steam Achievements.”
Look for it later this month.
