Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate Story Trailer Tells Trevor's Tale
Konami has released a trailer for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate that focuses on the game's story. Through an extended cutscene from the full game, we learn that how crappy Trevor Belmont's life is.
Trevor Belmont is a knight of the Brotherhood of Light. The Brotherhood informs him that his father, Gabriel Belmont, is responsible for killing his mother. That's pretty shitty by itself. However, there's more: Gabriel is now Dracula, the vampire and sworn enemy of the Brotherhood.
He feels that it's his responsibility to kill Gabriel. He bids his wife and son Simon farewell, stopping to give his heir a mysterious mirror pendant. Then he tells his wife to flee if he's not back by dawn.
Obviously things aren't going to turn out too well for Gabriel. Simon is one of the playable characters in the game. As an adult, he sets out to kill Dracula as well. We already know that Gabriel Belmont is the main character of Lords of Shadow 2, though, so Simon's not going to make it either.
All in all, it sounds like this game could be pretty depressing. It's rare enough to play a game where the main chaacter dies. This might be the first game I've ever encountered where a father and son both perish.
