Aside from taking out Dracula's minions, your cast of heroes will also need to keep an eye out for environmental obstacles, some of which require finesse with the control pad, while others require you to keep a sharp eye out for levers and switches.
We have been promised that cranking the system's 3D slider to full will give each area much more depth and allure. That, mixed with cinematic camera sequences during some triggered attacks, should give Mirror of Fate just enough visual potency to feel like a current-gen title while maintaining its classic style.
We haven't seen a lot of updates other than concept art since E3 last year, which means the final product of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be a surprise to almost everyone. Only by getting our hands on it will it be revealed whether it is a good surprise or a disappointing one. Every Castlevania fan is surely hoping for the former, and we'll let you know the outcome in early March.
