Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD coming to PS3 and X360 this October!
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate is going through an HD makeover, slated to release this October 29th! Coming to PS3 & X360!
Formerly a 3DS exclusive! 'Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate' is a side-story that bridges the gap between the original entry 'Lords of Shadow' & the next & final entry 'Lords of Shadow 2'. It tells the origin story of 'Trevor Belmont & Simon Belmont' and their eternal struggle with the new Prince of Darkness that rose up at the end of the first 'Lords of Shadow'!
Konami pleasantly announces that 'Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate' will be coming to the PS3 & X360 this fall as a re-mastered HD version of the original game and will be slated for an October 29th release! No mentioning of a Wii U and/or PC version were made...
Aside from the obvious superficial eye-candy, the HD port will be including extras such as 'Online Leaderboards', 'Boss Rush Mode' & an exclusive demo of 'Lords of Shadow 2'! Konami also confirmed that they will also be releasing a 'Lords of Shadow Collection' on October 29th, which will include the original 'Lords of Shadow', the Reverie and Resurrection DLCs (Lords of Shadow DLCs) AND Mirror of Fate HD. Price has not been given, as of yet!
Here's the quote from David Cox himself....
He also mentioned on his twitter (@CastlevaniaLOS) handle...
So there you have it folks! What do you think of the sudden announcement and the sudden '3DS games being ported to HD consoles' trend? Are you excited to play more 'Lords of Shadow', whether you already own it on 3DS or not? Feel free to express your thoughts down at the comments below!

THE CAT-BIRD-THING IS DEAD MAN, LET IT GO! *cries 5ever*
My pleasure sir, spreading knowledge is what i'm here for *cough, The Last Guardian is still in development, cough*.
It's right in the article! Right above his tweet snapshot....or look AT THE TWEET SNAPSHOT!! xD
What is his Twitter handle?
Hey man, thank you! Much appreciated! :D
http://www.siliconera.com/2012/01/20/resident-evil-revelations-developme... "The development team started by running Resident Evil 5 on the 3DS. Impressed by the impact it had, the team moved on to developing Mercenaries 3D. At the same time, Revelations was developed in parallel, with experience gained from both games benefiting one another"
Check the 'source', it's at the bottom of the article....there's isn't much to go about though, at least when I posted this blog on the 19th.
There are more pictures though! I would recommend following David Cox on twitter, if anything.
I was just taking an educated guess but that is fascinating to hear. Do you have a link to an article the details this in full?
My best estimate is why came to the 3DS first and not the Vita at all is simply because of the install base between the two units. The Vita has been struggling ever since it came out of the gate and while the 3DS had a rough going in the beginning it has exploded in popularity and is poised to overtake even its predecessor if hasn't done so already. It's a matter of numbers just like any other business.
Why not the Vita, then? I just thought it was dumb to release it on the 3DS since neither of the other 2 games are coming to any Nintendo platforms.
Actually, the story behind Revelations was that Capcom was testing Resident Evil 5 on the 3DS (which actually worked, after some optimization), and they decided to build a Resident Evil game exclusively for the handheld. There's a bit more to it than that, but that's the gist of its conception.
Besides, at least Revelations was a good game.
I certainly hope no one is thinking of buying the worst CastleVania game ever made... IN HD! What utter trash that game was.
That, and they screwed over anyone who ever bothered with the 3DS version for $40.
The same could have been said about Capcom's Resident Evil Revelations, unless they were using the 3DS as an comparatively inexpensive platform to develop and ship the game on to test their audience's response to it before porting it to the bigger platforms like the 360 where they were have more to gain from by tapping into another audience where they have more to gain.....and also more to lose. This is kind of like when a TV network does small market testing for a new TV show pilot and shop it around and see if it tests well and if it does do well then they will have it go nationwide to all the affiliates. That seems to be the big thing right now.
I approve of this.....highly
Meh, it never really made sense for them to release the original game on 3DS anyway. This is what they should have done to begin with.
Same! It will probably be cheaper than buying the standalone DLCs and MoFHD separately.
I suspect it will be $40, like every other collection...it's just two games, and one of them is PRETTY old!
Kaneco got out of the kitchen long enough to make a blog, and it's not about Saint Seiya?! *MindBlown*
Also I am SOOO picking up the Collection. Never bought the DLCs for LOS1 so getting them and MoFHD in one go sounds great! I suspect it'll be $40-$50.
