New Castlevania game coming to Nintendo 3DS
The latest issue of Nintendo Power has revealed the next game in Konami’s perennial series, Castlevania. The double-subtitled game, titled Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, is coming to Nintendo 3DS, and it’s being developed by MercurySteam, the same developer behind 2010’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. The new 3DS Castlevania will feature some of the side-scrolling gameplay we have come to know and love, but this time there is going to be an increased focus on combat and RPG-esque character progression. Why not look at some screenshots right now? So far, we’ve got no firm release date, but Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be playable at E3 next week.
Nintendo teases launch titles for Wii U to Facebook fans
Because we just can’t get enough hype for Wii U, today the official Wii U Facebook page posted a cryptic status that officially revealed… not much. Nintendo posted the following:
“Guess what the initial game releases will be for Nintendo’s new home console, Wii U? Soon we’ll scratch off to reveal the names! ▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒ ▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒ ▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒.”
Are the blurred out words really meant to stand in for Wii U launch titles? If so, they clock in at 33, 27, and 19 characters respectively. It seems we’ll have to endure the agonizing wait for E3 in order to find out what’s really going to launch with Wii U.
