Those eager to try out the latest chapter in the Belmont saga will be able to whip out their 3DS and download the demo later this month. Konami today announced a playable demo for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be available on the Nintendo 3DS via download in the Nintendo eShop on February 28th. The full game will also be available for download via the Nintendo eShop on launch day, March 5th.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate reveals the story of Gabriel Belmont’s descendants, Simon and Trevor Belmont, as they battle their own destiny only to discover their true, shocking fate. The free demo will showcase intense whip combat, deep platforming, exploration and spectacular visuals of the highly anticipated title. Players control Trevor Belmont as he takes down the various creatures and minions of Dracula’s fortress. Gamers can also master the combat cross, deal damage with the boomerang, collect hearts and knight scrolls, and face off against the mighty executioner in a battle to the death.
Developed by Mercury Steam, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate takes place 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and is a precursor to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
