Been buying a lot of new 3DS games recently now that the system has tons of great games available to purchase? Can’t afford yet another title and want to be part of an interesting promotion? Well you may just be in luck, since Nintendo of Europe is launching the ‘So Many Games!’ promotion and letting anyone who registers three games get another one for absolutely free! Best of all, the games eligible for this promotion are some of the best new games around, as shown by this list: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Nintendo 3DS version) Luigi’s Mansion 2 Fire Emblem: Awakening LEGO CITY Undercover: The Chase Begins Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity […]
Excited for the game and want to see more of it? Well it seems like you’re in luck, we not only now have the first 85 minutes of game footage (uploaded by Youtube user Nintendomination), but also footage of things like all the possible endings. First of all, here’s the first 85 minutes of the game: Above: Video by NiNTENDOMiNATi0N on Youtube. Next up, here’s some footage of the game’s various endings. Yes there are massive spoilers beyond this point, so don’t watch any of these videos if you don’t want to see how the story unfolds. And yes, the person who recorded this (terryforever84 on Youtube) used a standard camera rather than any kind of capture card or screen recording equipment, […]
Yes, here are two new trailers for Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate. The first one is a trailer called the ‘Simon’s Story trailer’. You can probably guess exactly who that focuses is on, so see it here: The second one is a general overview trailer which can be watched here. Lots more footage of the game, so definitely check it out: Well, those are the new Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate trailers. Hope they were interesting to some people and got a few others to check out the game, and I hope that the success of this game on the 3DS proves that the Castlevania series still has a welcome home on Nintendo handheld consoles for […]
Seems like it’s not just HD consoles that this game was considered before prior to being made for the 3DS, since Konami were at one point considering releasing the game on the Playstation Vita instead. Here’s the original quote confirming it: The Vita could have run the game no problem, and we did seriously consider it as a [target] platform. But when we saw the game on 3DS and how it looked with the 3D, it made us realise we could never replicate that on another system. Seems like the graphics and 3D effect had a pretty important role in getting this game made for the 3DS. But do you know what I think also probably had a minor effect? The […]
Remember how a few weeks ago Capcom announced that Resident Evil Revelations was being remade into a HD game for the Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360? Well interestingly enough it seems like this isn’t the only 3DS exclusive that might be getting this treatment. No, Konami have said they’re interested in the possibility of turning Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate into a game for HD systems as well. Here’s what they had to say about the idea: We created everything in high definition – all the textures, all the levels, high-poly models, everything – and we kind of shrunk it all down into the 3DS. Then we lost bones from characters, you know, we dropped the resolution […]
Konami has just recently released the box art for the US version of the title, and it can be seen here: As you can see, it looks pretty nice, and should definitely catch the attention of any Castlevania fans or 3DS owners wanting a new game for their collection. What do you think of this box art? Is it what you expected? Does it do the game justice?
Have to say, what better time to release a new trailer for a Castlevania game than halloween considering the whole theme of the series! But yes, Konami have officially released this halloween special trailer of the game showing off more of the anticipated title. Enjoy!
There’s some concept art showing different locations that you’ll be visiting in game as well as a bunch of screens and such showing parts of the game itself. You can see both of these things below: As you can see, the screenshots are looking fairly impressive. In fact, you know what they kind of remind me of? The DS Castlevania games like Dawn of Sorrow. The art style for the buildings and locations just seems a bit similar if you ask me. There’s also a bit of resemblance to Castlevania Dracula X in some of the screens, mainly the one of the castle keep in front of the full moon. Still, it’s nice the designers of the game seem to […]
Sorry about the delay in getting these ones up, they were technically available online for a few hours today but there were many other things to write about first. But here are some nice new Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate screenshots: As you can tell, the castle’s general architecture is still as over the top fancy and complex as it always was. That’s one heck of a creepy looking door. Flying dragon like heads try to kill the protagonist. This looks a lot less scary when you remember that Super Mario 3D Land has a fairly similar looking monster with similar attacks. No idea what kind of magic is involved here, but the way the enemy seems to […]
Well, in the US at least, there’s still a tiny amount of hope that the game could be out prior to then in Europe or Australia. But unfortunately Nintendo of America have confirmed it’s later release date, as said here: Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon will now be available in the first half of 2013 in the Americas Have to say, this does annoy me to be honest. Yes the Wii U is also coming out about that time, but I’m not purely interested in Wii U games and I was looking forward to this game more than New Super Mario Bros U. It’s not all a total loss, Paper Mario Sticker Star doesn’t seem to have been delayed as of […]
