New Castlevania from Lords of Shadow team outed for Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo 3DS to finally get its own Castlevania game.

Nintendo 3DS fans may get what the system has been sorely lacking since its launch last year: a portable Castlevania. Konami's latest – and unconfirmed – Castlevania game reportedly comes from not from the team responsible for many of the side-scrolling "Metroidvania" style games, but from Spanish developer Mercury Steam.

Dutch web site n1ntendo.nl reported earlier today that Castlevania: Mirror of Fate will be unveiled at E3 2012 (or just before at Konami's pre-E3 event). The game is reportedly being made by the team responsible for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the 3D action-adventure game that hit the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010.

n1ntendo says that Lords of Shadow producer David Cox and director Enric Alvarez are involved in the development of the 2D game.

Cox responded to fans on Twitter today, saying that he could not comment on rumor or speculation. But he implied earlier that n1ntendo's report was "misinformed" in some way.

Konami owns the domain names castlevania-mirroroffate.com and castlevania-mirroroffate.net, both of which were registered by Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH earlier this year. Both redirect to alex-shepherd.com, another Konami-owned domain that refers to the protagonist of Silent Hill: Homecoming.

Polygon has contacted Konami for comment on the matter.
