Castlevania Mirror of Fate destined for Europe March 8


Konami has pinpointed the exact date within the "March" launch window for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate's European release. You'll be able to get reacquainted with the Belmont family, and its new extended Dracula branch, on March 8.

You can start that process now in this new trailer, which tells the story of Trevor Belmont, and why he goes on a quest to destroy Dracula. You'd think his possession of a whip called "Vampire Killer" would be motivation enough, but there's more to it than that.
