Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will centre upon 15th century vampire hunter Trevor Belmont, and is an explorative third-person action adventure in a similar vein to that of the God of War series.
Such news goes against previous rumours that the game would return to a 2D side-scrolling gameplay experience.
