Vamping: Castlevania Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate HD

On Steam later this month

If brevity is the soul of wit - and what reason to doubt arras-dwelling Polonius? - then Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow: Mirror Of Fate HD is the most witless game title since Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army. Of course, if brevity truly is the soul of wit then you could also argue that the first paragraph of any article in this esteemed periodical is a hollow parp from the joy buzzer of a dead clown. Let's move on.

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow: Mirror Of Fate HD is coming to PC later this month, having made its society debut on the Nintendo Several Screen before porting across to the last-gen MicroSonys. Although it is canonically related to the 3D Lords of Shadow games, Mirror Of Fate is a more traditional side-scrolling Castlevania. And therefore, to my eyes at least, far more interesting.

If you didn't watch the entire trailer, skip to the last ten seconds. And then wish that you hadn't.

The console releases received mixed reviews, although the trailer manages to find plenty of cherry-like quotes to decorate itself with.
