3DS game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate now has a formal 8th March 2013 release date.

This impressive-looking 2.5D platformer picks up the Lords of Shadow story 25 years after the acclaimed console game. Serves as a precursor the flamboyant new Lords of Shadow 2, too.

The story revolves around Trevor and Simon, who aren't market traders from East Enders but actually descendants of Gabriel Belmont, knight turned folk legend.

I wonder if Christopher Lee is in it.
