"We got caught in a s***storm"

The makers of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow hit back.

In October 2010, a little-known Spanish developer, backed by a veteran Konami employee finally given his shot at the bigtime, released a reboot of one of the most beloved Japanese-created games of all time. Despite concern among the franchise's most ardent fans, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow launched to critical and commercial acclaim. The overlords at Konami were pleased.

It's Halloween, and quite fittingly I'm a little terrified. The kids of Lewisham aren't dissuaded from acts of random terrorism by a fistful of sweets, so tonight I'm turning the lights off and cowering in a corner hoping they don't come knocking on my door. Fun!

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate review

"An enormous structure has collapsed on top of me. Now I will never return home or know love from another."

Take note: when disaster struck in the middle ages - or whenever it is that Castlevania's meant to be set - people were generally rather stoical about it. Stranded by shipmates? Skewered by cursed arrows? Crushed by a tumbling wall? Time to bust out the pen and ink and write an even-handed little message about the whole affair.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate is filled with these sorts of missives. They're encountered every few minutes as you ramble around the dark corridors of a huge, terrifying stately pile where nasty things lurk in the rafters and there are block-pushing puzzles waiting down in the basement. The letters are a joy to come across, really. Even when they're doing little more than elaborating on the backstory, they offer the aftermath of intense violence or loss, picked over with the idle distance of someone describing why the number 7 from Margate failed to arrive in a timely fashion that morning. "I've been gored by a narwhal. How tiresome!"

Castlevania: Mirror of Fate Preview: MercurySteam's Old-School Sequel

About five minutes into my interview with Castlevania producer David Cox I thought he had given me loads of exciting details about Lords of Shadow 2. It'll be set an open castle. You'll play as four characters. You'll be able to take notes using your stylus. Wait a minute... That doesn't sound right.

"Are we talking about Mirror of Fate or Lords of Shadow 2?" I ask.

"Mirror of Fate."
