LOL, rehost.

So I'm not seeing anything in common with that teaser image for this cover. Can anyone explain that?

Mudkips asked this before I edited this post, btw.

Is it the 3DS Castlevania?

EDIT: Now I can see it. Nice cover art.

This is not 2D - but 3D

and its full name is Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate, so probably a spin-off

3DS Castlevania. Didn't know it too was being handled by MercurySteam though. That's good news!

Castlevania: Lords of Shadows - Mirrors of Fate

Looks like that's the full name of the 3DS game to me.

It's 2.5D

To be fair, the Mirror of Faith news was leaked, so this was probably meant to be the big reveal.

From the original leak, this is supposed to be a bridge between LoS and LoS2. So, it is a sequel, but it's not the three-course meal sequel.

Sounds like a sidestory that takes place in the LoS universe.

Yes, it was leaked, but this is the first official announcement - give them credit where it's due.

Lords of Shadow had lovely art, I don't think you could really go after it for that, this one image aside.

I'd go after it because it was an extremely drug out, C-tier God of War clone that ran at 20 FPS.
