Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD now available on PSN/XBLA
Just in time for Halloween, Konami Digital Entertainment today announced an all-new HD edition of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate is available now for digital download on the PlayStation Network for $14.99.

Developed by MercurySteam, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD is set 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and acts as a precursor to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which will be released this February.
The HD update tells the story of Gabriel Belmont’s descendants, Simon and Trevor Belmont, as they battle their own destiny only to discover their true, shocking fate. Trevor Belmont, a knight of the Brotherhood of Light, sets out to avenge the death of his mother by his father, who has returned from years of exile to take up residence in a mysterious castle. The powerful figure that was once Gabriel Belmont now stands as Dracula, a powerful vampire. Dracula has declared war upon the Brotherhood and thus the scene is set for an epic showdown between father and son.
In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD, players take on the role of multiple characters, each of whom has unique abilities acquired whilst playing during the game’s different eras. Featuring a huge array of combos and an intuitive strategic combat system, players can use their characters’ weapons and magical abilities to take down anything in their path. The game offers huge, detailed levels and players will encounter enormous boss fights brought to vivid life within the HD presentation. This will also include online leaderboards and the much requested “Boss Rush Mode,” a fight to the death against all the game’s bosses.
