Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Faith 3DS trailer includes 2D gameplay

Konami pulled the lid off their first Castlevania title on the Nintendo 3DS today by releasing this new trailer which highlights the story, cinematics, and (towards the end) the gameplay of this highly anticipated 3DS title. From the looks of things so far, we're pretty excited to see how Mercury Steam is able to bring the Lords of Shadow experience down to 2D.

No release date for this title is currently known, but it's somewhat encouraging that this trailer shows as many elements as it does. Not just story, cinematics, or gameplay, but all three, so it may be fairly far along in development. We're really looking forward to seeing more of what Konami and Mercury Steam will be offering up with Mirror of Faith.

    Pretty cool! And happy to see more details about the story! ^^ And wow... was that Zobek talking to Marie? hmm... Zobek, you bastard XD

    If anything, I'm sure the story will be fantastic. I'm extremely confused on how they're putting Trevor and Simon in the mix however. I was always under the impression that LoS was non-canon, but this makes it look like they're trying to tie it into everything, which doesn't really make sense unless they're throwing LoI out the window. Thoughts? And I think that was Zobek. It wasn't Patrick Stewart though, which makes me sad.

    Actually... I don't think that's Zobek anymore. Looking at the video again, not only is the voice different, look at the character design. It has white hair, yes, but a big as long beard, and a much wider and buff physique. Someone in the youtube comments mentioned Rinaldo... And you know what? I think that's a possible, good guess. Also, I don't think this is non-Cannon either, at least, not for the traditional Castlevania lore. This is more like the LoS Universe's take on the Belmont clan, and they have both Simon and Belmont, but not in the same way as in the traditional lore. In the traditional lore, Trevor was at least 3 or 4 generations down the line from the first Belmont that was Leon. Here, they flat out say he's Gabriel's son. And then, Trevor is Simon's Grandfather, and here they show him as his father. Basically, here they trimmed down the Belmont lineage so that the main two Belmonts are closely related XD Which I am fine with, since it does make things less convoluted, and easier to follow.

    Hot damn this looks like it's going to kick some ass. This just became my second most anticipated upcoming 3DS title, after Paper Mario.
