It recently seemed a rather baffling omission, but it appears that Konami and MercurySteam are finally tying up loose ends. It’s just been confirmed that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD will be coming to Steam, finally giving PC players the middle chapter of the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow saga, which wrapped up recently with the release of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 a few weeks ago.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate originally released exclusively for Nintendo 3DS, and combined the open-ended exploration of the series’ former Game Boy Advance and DS entries with the fast-paced combat of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. It was also an opportunity to introduce familiar Castlevania heroes into the rebooted canon, namely Simon Belmont, Trevor Belmont and Alucard.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD was a downloadable console re-release of the game that allowed Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players to enjoy a streamlined, visually-boosted build of Mirror of Fate, complete with achievements/trophies. It was also offered for free to anyone who digitally pre-ordered Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s PlayStation 3 edition from the PlayStation Store, though is currently priced at $14.99 on both consoles.
It’s presumed that the upcoming Steam release of Mirror of Fate HD will retail for the same $14.99 price, and it will definitely include online leaderboards, a Boss Rush mode, and of course, Steam achievements, according to Konami. Unfortunately, Konami nor MercurySteam has announced a release window for the PC port of Mirror of Fate HD at this time, beyond the confirmation that a PC build is finally coming.
