Summing up today news from CastleKeeper's FB - official site of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate is now active (it looks like it's a full official title after all). You'll find there some story and heroes details, screenshots and trailer. Enjoy! Unfortunately there wasn't any new information about the game on Nintendo's press conference.

Seventh Anniversary of Creating CastleKeeper Website!
I'm pleased to announce that yesterday (1st June) there was the seventh anniversary of creating CastleKeeper's Chronicles - The World of Castlevania website. Everything begun in 2005 with the help of my friend who let me to use space on his server. The same year editorial staff of Inner World of Final Fantasy propose me their support and CK is a part of IW ever since. That's when present layout was created by SenTineL.

Through the years, with help of my friends from IW and a few Castlevania fans from Poland, CK has been growing, but never actually reached it's full potential. Sometimes it haven't been updated for months and today is full of better and worse articles, also lacks a lot of planned texts and materials.

More than two years ago I started to write news in English, hoping to reach wider audience. That's when I started to get to know more and more fans from abroad.

Now CK is mostly website with Castlevania news with many unfinished elements. For me it's "just" a hobby, but the one created with passion and care. And the one I always love to return to. Due to my limited free time, even after long breaks. Are there any plans for the future of CK? Sure, but I've written about them many times already in the past, so I don't want to make promises again.

Maybe CK will be one day something more, than just a news site, maybe not - time will tell. I really appreciate all your interest and support. Without you there wouldn't be a need for such website. I'm always open to your feedback. So once again thank you and see you on CastleKeeper, Castlevania Dungeon, Chapel of Resonance or any other place created by fans to fans!

And thank you Konami for announcing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 exactly that day. It was like huge birthday gift. :)

Play It Again, Drac - LoS Early Footage with Simon Belmont
Almost one year ago MercurySteam published film showing how their adventure with developing Lords of Shadow has begun. Only hours left to official preview of Lords of Shadow 2 on Konami's Pre-E3 Show, so let's go back in time and see once again, how this all started.

Description on CastleKeeper's YT channel: An early footage used by MercurySteam to get from Konami a "green light" for their vision of 3D Castlevania. Features Simon Belmont instead of Gabriel, who replaced him later, when developers decided to create unique story (reboot/reimagination) rather than next remake of original Castlevania game. Film was first time shown publicly after release of Lords of Shadow and both DLCs, on Gamelab Conference 2011 in Barcelona (where the game won eight awards, including Best Art Direction, Best Score and Best Game).

As Dave Cox, producer of the game, stated on his Twitter (1st July 2011) - "All done in a few weeks under a tight deadline but shows Mercury Steams [old] engine to good effect."

Mirror of Fate - Nintendo Power Preview!
Castlevania: Mirror of Fate

Long story short - the link here leads to the post on Castlevania Dungeon forum, where user soma555 attached scans from Nintendo Power showing article about Castlevania: Mirror of Fate! So it's true - MercurySteam is expanding their vision of Castlevania (Lords of Shadow universe) through new, 3DS title.

Simon and Trevor Belmont will be playable characters! (two more are yet to be revealed, each with its own time period in history) Screenshots look interesting - 2D gameplay (with occasional shifts to 3D) with beautiful 3D graphics. There will be more exploration and non-linear castle, with some secrets based on our activities in other time periods.

Eponymous Mirror of Fate is a device showing every hero his vision of the future, revealing his destiny, which he need to overcome or become a slave to. There's also one mysterious character in the story - "the lost soul".

The game's climax will "set up the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2". That force me to speculate (!), that we'll play LoS2 in 2013 (probably October), with Mirror of Fate available in 2012 (probably October as well).
