Don't get your hopes up.

A Konami public relations official responded to Nintendo World Report's inquiry on the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate release date. After the game was missing from Nintendo's 2012 release calendar sent out this morning, we reached out to Konami for more information.

Konami's reply stated, "We can't comment on Nintendo's release but more information about Castlevania MoF launch date should be announced soon."

A press release sent out by Konami for their GamesCom lineup last week noted the game would have a 2013 release.

Despite the lack of information today, the game was originally announced as a Fall 2012 release at E3. 

Konami Announces Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate Coming Early 2013

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that the action adventure title Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate will be available in early 2013 exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™system.

"It's been two years since the enormous success of Castlevania Lords of Shadow, and with this next installment, we want to take the necessary time needed to give fans a handheld title unlike any other," said Dave Cox, Producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Head of Product Planning and Development for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate will bridge the storyline to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, also planned to release in 2013.  Both titles will reveal the shocking fate of the Belmont Clan in a dramatic culmination of the Lords of Shadow saga."

Developed by Mercury Steam, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate takes place 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and is a precursor to the highly anticipated and recently announced Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate reveals the story of Gabriel Belmont's descendants, Simon and Trevor Belmont, as they battle their own destiny only to discover their true, shocking fate.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate will be available on Nintendo 3DS™ in early 2013.

Given the impressions a while back from different news outlets saying it needed a little polishing up, I can only see this delay as a good thing.

I see what you did there. 

Also, definitely have to agree with Squalid Pumpkin on this one.

Maybe they're delaying the game to better synch-up with the release of Lords of Shadows 2 next year on top of the extra layer of polish.  Otherwise, I really don't see what they would be running from on the 3DS in the Fall.

Unintentional, but I'll try to incorporate more user name related puns in future.

Let's hope that development of this game is "stayin' alive"!
