Konami's latest portable Castlevania game is no longer coming out this fall.

Konami officially confirmed the delay of Castlevania: Lord of Shadow - Mirror of Fate to early 2013 in North America in a press release today.

Suspicion of the 3DS game's delay arose when it was not on Nintendo's 3DS fall release list. When we contacted Konami regarding the situation, they didn't confirm or deny the delay, merely saying that information was coming soon. At Gamescom, Konami announced a 2013 release date for Mirror of Fate in Europe.

From developer MercurySteam, Mirror of Fate is set in the world set up by 2010's Lords of Shadow. Players control four different characters throughout different time periods.

So beyond no Monster Hunter, now no Castlevania this year. Christmas time is looking pretty bleak right now.

And no, the Wii U doesn't help, because it doesn't have any exclusive games that one must have Day 1.

because it doesn't have any exclusive games that one must have Day 1.

In your opinion, of course. Many people, including me would disagree. New Super Mario Bros. U and ZombiU alone both look great and are exclusive to Wii U and are launch games. Pikmin 3 may or may not be launch, but it took looks to be a great game.

Don't forget Rayman Legends, which we just learned is Wii U exclusive and is really excellent.
