PlayStation Network pre-orders of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 for PS3 lands players a free digital copy of Mirror of Fate HD, Konami announced today.
Mirror of Fate HD, of course, is the graphically updated version of the 3DS follow-up to the first Lords of Shadow. Because so much of Lords of Shadow 2’s story is a direct response to the events in Mirror of Fate, this is more than a smart move and a very good offer for players who missed out on the game when it was restricted to a Nintendo handheld. Seriously, I think almost all the characters who aren’t Dracula and Zobek that appear in Lords of Shadow 2 are from Mirror of Fate.
Konami also released a new video for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 highlighting the Chaos Claws, a fire-based short-range ability of Dracula’s capable of smashing through heavy defenses.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 launches on Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 February 25 in North America, February 28 in Europe and the U.K.
