Castlevania is one of the longest running franchises in gaming, has shown it's face across several console generations and has undergone several ups and downs over the decades. A couple years back, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow released as the first (mostly) successful 3D adventure in the Castlevania universe. With an entirely different approach to gameplay, it divided fans but found a happy place in the middle for everyone to agree upon. Mirror of Fate tries to take those new design concepts and marry them with the classic 2D-sidescrolling longtime fans of the series have come to love - but does it even work? Well, it's not broken really, but I wouldn't call it a success either.
