Mirror of Fate was originally intended to launch during fall 2012, but Konami pushed the game to early 2013 in August. Konami producer Dave Cox said the delay was borne of a desire to make sure the product is a "handheld title unlike any other."

Mirror of Fate redirects its focus on the Belmont clan, 25 years after Lords of Shadow's conclusion. Players take on the roles of Trevor and Simon Belmont, as well as Dracula's own son, Alucard. The game will also lead into next year's other Castlevania game, Lords of Shadow 2 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
