If you’re a Castlevania fan, then there’s a good chance that you’ve played a game in the series based on the Symphony of the Night model of vampire-stakin’. After all, there’s years worth of games based on that style. Last year’s Mirror of Fate though, was a successful blend between old and new Castlevania games. And now, it’s headed to console.

According to the Konami press release, the interquel set between Lords of Shadow and its upcoming sequel will have an HD boost from the 3DS version, online leaderboards, and a “Boss Rush Mode”.

Mirror of Fate was a great blend between the style of Lords of Shadow and older games of Castlevania that came before the widely-adopted Symphony of the Night model.
